    This is a lovely spot to stop while in the Big Cottonwood Canyon area. There was plentiful free parking, restrooms, a café (not sure if it was open), and a staffed visitor center with interpretive exhibits. We enjoyed the easy walk on the Silver Lake Interpretive Trail, which circles the lake. We saw several bull moose, swimming in the lake and grazing in the brush right near us. All in all, a nice introduction to Utah’s scenic beauty for a couple of folks from southeastern PA.

    The Wasatch Mountain Range is an imposing and breathtaking national treasure. It is approximately 160 miles in length, and extends from the Idaho border to central Utah. The Big and Little Cottonwood Canyons are located on the east side of the Salt Lake Valley. This area of the Wasatch-Cache National Forest is filled with spectacular vistas, hiking trails, rock climbing opportunities, ski resorts, camping, and numerous photo ops. It is a beautiful area with numerous recreational activities!

    We spent a lovely summer afternoon at Snowbird, in the Wasatch Mountain Range. The Snowbird Bird Bundle cost $45/person, and accompanying activities include - unlimited rides on the Alpine Coaster, Mountain Coaster, Aerial Tram, Ski Lift, small Ropes Courses, Hiking and several other smaller attractions. It was a fun day at a beautiful venue. The only problem is to keep numbers down (COVID-19), and revenue up, you only have a three hour window to do everything! And that is impossible. Because of lines, and waiting for the aerial tram, we were only able to do the coasters once & ride the tram to the top and the ski lift down. It was a lovely day, and the scenery is spectacular, but not a lot of bang for your buck!
