ymcaPart of the fun of camping is trying out new locations and exploring the area.  The Soapstone campground in the Uintas has plenty to offer when it comes to exploring but we came across one thing that I was not expecting…  YMCA Camp Roger!

This place is special to me as I spent several summers here when I was younger.  I had thought about it over the years and never really knew where it was and sure enough, we ran right into it.  One of the leaders I had several times at the camp (Alf) oddly enough became my boss later in my life when I was working at the Hansen Planetarium in Salt Lake.

Another neat discovery is the “Fairy Forest” which was just up the street from Soapstone.  I wont say to much but if you are in the area you must look it up and stop by.
