Scenic viewpoint above Bear Lake, Utah.

This doesn't look interesting from here, but I will be staying at...

The Beach along the west shore of Bear Lake as I head...

When Charlie and I went to The Tetons and Yellowstone last year, we found a beautiful "scenic byway" through Logan, UT, that brought us to Bear Lake. The color of the water was so gorgeous that we were mesmerized. I vowed to come back and spend some time here, in addition to having a raspberry milkshake - something they're known for here.

Well, darn....the milkshake place was closed, probably for the season. :-( So, I proceeded to head south to Rendezvous Beach at the south end of the lake. It was super windy that day, but I found a site and got hooked up.

While the campground appears to have been built at the lake's edge, the water must have been really low, because it was about a 1/4 mile hike to the water. Between that and the wind, I decided this wasn't the place I'd idealized. The color of the lake was SO pretty, but the wind and distance to the water did not make this the ideal campsite for more than one night.

I checked the maps and decided that, instead of heading straight east through Wyoming, I'd drop down to Dinosaur National Park, UT, the next day.
