The Wind Cave and Some Dog Photos

Posted by on Nov 1, 2015 in hiking, photography, utah | No Comments

Every place has that thing that tourists always do and locals only do when they’ve got friends visiting. In New York, it’s the Empire State building. In Logan, UT, it’s hiking to the Wind Cave. After more than a year living here, we finally buckled down, kidnapped a couple neighborhood dogs, and made the 5 minute drive up the canyon to the trailhead. Turns out it’s really cool, and one of the closest trails to town.

The cave sits perched on top of a limestone cliff band and has epic views of Logan Peak on the other side of the canyon.

It's really cool -- carved out limestone so eroded that it's more like a series of arches than a cave.
