How many of you have ever been to Bear Lake’s Quick and Tasty for a raspberry shake? Or had an “Old Ephraim” size pizza at Bear Lake Pizza? Or walked into the sandy warm water of Bear Lake for a quarter mile before it reached your waist?
Pick us! Pick us! We have.
It’s a great place for a family reunion. In fact we just got back from Bear Lake a week ago!
Okay, only a few of us went this year. Our family’s getting older and it gets harder and harder to get everyone together. But we had a great time, as always.
Bear Lake – or the “Caribbean of the Rockies” – is a natural freshwater lake on the Utah/Idaho border. You drive through the winding lush mountains just past the city of Logan and then, boom! You’re hit with the sight of a massive turquoise-blue body of water about 50-miles around. The only thing better than the view from a distance it the warm, clear, sandy experience from inside the water. It’s the closest thing to being at the beach that we’ve found. Maybe even a little better.
In Eric’s painting above, he’s spotlighted some of the fun tourist sights and destinations of Garden City, the small town closest to the lake. It’s a great place and a popular resort for people all over the western United States. Another thing it’s popular for is their high quality raspberries. They make the best shakes during raspberry season!
