Utah Site: Midway/Homestead Crater and Springs

Over Memorial Weekend, we headed up to Brodi's parents condo in Midway. The weather was great and the kids played soccer, went biking, hiking, etc. We also took the kids to the Homestead crater. I had never been, but it is essentially a little hill in the middle of the Homestead. Even though I have been to Midway countless times, I never knew what that little hill was.



Inside is a natural spring where people go scuba diving and swimming. The water goes down over 70 feet below the surface. The natural spring inside continues to add and shed over 150,000 gallons of water a day which keeps the water somewhat fresh. The water stays between 92 and 95 degrees.




The kids enjoyed swimming next to the exterior cave wall and putting on their goggles to see under the water. It is not cheap ($11 for 45 minutes), but it was worth seeing it and playing in it.
