Early Light on Cascade Saddle Trail

What are the chances? There are hundreds and hundreds of trails within 30 minutes of my house. It was Sunday morning after 8am, which in Utah, you barely see anyone. And I run into the same people riding their horses. Go figure.

Primrose Overlook

Sometimes being in the wrong place works out fine. My hike today was an example of that.

Johnson’s Hole or Bowl?

I completed my longest hike of the year today - 12.2 miles. My previous best was 8 miles. The purpose of today's hike was distance, not climbing. I can proudly say - MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!

Mountain Bikers for Shore(line)

This time I went much deeper into the trail. By so doing, I found one of its greatest treasures - lots of mountain biking trails and lots of mountain bikers riding.

Lighting the Valley

While hiking this morning on the west side of Big Baldy, I looked out into the valley and saw a splash of light from the rising sun. It dawned on me, pun intended, that the light was funneling through the canyon almost like what a flashlight would do.

Bounteous Dusk

Tonight I had finished dinner and cleaning up the kitchen and saw that there was still daylight out. On top of that, Ann was heading up to do homework. So I made, what turned out to be a terrific decision, to grab my gear and head out to the Squaw Peak road and try to grab some last light pix.
