Each year during our Bear Lake stay we make the trek to Bloomington Lake (otherwise known as "one of the most gorgeous spots on earth").
Seriously, if I could just build a little cabin right in this spot and live there forever I'd be pleased as punch.
...except when I needed to get to the grocery store (it's at the top of a windy, rocky, bumpy road), and maybe it wouldn't be quite so hunky-dory when winter rolls in...
Ok, maybe I don't need a little house there, but man alive I'm glad we get to go there each year to soak it in.
Lucy likes it quite well too...especially since she got to be with her side-kick cousin.
She even walked most of the way herself...until her Dad's arms started to look a little too temping...
For me, the beauty of the hike is the pinnacle of the trip. But the main point of interest people go there for is the rope swing:Max and Elle are both now gutsy enough to do it....and of course I couldn't let them show me up.That ice water sure gives you a good jolt.
