We left Salt Lake early Friday afternoon and after a couple of stops to pick up some beer and food, we were off to Happy Fish Cabin at Fish Lake in south central Utah. We arrived to a surprising amount of fresh snow on the ground as Fish Lake is at an elevation of almost 9,000 feet, and unloaded the car as fast as we could to get out of the cold.

I got a tour of the cabin and it was even more awesome than I could have imagined. It was rustic, cozy, and huge! I loved the giant windows in the living room area - it almost felt like being in a greenhouse looking out on all the cold and snow from the warm, comfortable cabin.
|Too early for this much snow!|
|Hunter's favorite cabin activity|
Hunter and I walked down to Fish Lake to enjoy the sunshine and take some pictures of the fresh snow and the yellow aspen trees. As much as I dislike snow, it definitely made for some very pretty scenes around the lake.

Lisa is very familiar with the area from all the years her family spent at the lake, and she took us to a few viewpoints that made for some fun excursions from the cabin. Time in the cabin was spent cooking, drinking good beer, and playing fun games that Jeanne always seemed to win.
