We’re all in need of a mountain escape from time to time and luckily we live in a place where hiking, fishing, camping, and other outdoor adventures are easily accessible. We recently had the opportunity to gather with friends and family (fur babies included) at a special property neatly nestled in the rugged Uinta Mountains, just over an hour from Salt Lake City in Duchesne County.
Unofficially dubbed “The Beaver Ranch,” this scenic property features a Blue Ribbon Trout stream, secluded ponds, towering trees, mountain views and open grassy areas suitable for tents and campers alike. It comes with everything needed for your off-grid getaway, yet conveniently has cell service so that you can still – quite literally – work remotely if need be.
Even so, we quickly forgot about the city buzz as we toasted marshmallows over an open fire, played games, and relaxed by the Duchesne River. Local loan officer and fly-fisherman Trevor Tippetts of Direct Mortgage offered a few casting lessons to the youngest of the group, who spent the majority of the evening mastering their own skills in s’mores building and hot dog roasting. It was a welcomed respite for our crew and we’re looking forward to sharing more about this little slice of paradise.
