Hiking to Lake Mary

On Saturday we decided to enjoy some of Utah’s beautiful scenery and take a hike up Big Cottonwood Canyon to Lake Mary! It was a steep climb upwards to this beautiful lake, but after a few stops we made it. You can also hike on from here to Lake Katherine. We passed several boy scouts on their way back down from an overnight camp out.  We are adding a backpacking trip to Lake Katherine on our to do list. It would be a great trip with the kids. 
The view from the top was far more impressive than anything we could have viewed from the couch. Hiking is always such an amazing thrill. It was a definitely a welcomed change from my usual cardio routine. The sun was shining and the weather was perfect. It was a great motivator to make it to the top. 
Below are some amazing pictures of Lake Mary and our trek to get there.
