Porcupine Dam

I'm sitting in my bedroom, watching the snow fall and feeling so grateful that I live in such a beautiful place. I love living in Utah! How amazing is it to live in a place that I can take the dog out for a walk and see 7 deer standing less than 50 feet away? The longer I live here in Cache Valley, the more I fall in love with this gorgeous place.

On Monday, Tim and I took a drive to Porcupine Dam. I've heard of it and I knew it was somewhere in the valley, but I had no idea where it was. So, we took Kona and drove out to Paradise and past Avon and then up a canyon to the dam. It wasn't as snowy as we expected and the reservoir wasn't frozen over yet, but it was a cool place. Tim and I decided that we need to go camping there next summer. He seems to think that it is fun to swim in the reservoir. Yeah...I'll have to think about that... Apparently, I'm still somewhat opposed to the whole swimming in open water thing.

So you must go swimming there this summer!! I used to go there with my roommates all the time. We'd take layout rafts and tan and swim. We would even jump off the cliffs. The best part is that they only allow small fishing boats so no need to worry about that. Go do it and have a blast! It's truly one of my favorite places in Cache Valley.
