Hiking Dog Lake and Mary's Lake at Brighton Resort



We are busy scouting out places for a whole family picture. We want to have some of the red maples, yellow aspen and green evergreen trees, rocky mountains and maybe some small lake in the background. I don't ask for much do I?

So we've been out on hikes in our gorgeous Utah mountains surrounding the ski areas of Alta, Snowbird and Brighton Resorts. Here are a few great pics I got.





Here is the beginning of the trail...just to the right up is the ski lift at Brighton Ski Resort Hike....


It is weird that the hiking trail is all through a ski resort! So nice of them to let us do this! 

the first real landing we came to... it was hard hiking straight up for  most of it! 



Almost to the pasture area of  Dog Lake...This would be a perfect shot if there were more wildflowers or more color....

We saw a family of 4 moose on the  Dog Lake Hike...

On a rock at Dog Lake....that's the first lake you come to...it's tiny but picturesque 


PHOTO OP!  This is getting blown up to an 8 x 10 for sure! Beautiful Dog Lake Hiking.... 

You can see several of the moose we saw...a buck in the background.....they didn't seem to mind us at all.....

The hubs and I...

A close up of the baby moose....so cute! 


There were a few wildflowers here and there....October would probably be  even prettier! 

We got close and took a shot of the mama right, and baby, left.  Then we got outta there!  We don't want a charging moose mama marring our hike! Yeah...getting impaled by a moose? Not so fun....



Now if I could only get my whole family on top of this hill...what a great shot this would be! 

When I turned around to see how high we were I almost fell off the rock!  Scared of heights EEK! 

Can you see the waterfall just to the left of us....it was so loud! 


We saw 6 moose in all ...this was a mom with a baby nearby we saw on the way back.....They were bedding down for the night under a tree....so sweet! 


We set up the tripod again at Mary's Lake.... another good shot! 

Lots of granite rock everywhere....at Mary's Lake in Utah....

Mary's Lake....peaceful and rocky....

Last part of the trail down....it was sunset almost....everything was so cool.....

Some of the wildflowers we saw.....


We enjoyed hiking up Brighton's Lake Mary trail. It was really beautiful. Hard on the knees coming down, but worth it. 
Brighton Ski Resort hiking in the summer...super fun half day trip!  Very easy too.....I think 5 year olds could do it....
It took us about 2 1/2 hours start to finish and we sat around the lake a half hour just enjoying it all.....Try it!
