Logan Canyon has quite a few recreational opportunities. We took advantage of the camping in one of the side canyons up there. Typically when I go camping, I like to avoid camping in established campgrounds. The ones up Logan Canyon were running about $17/night; a bit on the steep side in my opinion. It doesn't make sense to me to pay that much money for a water tap, stinky pit toilets, neighbors, and walls thinner than those of a cheap hotel. I'll go for the dispersed camping anyday!
We found an amazing little campsite, just far enough up a side canyon and far enough off the road that we enjoyed a fair amount of solitude. It was a great little site. I think that's what a scout troop thought too- they drove by several times, slowing down each time to verify that we were still there.
We went for a little walk and found a small pond full of salamanders. Most of them still had their gills, but a few were grown enough that the gills had disappeared. They were a blast to catch. We spent a while catching salamanders, then letting them go.
In the mud on the bank we saw footprints from a large bird that also liked to catch the salamanders. I think it was most likely a sandhill crane that was chowing down on the salamanders. We heard and snuck up on 3 cranes nearby. They flew off pretty quickly, but were back again in the morning.
