9th Hike for the Boys of Summer 2010 - Desolation Lake

Up Big Cottonwood Canyon to Trailhead. 2.6 miles up Mill D North Fork Canyon to Desolation Lake at 9,232 ft. Up a few more hundred feet to the "spine" on the Great Western Trail that permits a view of Salt Lake Valley to the West and Park City to the East! Breathtaking views. Then down Beartrap Fork, a quiet side canyon about 2.2 miles to the botton of Big Cottonwood, then another 1.6 miles back to the car. The best hike yet!

The Continuing Quest - Tuesday, August 3, 2010

This photo does not do justice to the amazing alpine flowers.
Near the top, we could have hiked down to Brighton ski resort. This is where Big Cottonwood and Little Cottonwood canyons sort of come together.

Bob Valentine and Jim Ford hiked to Sunset Peak in the Albion area today, our fifth hike in the Wasatch Mountains in as many weeks. Today, we climbed like mountain goats to an altitude of about 10,000 feet from a trail head above the Alta ski resort. From the top we could see to Wyoming, the Uintas and the back of Mt. Timpanogas. It is an easy climb and the mountain flowers are beautiful.
