Jeff and I went camping with friends at Strawberry Reservoir and had so much fun. We spent hours chumming for crawfish and caught about 50 to eat. And as if chumming wasn’t enough fun, we then cooked and ate them! Good times. It is such wonderful fun to go play with just adult friends. We all have busy lives with jobs and children. Adult friends have a carefree feel to them.
Jeff had some time off this week so we went hiking up Big Cottowood canyon to dog lake. It was overcast the entire time and we thought for sure we’d get rained on, but we didn’t. It was the first time I’d been here, and I was underwhelmed by the actual lake. Still, it was pretty and we saw a total of three people on the entire trek, and I really loved that.
Thursday night, the sky turned peachish pink. I am told it was from a fire just north of Lehi. Whatever it was, it was an eery feeling! The air was quite warm, and it felt like a premonition.
Last night, we decided to see if there were crawfish in the Tibble Fork reservoir. So the boys and I (Chance, Justin, Quinn and JK) headed up just in time to experience a downpour. The lightning in the canyon was at intervals of 20 seconds to 3 minutes and this lasted for about 25 minutes. I didn’t even realize lightning could hit in a canyon. I guess I know better now! We had to wait in the car until the lightning subsided. We chummed, we got nothing. Can you transplant crawfish from lake to lake? This inquiring mind wants to know. The boys brought fishing poles. It got dark and cold really fast, but not before the boys circled the reservoir with JK who had the time of his life, prancing around in the 3 inches deep water on the outskirts of the reservoir. He loves being in the great outdoors, that is for sure.
