Four Lakes, Six Miles

Last weekend we decided to take on a longer hike then usual, a six miler.  Liam just loves being in the mountains and practically asks to go on a hike every morning, so he seemed ready for a longer trek.  We like to let him hike as much as he is willing, which is usually around 1-2 miles.  It has been incredible to watch him gain confidence walking on big rocks and steep inclines.  He is becoming more fearless by the day!  
Our friend Joel recommended this four lake hike that begins at Brighton Resort, only about 30-40 minutes from our house.  The views were spectacular, by far my favorite hike that we've done in Utah!  I don't have a witty story to share about our hike or anything particularly eventful; instead, just a beautiful day spent with my family.  The pictures can do all the talking...

Wish I was back here already!
We talked about a little camping trip over labor day weekend...
we'll see...


  1. Wow that's gorgeous! And I'm impressed Liam can walk that far! I always underestimate these little kids' abilities!

  2. Wow, you have some beautiful hiking territory. My husband and I have recently gotten into hiking after our Alaska/Canada trip and are constantly looking for small and long hikes. So awesome your lil man is growing in confidence and loves the outdoors!

  3. Wow that is so beautiful! You're so lucky to have that space to take Liam out to :)

  8. It is so amazing that you have such a great area to get out and hike in a place so beautiful. We love doing things like that, but it just isn't really an option here. Pretty spectacular backyard for Liam to have!
