My Favorite Hikes

We go on a lot of hikes during the summer, and it's gotten to the point where I need to keep track of all our favorites. My husband suggested I start a new blog just for our hiking adventures, but that sounded like a lot of work, especially since I haven't been keeping up the blog I already have.

I was lucky enough to take a few little hikes in Virginia this summer, but for the purpose of this blog post, I'm going to list the hikes near Salt Lake City, Utah, where we live. I'm going to categorize these as hikes with waterfalls (my favorite), hikes near lakes, shady hikes, and harder but beautiful hikes.
