We spent the weekend at Jordanelle State Park in Utah. On Saturday, we joined park naturalist, Kathy Donnell, for a walk about at Hailstone Campground. On our walk we spoke to over 130 campers about the importance of practicing Leave No Trace while enjoying the splendors at Jordanelle. The park is home to Jordanelle Reservoir, which is a future water supply for Utah. In addition to industrial, municipal, and irrigation water, the reservoir provides critical wildlife habitat and recreation opportunities. It is the largest man-made impoundment within the Bonneville unit of the Central Utah Project- the largest water development project in Utah history. If you get a chance to visit the park, be sure to check out Rockcliff, which is at the east end of the park. Rockcliff has walk-in tent sites, a boat ramp, river and reservoir access, and a beautiful nature center, where you can touch a grizzly bear (if you dare!). It is considered a hidden gem of the park, as many park visitors do not know about it! We want to thank Kathy for a wonderful weekend of fun, exploration, and outreach. We are off to Salt Lake City for the Outdoor Retailer Show...
