Since Pioneer Day is a Holiday here in Utah, we decided to make our way up to beautiful Park City, Utah!
The kids enjoyed eating on Main Street at the Park City Pizza Co (their garlic rolls!!). And, of course the ice cream at the Java Cow. We also really liked the Thai Curries at the Park City Chinese and Thai restaurant. The curries were surprisingly good with lots of fresh veggies, and they gave a nice size portion, I ate my leftovers the next day!
The kids of course enjoyed the pool, and lounging in their Puj Poolside Big Hug hooded towels (Get 15% off with code, ARMELLEBLOG15 ).
We stayed at the lodges at Park City Mountain Resort. We couldn’t believe how green and beautiful the mountains were!
On Pioneer Day we were able to get some good hiking in!
We headed up to Guardsman Pass, and did a fun hike we’ve never been on called Blood’s Lake!
We made the mistake of heading up the mountain thinking we were on the right trail, and a 1,000 ft climb in less than a half a mile later, we saw a nice view way down the mountain of Blood’s Lake where we were headed. Oops. It got so steep towards the top with the rocks, that we all ended up on our bums at one point. Ha!
But, it was some gorgeous views, and the wildflowers were still out, so it wasn’t a total bust!
We finally turned back, and made our way down to Blood’s Lake, which ended up not being a bad hike at all. We definitely took the hard way!
I mean, how gorgeous, right?! I live for this stuff! There’s nothing better to me than gorgeous outdoor scenery!
If you end up hiking to Blood’s Lake. Be sure to take the path on the left going down. Don’t make the same mistake we did. Lol!

We also hit the Olympic Training Park in Park City. My kids loved watching the skiers do tricks off the jumps, and reading up on the location in their Travel Passport from Tava Adventures, a cute little passport highlighting and giving information for fun attractions! They also have several other cities the kids can read up on as well!
We really enjoyed our little stay up in Park City! We are so lucky to have so beautiful areas to explore in our own backyard!
