I have decided that when we are rich, we will have to own a vacation home at Bear Lake. It is a gorgeous place, has wonderful sandy beaches, and great shakes! This is the second time we visited Bear Lake. It was a bit cooler and the wind was strong. Fortunately, it was still beautiful. I find it very serene and peaceful. We went up there this time so Dave could do a 50 mile bike ride with the scouts. Yup, 50 miles. Technically the ride is 53 miles, and Dave "cramped" out at 51 miles. We also stayed with our Bishop's family. Their girls are great! (poor Joshua was left behind because he wasn't old enough).
