Hike to Larva Lake

One of the ways Chad and I like to keep our relationship strong and let ourselves relax is by going on some type of adventure once a week. Chad took me up to another of his favorite spots in the Uintah Mountains. We hiked through the Ashley National Forest on our way to a small glacial lake called Larva Lake. On the way there were a lot of cut trees from timber sales which made us both frown. But once we got out of the logging area, the terrain became interesting – lots of big pink rocks and boulders, signs of the glacial past of the area. We stopped to nibble on tiny little huckleberries that packed a mighty big punch of flavor. When we got to the lake we found a fallen log to do some yoga poses on. I nearly fell in, but managed to regain my balance at the last second. The change in altitude really got to me up here – going from 5000-ish feet to 10,000-ish in a couple of hours is new for me, and just sounds pretty unbelievable anyway. The lovely glacial lake was well worth the trip.
