Tony Grove Get-Away

Jennifer and I finally decided to take advantage of our Tuesday-night, Wednesday-morning time off and loaded the “burlap boat” (as our friend calls it) onto the zuke and headed for Tony Grove Lake. Since we cut and wrap cheese for the markets on Tuesday morning, and since we had a tour for some out-of-town folks scheduled at 2 pm, we didn’t hit the road until after 4 pm. But the lake is less than 40 miles from our house (less than 10 miles if we were crows!), so we made it up in plenty of time to get a camp set up about a half mile below the lake. We had a very relaxing evening, then packed up and drove to the lake and were on the water by 8 am Wednesday. It was spectacular. Water so still it was like a mirror. Well, needless to say, we are going to remind ourselves that we do not need several days off to enjoy our beautiful surroundings. We’ll be making this a regular routine. A happy Jennifer and Pete make for happy cows and good cheese! -PS

It was nice to know the “girls” were just a few miles on the other side of those cliffs. 
How much prettier can it get? 
These are tiny.

About Pete

My wife and I own and operate Rockhill Creamery, a farmstead cheese business in the beautiful Cache Valley of Northern Utah. We have two children, both married and living in Salt Lake City. We were both newspaper people in our former lives, but decided to head down the agriculture path about 12 years ago.
