Spring Break Hike

 My husband and I don't get time off work for Spring Break so we just took a free afternoon and went for a hike.
 The weather was gorgeous and it almost felt like we had escaped to Big Sky country (Montana).  But nope this is right in our own backyard.
 The hubs ready to go hiking up the mountain.
 I'm ready to go too.
 It was technically a very high foothill that we climbed but this is the view from the top.  We saw a guy paragliding like the one shown in this YouTube video.  What a view while floating effortlessly over the gorgeous west desert.
 Looking down on the quaint little town of Stockton, Utah.  It is just south of the city of Tooele.  Stockton has a little restaurant on Main Street called the "Stockton Miners Cafe" that has some really good food.  I got the Oven roasted Turkey Club sandwich.  The light avocado aioli sauce on it is sooo good.
 Look at all of those ATV trails to go exploring on.
 This is the old jail that is built into the foothill we climbed.

 This is a fun and modern park Stockton has with killer views.  Being this far out in the country means total peace and quiet. You can actually hear all of the birds chirping.  No noisy traffic to contend with.

 I'm standing on all of the fun play equipment for kids.  They would have a ball here.  They also have swings.
 Sorry this picture is a little crooked.  But they even have a skate park and a little covered table to eat at.  Bring a picnic lunch and spend the afternoon.
They also have a full basketball court and softball field.  Clark is ready to call it a day but it was a fun day spent in the great outdoors.
