Hike to Dog Lake

We decided to take the kids hiking one last time for the summer. We left the HOT Salt Lake Valley and proceded up to Brighton Ski Resort (where the trailhead is) only to be greeted by some chilly weather. We weren't quite prepared for the biting air, but we set off anyway. What a beautiful hike! I had no idea that the Wasatch Mountains held such treasured views! The boys had been to a primary activity where their faces had been painted like animals. Nick was the lucky "face artist" called upon by the primary president.
On the hike in we met up with a little girl with her dad that had fallen and she had blood running down her leg into her shoe. I gave them some items from our first aid kit and wished them the best. The hills were rocky and steep so we watched our footsteps a little closer after that.

Arrival at Dog Lake. We ate our lunches in the peace and serenity. We saw many small critters and enjoyed ourselves before making our decent.
