the simple and spectacular Barraston Ponds free camping near Mona UT

as our story continues…

after an enjoyable night along Utah Lake (just a bit south of Salt Lake City) our adventurous caravan* moved a bit farther South to the wonderful wonderful spot of Barraston Ponds (near Mona UT just off hwy 15)

not hard to find- the landscape is generally quite open and the patch of green is evident even from Hwy 15

These pics are from when we first got there and started getting to know the place.  Vail went from site to site looking for the best waterfront spot where the puppies could play.

This simple campground was close enough to humanity to make it very convenient.  It was surprisingly beautiful and serene.  There were very few other campers who showed up during the days that we were there.  It was a bit warm during the day but having spent so many summers in Orlando, couldn’t complain.

Home is where you’re with family.  This spot made a wonderful home for us while we were there.
