Memory Grove Hike

On Saturday, we decide to drive up to Salt Lake City to Memory Grove. Adjoining the grove is City Creek Canyon: a beautiful canyon just east of Temple Square. The Canyon has a mountain creek that flows through it down to the grove. In 1999 a tornado hit the park and although no structures were damaged the park lost a considerable amount of trees. Since then Salt Lake City and FEMA have worked very hard to replace and rejuvenate the park.

The grove is absolutely beautiful. On any given day you may see all of the above: a bride and groom taking wedding photos, dogs splashing in the water and a family on a picnic.

Knowing the creek is right there, we bought along our tennis shoes and swim clothes to walk up the creek. The water was very shallow (great for kids) and fairly warm this time of year. Along the way there are several waterfalls we climbed up and a few archways we swam under.

Don't they look they are up to no good.

Yep! Pretty Much.

The sun came out in the afternoon and we loved spending our Saturday in the water.
