From Snow Canyon we made our way to Eden.
We purposely took a roundabout way to Washington instead of the California-Oregon route, just so we could spend some time in another place we call home
Nestled in the Ogden Valley near the Pineview Reservoir and surrounded by mountains so perfect, they look like Hollywood backdrops; Eden is our go-to getaway spot.
We fell in love with the area almost 9 years ago. Dave and I were visiting friends in Park City who invited us along on their annual Powder Mountain full moon ski trip.
“Only tell people you love about Powder Mountain,” Pete whispers.
(Yes, I realize I did the opposite of that but since our induction into Pete’s secret society, somebody let the mountain lion out of bag and put the word out on how awesome and special this mountain is. But it wasn’t me!)
When we got to the mountain, we could see why he was so protective.
With snow puking everywhere on the deep and fluffy base, we were in a winter wonderland. And once we got in a couple runs, we were hooked. We’ve been going there ever since.
The valley itself is gorgeous no matter what season. The frozen reservoir of winter and ice fishing, welcomes boats, water sports and more fishing in the summer. On the mountain, bikes and hikes replace powder days. It’s magic. Year round.
But don’t take our word for it. Go see for yourself. Just don’t tell anyone.
