Flaming Gorge

Since I've got a big trip to Asia next week I've stuck around Utah for weekend
getaways in order to save money.  It's been a while since I've stuck
around home for so long during the summer.  Usually I'm out and about traveling and 
exploring new places.  But it's given me such an appreciation for this
beautiful state I live in.  I keep discovering and re-discovering new places
that are absolutely stunning.  

Last weekend a group of us went to Flaming Gorge, it's between Utah and Wyoming.
I had no idea how pretty it'd be, but wow I was blown away by the deep emerald water, 
the red and white rock backgrounds and how perfect the weather was.

We camped on a little island that was only accessible by boat, it was a dream.
We had no cell phone service which was even better to really get away from
it all and relax and we spent our days playing in the water, boating, jumping off the dock, 
relaxing and chatting around the campfire.  It was a perfect weekend in all aspects.

^^These guys such show-offs!
^^Jumping off the boat.
Cliff jumping, of course I was not participating in that--fear of heights and speed, no bueno.
^^Lazy time swimming around the dock.

I think FG is calling my name for next summer!

  1. I've always wanted to go cliff jumping. It looks like you guys had so much fun! I guess being stuck close to home isn't too bad after all ;). Beautiful pictures!
