Cecret Lake

Nope that isn't a typo that's how they spell it. On Saturday we went up to Alta and hiked up to Cecret Lake. It was so gorgeous. I've never seen so many wildflowers in my life. If you are reading this you have to go up there because it's amazing.

Okay so I've seen a lot of Indian Paintbrush before (that's a certain wildflower for you non-flower people) but I've never been a fan till now. Holy cow, they were bright pink and peach and just everywhere. I've always seen them being more red and never this many in one place. Might be my new favorite wildflower.

Logan loved the hike and just jabbered the whole way.
This shot was while I was trying to set up the camera on a rock to do a family shot but I like how it turned out.
Here's that family shot.
Another family shot but Logan wanted to look at me because I was running to hurry and sit before the timer went off. Yeah he laughed every time because I did look like a dork.
Here is the lake.
Ignore the fat girl in the shot, I put this photo on so you could see more of the lake and how gorgeous it is.
This was taken on the side of the road. The photo doesn't look as good online as it does in my files but the hillside is just covered in flowers.
Then the last two are just pictures of the mountains. It was so green it felt like you weren't in Utah.

After we went to BBQ at Aisha's house. It was so funny because I wanted to tell her to take her friend visiting from Maine up there but they were there probably an hour before us at the same exact place. Great minds must think alike.

Looks so pretty. Is it an easy hike? Mike is in love with Indian Paintbrush too. I love all your pictures, they turned out great.

Yes, it was beautiful! Too bad we didnt' coordinate because we could have been taking the family pics for you!! Too bad you missed the rain and hail storm we were running back to the car in!
