GARDEN CITY — While Utahns have been exploring the state this summer, some have noticed unusually high water levels at a favorite vacation destination: Bear Lake.

Using drone footage, Utahn Justin McFarland captured just how much a difference one year makes when it comes to the lake's high-water mark. The video compares aerial footage from 2016 to footage captured just this past weekend, and the results are pretty remarkable to watch.

In addition to that video, we also received several reader-submitted photos of news happening throughout the state. From wildfires and flooding to sunsets and Pioneer Day celebrations, browse the gallery below to see what your fellow Utahns have been up to.
