So after we were done watching the reenactment it was time to head onwards to the east trail that one of the employees told us about. She said the views were breathtaking and she was absolutely right.
Once we found the turn-off for the East trail (the West trail was closed due to cows crossing the roadway or so we were told).
But as we drove along we got to see views like this:
A little bit of history about the Chinese Arch:
Again, the views were just awesome to look at. The clouds in the sky having shadows on the mountains, where the lake used to be, just everything looked beautiful. It was also just calming to be standing around looking at everything as well.
Here you can see Gary taking a picture from the bottom of the arch to the top, where the rest of the group was standing.
The only wild animal we really saw on the trip. (And by wild I mean out in nature, because we did see wild animals at Yellowstone Bear World).
Here looks to be some sort of nest around the arch.
After the arch, we continued on the trail. This rock to us looked like a T-Rex head.
Next up was the Big Fill Trail. This was a walking trail. We didn’t complete the trail as we weren’t prepared for walking, but we all walked a little ways, and saw some nice views. (Gary, Andrew, and Brittany walked the furthest so they saw the most of the trail.)
Next up is a smaller post of lunch in downtown Brigham City!
