The Caribbean in Utah…Who Knew?

Rick Morgan

September 8, 2008

We left Flaming Gorge early in the morning and given a fond farewell by a buck Pronghorn Antelope. Continuing our drive, we spotted the Fort Bridger State Historic Site and Museum, so of course we had to stop to learn more about the original “mountain man” Jim Bridger, and one of the main hubs of westward expansion.

Onward toward our destination, Bear Lake State Park in Utah, the view of the most colorful rocks and mounds along the way were amazing! Arriving at Bear Lake was a real wow! We were taken aback to discover right here in Utah, there would be waters as colorful as those of the Caribbean. Luckily, we were able to find a wonderful camping spot with spectacular views of the surrounding mountains and vivid waters.
