On our way out of town, we stopped to take a picture of Zips, a memorable, yet casual eating experience that we really enjoyed the day before.
There were beautiful vistas as you crest the hill leading into Logan Canyon, overlooking the Bear Lake valley. Everything was so green still, and the temperature was so pleasant.
When we got to Logan, we decided to visit some of the recommended sites. First stop- Gossner's Factory for flavored milk. We ended up buying a variety of flavored shelf-stable milks including cookies and creme, orange cream, strawberry, chocolate, and my favorite, root beer float milk. We kept them in our car, since they don't need refrigeration until you break the seal, and brought them back as tasty souveniers to share with our kids.
We walked the grounds of the Logan temple. It is very castle-like in it's appearance.
And we also visited a little local zoo that was shady and had plenty of neat animals to see.
|Steve could jump as far as a kangaroo rat, which is to say, a little farther than a bullfrog, but not as far as a jackrabbit.|
|Dusting off my hat that fell off when I jumped. I only made it as far as a bullfrog.|
|These painted rocks are really cool and I thought I'd use them as inspiration for an art activity with my kids sometime.|
|This duck liked Steve and let him get really close.|
|This turtle was quite active while we were there.|
|This one had a cool head design.|
|This peacock was SHOWING OFF! It was so cool to watch it come and spread it's feathers and strut in circles.|
|This Emu wasn't afraid of us.|
|It's not everyday you see an Emu, a Pelican, and a Reindeer in the same field!|
|We bought some duck food pellets and fed some to these little ducklings, and gifted the rest to some kids to continue feeding the ducks.|
