Cousin hike to Cecret Lake

Ever since my cousin Lisa and I connected on Instagram, we have kept in touch better and because of that have become a little closer. She has seen all of my adventures on Instagram, so when she came to Utah, she wanted to adventure together. Of course I was more than excited. 

She left it up to me to decide where to go on our hike. Because her family was coming and my cousin Dave and his family were coming... I wanted to take them somewhere beautiful but also family friendly. Cecret Lake is the PERFECT place. I never get tired of going there, so I didn't mind. I was more than happy to go with them especially because the last time I went we didn't get far because of the rain. 

So I met up with Lisa & Family and Dave and Family at the bottom of Provo Canyon after work on Thursday. We all piled into the Wishart party van. Lisa had  Dewski (Mountain Dew) ready for me to prep for the hike. That is how the Anderson's roll. We made our way up to Little Cottonwood Canyon. 

As soon as we got there, everyone was so excited over how beautiful it was. That is when I knew I chose the right spot. All the kids made the hike. There was lots of stopping to explore and off trail and taking of pictures... everyone had a great time.

We eventually made it up to the lake. I got the kids all excited before we got there and told them there were salamanders that they could catch at the lake. They were SOOOO excited. As soon as we got there I started pointing them out to the kids and they got right in the water to start catching them. 

The sun started to set and it was time to hike back. 

On our way back we ran into some moose! I loved watching the mom and her two babies!!! I took a ton of pictures of them and probably got a lot closer than I should have.

So glad I was able to spend some quality time with my cousins. I really love them. They are a blast to hang out with and I wish we all got to hang out a lot more. So glad they let me tag along so much during the week while Lisa's family was here.

That salamander in a bottle is crazy! That looks like it was a fun time. I haven't seen those folks in a long time. And what a beautiful place.
