Nestled in the North Eastern part of Utah is the beautiful Wasatch Mountain Range, running 160 miles along the Utah-Idaho border. While many of us know the incredible wonders of South Utah, from the lushness of Zion, to the amazing Arches National Park, the North part of Utah is just as beautiful. We had some of our wolfpack head up to the Wasatch Range and get ready to celebrate the Fourth of July, living their Life Elevated.
The Wasatch Range offers some great hiking trails for all levels. An easy but beautiful trail is to Willow Lake. The surrounding colors are bright & beautiful, especially if you opt to hang by the lake until sunset. Golden hour offers intense green trees, bright & colorful wildflowers and and the blue skies reflect so beautifully off of the still lake. Along with Willow Lake, you can hike to Lake Blanche, Silver Lake, Lake Mary or do the Donut Falls hike. Each hike offers some of the most beautiful views Northern Utah has to offer.
The Wasatch Range is pretty remote, but you are very close to Salt Lake City and some of the small towns in between. Head into the city for a bite to eat and maybe some dancing afterwards at Zest Kitchen & Bar. It's mostly completely vegan but also has a few options for vegetarians. No matter your diet, you will find something delicious at zest and probably end up spending some more of your night here after a day of hiking!
To see: There's so much natural beauty throughout the whole state of Utah to see. Spend as much time there as you can! Hike in the Wasatch Range, spend a night out in Salt Lake City, and go mountain biking through the forest. If you have time, head South of Salt Lake and take a visit to Monument Valley, Arches National Park, Zion National Park and Canyonlands. The vast array of landscapes throughout the whole state is simply remarkable! Start planning your trip & make sure to bring our moisture-wicking, sustainable threads!
