For those of us outdoors folk who actually live here in Utah, there’s a damn good reason for it. And I intend to show you all, one picture and one adventure at a time, why Utah really is the greatest place on earth.

I mean… you may be allowed to drink coffee and not be banned from your siblings’ wedding for it, but I get to hike a couple miles through my favorite canyon and arrive at this…

Gorgeous Lake Mary.

Thousands of people pull up to the Brighton Ski Resort every summer for some amazing hiking trails. The Brighton Lakes trail takes them to three different lakes (Dog Lake, Lake Mary, and Lake Katherine). Less than four-miles round trip, this is a family favorite.

And that is why I live in Utah.
