Silver Lake is nestled at the top of Big Cottonwood Canyon. It's surrounded by a lovely boardwalk, which makes it the perfect "hike" for a girl who's just realizing that her feet can take her running away from mama. Watching her run, swing her arms around as she pointed at every little thing, and try to jump into the marsh, we remembered how much our pink-nosed girl loves the outside. We felt a little bad that we've kept her cooped up so much recently.
This is one of the biggest reasons we moved back to Utah. Next to having an aunt or grandma on hand at any moment in time, our mountains were calling us. And we're so glad they call to Belle as well.
