Caribbean of the Rockies | Tamela Rich
Stopping in Logan,UT for a bite to eat, my pink bra caught the attention of the manager, who asked about my ride and where I was headed. Turns out I would have missed Bear Lake if she hadn't reached out, and that would have been most unfortunate.

Caribbean of the Rockies

Dateline: 7/26/10.  Heading east after Idaho, I dipped into Utah before crossing back over to Wyoming and down to Denver. Stopping in Logan for a bite to eat, my pink bra caught the attention of the manager, who asked about my ride and where I was headed. Turns out I would have missed Bear Lake if she hadn’t reached out, and that would have been most unfortunate.

Called the “Caribbean of the Rockies” for its unique turquoise-blue color, the result of suspended limestone deposits, I was stunned by its beauty. It’s about 109 acres at over 5200′ elevation.

This was at the top of my ride through Cache National Forest, which included lots of curvy roads and sunshine. A map of the area below. GREAT DAY.
