    Paris Ice Cave near Bear Lake Idaho

    We were up at Bear Lake this weekend and decided to go check out the Paris Ice Cave. The kids loved it, there was still a bit of ice down in the bottom, and a few cracks and crevices to explore.

    I'd seen pictures from earlier in the year of huge columns of ice, and foolishly thought this would still be the case. Even though there is ice year round in the cave, it still obviously fluctuates with the heat of the year, and we're in September now.

    Getting there, from Garden City Utah to Paris Idaho, it's roughly 20 miles. Then it's 10 miles up the Paris Canyon Road - dirt road. This is easily passable for almost any vehicle. Most of the road is in very good condition. You'll run into a few spots where you'll want to navigate around the rock sticking up @2 or 3 inches, but other than that it was easy for a Toyota Camry.

    Here's the parking lot on Google Maps

    Speaking of caves...we went up and checked out Garner Cave overlooking Ogden, just beneath Lewis Peak. It's appears to be a pretty neat cave, although none of us were prepared to scale the 20' length of knotted rope to gain access to it. Have to go better prepared next time. I'll post up some pics a little later.

    I've wanted to do Garner Cave for 25 years, never got to it. Shoot me an invite if you don't mind.

    Yeah, sure. The next time I'm headed that way I'll hit you up. The hike is pleasant, but I can see how many people have difficulty trying to locate the cave. There are trails crisscrossing all over that area, and you have to do some light rockclimbing to access the correct drainage.
