Field Trip to Red Butte Gardens

We had a fun field trip on Thursday to a garden North of Salt Lake City Center up by University of Utah. Red Butte is so beautiful this time of year with all the flowers blooming. And the grass was so green due to all of this rain we’ve been having.

Many look-out points, swings, and a duck pond too….

We keep making jokes that is seems like we are living in Seattle or something!

There is a creek running through the gardens…boy was it high Thursday!

The kids loved seeing insects, small animals and birds as well as smelling the fragrance and herb gardens and learning about the medicinal gardens. Kids don’t know how we make medicines so that was very intriguing to them.

Melissa was our cool docent for the day…

We had a great time on the busride too. Then we stopped and had a picnic on the way home at Liberty Park. We were sure glad it didn’t rain on our parade.  It was a very fun day.
