My niece, Rachel summed up Bear Lake and our decades of family vacations there, this way:
This place is sacred for us. So many memories lie in this sand and swim in this water. We have laughed here. We have loved here. We have lost here. We have lived here. Every year is different. We are all a year older, maybe a little wiser, but definitely changed.
Here are our Bear Lake Bests:
Melinda: The Family tree picture. It changes every year, but I'm so glad we take it.
