The in-laws go on an annual camping trip.
We went to Albion Campground just above Alta and Brighton Ski Resorts this year.
We stayed in campground #10.
The best part?
The moose that lives in gampground #12.
He was a daily occurance, with an occasional glimpse of the mommy and baby.
Even though it happened to snow on us, the boys had a great time.
We took one day to hike to Cecret Lake.
The trail is very wide and my two year old made it almost the entire way on foot.
We turned around near the top (ran out of time), but it was definitely good enough to go back.
Sorry for the lack of pictures, though.
However, on the way down we of course saw the moose again...
So, if you are looking for a beautiful camping spot, or just a day to go hiking, Albion would be a great choice.
Here's how to get there:
Make your way up the canyon to Alta ski resort.
Stay on that road, passing Alta, and follow it all the way up to the top.
There is a ranger station just after the resort, if you need directions.
