Hi Everyone, here at the Red Couch, we do other things besides cooking and baking. I decided to show you one of the things that we have been up to this summer. WOOO --- HOOO...it's so much fun! Our family is composed of "water dogs!" A cheap thrill for me is swimming in a clean lake! In my youth, I have fond memories of swimming at Devil's Lake and Lake Winnebago in Wisconsin. This summer, my kids have discovered cliff jumping in two different locations. My favorite is a spot where you jump into the pool of a waterfall!

Talley at the Lake. It was our first visit and we had no swimsuits...did that stop them? No!
Skyler at the Lake doing the intermediate jump. The water levels have lowered and now it is not safe to jump the intermediate jump.
Words of Caution: We have had a lot of fun jumping this summer, but it can be very dangerous if you don't check the water depth where you are jumping. Water levels vary greatly so rocks that have been covered by deep water, can, in just a few weeks, be uncovered! In Utah, reservoirs are full at the beginning of summer and as water is used for irrigation and home use, they lower. A spot we had just jumped at three weeks ago has gone down by five or six feet, making the intermediate jump (and high) not safe!

I am posting this with Summer Sundays, because our family is all about water in the summer.
