Summer Trip 2019, Uinta-Wasatch-Cache-National Forest, Pleasant Grove, Utah

Granite Flat Campground

Tibble Fork Reservoir near Granite Flats 

Barbara and I had a wonderful stay in Unita-Wasatch-Cache-National Forest near Salt Lake City. The National Forest service campground, Granite Flat, is high in the Wastch mountains near the majestic Timpanogos mountain named after an Indian princess. Folks from the greater Salt Lake City area escape the warmer temperatures of the valley to enjoy trail rides, hiking and water sports at the nearby Tibble Fork Reservoir.

Barbara has family in the Pleasant Grove area, a suburb just south of Salt Lake City, that she recently discovered from her studies of her ancestry. We had a wonderful time getting acquainted and spending quality time boating and touring the area. We enjoyed a trip to the Deer Creek Reservoir and a visit Temple Square in the center of Salt Lake City. We were able to see the Mormon Tabernacle choir perform live Music and the spoken word, the longest running broadcast starting in 1929.

Salt Lake City is a wonderful area to visit with so many interesting places to see with a good deal of history and many places to explore the great outdoors with all the activities that make this place so special.

We were so joyful having made contact with our family and making lasting memories with plans to gather again in the future.
