Mirror Lake is a peaceful place and there's a boardwalk and a good path all the way around it. Take a picnic, sit at one of the lakeside tables and enjoy the scenery and calm. If you like to fish, the lake is full of them just waiting for your lure o...
Get out of the valley heat and into a different world. Drive up to Silver Lake. You're likely to see a moose, potguts (Uintah ground squirrels) and a few ducks. The small lake is stocked, so fishing can be good. Or just watch. We're so lucky to live...
Alta's wildflowers are at their best right now. Fields of pink, blue, yellow, purple and red await you at the top of Little Cottonwood Canyon. They don't last long, so drive up and see them now. It's a fabulous show and it's free. Drive up the can...
We were hiking at Brighton and met a real mountain man. Brochures show mountain men to be guys with grizzley beards, leather jackets with fringe on the sleeves and maybe a wolf for a companion. This guy wore jeans and a Tshirt and he didn't have a be...
There's no admission fee to see this dinosaur! He (or maybe it's a she) stands in a field in Draper. During some seasons, the dinosaur holds a beach ball, a pin wheel, a wreath or something else that's seasonal until the wind blows it away. It's a ho...

I have two favorite solvents: finger nail polish and rubbing alcohol. If I can't remove marks or goo with those, I'm stumped. Then someone forwarded one of those emails that gets forwarded to everybody. It was the history of WD40 and it's myriad of u...

My normally athletic friend was recovering from knee replacement -- and she was bored walking around the block for exercise. Where could we go for an easy, relaxing walk where she wouldn't stumble? There's a lovely, short walk that's almost a secret....
If we were meant to ride a bike, we should have been born with one! But all joking aside, biking is fun and it's good exercise. Every Wednesday morning there's a short and scenic bike ride -- just 7 flat miles -- and you're invited to come pedal with...
