September Monthly Meeting and Bear Lake Drive

By: Valerie Francis & Doyle Sturm


Date & Time: Saturday, September 9th 10:00 AM

Location: Shepard Park (also called Farmington City Park)

Address: 760 Shepard Lane, Farmington UT (The park is located behind the elementary school and LDS church house)


The annual favorite Bear Lake Raspberry Shake Drive is finally here!


Details for meeting: We will meet at 10:00 am at Shepard Park (Farmington City Park), address: 760 Shepard Lane, Farmington UT.  The park is located behind the elementary school and LDS church house.

Bring your camp chairs in case the pavilion is occupied, and if you like, a breakfast or snack to eat in the park while we have the meeting. Hoping to be on the road by 11:00 am.

Route: It’s a long 2-hour 40-minute drive from the park to Bear Lake - plus an additional 2 hours or more home, not including stops, so we need to get an early start. From the park we will travel north on Hwy 89 to Weber Canyon, then up over Trappers Loop past Huntsville and on to Monte Cristo Hwy. Then on to Woodruff and Randolph, ending in Garden City at Bear Lake.  We will decide bathroom breaks as we go, which may be in Hunstville City Park, or Woodruff Country Store, or Randolph City Park… or a campground along the way.

Different this year: Due to sometimes feeling rushed in the past when we reach Bear Lake, the drive will officially end at Garden City. Everyone can stay however long they want to enjoy a raspberry shake, have lunch, spend some time on the beach, or even drive around the whole lake. Each can then make their own way back over Logan Canyon and home (see note below).

Note: There have been some notices online that UDOT will be installing fiber optic cables in Logan Canyon throughout this fall, starting at both ends (for cell service towers and additional traffic cameras). “Construction will mostly be limited to the shoulder of the road, but that likely means lane closures depending on the area”.  Hopefully since we will be traveling on a Saturday there won’t be any active construction going on.  In any case, drive home safely.

Total drive time from Farmington back to Bountiful is 4-hrs 44 minutes, plus stops, and 234 miles.
