Backpacking Trip to Island Lake

Our friends Mike & Katy Blommer have a tradition of going backpacking over the Fourth of July weekend. Reini had to work on the fourth, so we got up early the next day and drove up to the Uintas to hike in and meet them. We went to Island Lake; an easy four mile hike in. It was beautiful! The weather was perfect, the scenery was great, and there were hardly any mosquitoes! This was our first time backpacking this year and we were so excited to finally go. We love being in the outdoors together; we always have so much fun!
