Hiking Tony Grove Lake 8,000 feet up in Utah Mountains video




In an unpredictable series of events, I’ve decided to post a video of a remarkable lake bustling with wildflowers, birds, and even June snow.

Context: We recently had a friend come visit and took her up to Tony Grove Lake, which is remarkable for many reasons, not the least of which is its 2400+ meter (8000+ ft.) elevation.

It was formed by a glacier (of course), and even though it was June, the elevation had preserved whole patches of snow, enough so that we built a tiny snowman next to the green grass. We even saw a Cooper’s Hawk. (And rest assured, I’ll return to the Hawaii videos soon.)

Of course, the best way to experience this remarkable wild place is by going there, but until then, this video should tide you over. It’s called Hiking Tony Grove Lake in the Utah Mountains:

Topics

Montezuma’s Revenge, little rodents that carry The Plague, water bugs, eating tree sap, Snowman on a mountainside, Cooper’s Hawk riding the thermals, and a view of Tony Grove Lake.

Jumping off Ruins @ Coconut Island, Hilo, Big Island video




Today I’m sharing a remarkable experience of the Big Island that’s a part of everyday life for people who live in Hilo: Coconut Island.

In fact, the petite island is so close to Hilo that all you have to do to visit is cross a short bridge.

Without a question, the COOLEST thing on Coconut Island are the salt bath ruins that tower above the water. As you’ll see in the video, just follow the steps up and enjoy a great dip into the Pacific!
