Summer Plans


Andrew Barker

Summer is something I think all of us take for granted. It is the last time you will have three months off with no work or no stress. You will only be with this group of people for the three years of highschool and then everyone goes their separate ways. So what can we do this summer to make it one to remember?

Causey is up past Morgan, it is a reservoir. You and your friends can do several things up there. The reservoir is full of rainbow trout, cutthroat trout, brown trout, and sockeye salmon. Fishing would be a relaxing and fun experience. You can also rent a paddle board, life jacket, and paddle for only $25 a day at Green Adventure Sports. If you are feeling risky you can go cliff diving. At Causey you have to be wearing a life jacket or you will receive a ticket.

Again up in Morgan you can tub the river. There is a van service that will have you park at the end and they will shuttle you to the top. It is $20 a person to be able to rent the tub, the rental lasts all day. This is a very relaxing date idea. Make sure to wear sunscreen! I also work at a cafe up there called The Post where you can come grab a burger or pizza and say hi.

The Front is a gym with a big rockwall. They have locations in both Ogden and Salt Lake. It is $19 a day for a day pass to the gym. This gym has climbing, yoga classes, group fitness, weights and cardio. If you did want to climb, you would have to rent equipment or bring your own. Renals there are climbing shoes: $6, harness: $5, belay device: $5, and chalk bag: $2. Or you can get a packaged deal for $10.

Ogden Twilight concerts are always so lively. They are $10-$15. This year’s big headliners are Noah Cyrus, GroupLove, Portugal. The Man, and The Flaming Lips. They are selling out quickly so hurry and buy your tickets before they are gone. In past years they have had good food trucks and it’s always fun to see live music, especially this year due to the fact that everything has been shut down.

Motor-Vu Drive in Double Feature is the perfect date for you and that special someone to cuddle up and watch a movie on a hot summer night. It is $5 a car plus $9 a ticket. You do have to wear a mask when you aren’t in your vehicle. So get some snacks and drink, bring your cozy blankets, and settle in for a vintage experience you won’t forget.
