Bear Lake

Bear Lake is the 2nd largest lake in Utah but also shares the lake with Idaho. My brother and his family came over from Portland for a family reunion of the Heath family so I drove north and into the Logan mountains to see them.

 This was taken looking East at the top of the ridge before going down to Garden City, Utah. I caught a hummingbird having lunch. Apparently, a fur trapper discovered this lake in 1819. The lake is 18 miles long and over 7 miles wide.

 Another view from the top of the ridge.

 Taken from a wonderful Bed and Breakfast called the Bluebird Inn on the Idaho side, still looking east. There was a pond in front of the B&B with water lillies.


Trying to get views of the lake through the pines.

 This was garden area at that B&B in Idaho.

Best view of Bear Lake from the Utah side where my brother was staying.
