|Union Pacific & Weber River - Weber Canyon, Utah|
The rest area is right off the I-84 freeway. You pull in and automobile parking is on the right side--there's plenty of it. There are several picnic tables, some of which are covered. There's also a small grassy field. The Weber River is calm thanks to a small dam that's just downstream.
This is a scenic stop. The mountains are tall. There are trees and, in the spring, wildflowers. A river runs through it. But, for our kids, these aren't the reasons why they like this place.
|Joy & Jon Train Watching - Weber Canyon, Utah|
We were fortunate to see two trains in about 10 minutes when we went. They sounded their horns for the kids (which scared our two-year-old a little, but the other two thought it was great).
If your kids love trains (and what kid doesn't love trains?), then the I-84 rest stop in Weber Canyon is one of the best places to see them in action. Bring a picnic and enjoy the scenery as you wait for a freight train to rumble by.
