Eagle Pass Above Y Mountain

Hiking pal Jim Ford is out of town, so Bob took the easy climb past the Y to Eagle Pass Friday afternoon as the sun was setting over Utah Lake.

Adams Canyon - Friday, November 12,2010

A little chilly, but Bob and James made it almost to the falls and almost into the creek! At around freezing, this is a good time of the year to hike. With the leaves gone, one can see more of the rock cliffs. This is a very pleasant hike, just off of US #89 past Farmington. It is only about 3.6 miles roundtrip, a lot easier than last week's climb to the peak of Antelope Island.

50th Anniversary of the BYU Honors Program

Although my first semester at BYU in the Fall of 1960 was a total disaster, I was invited to the 50th anniversary of the Honors Program anyway. After six months active duty at Fort Ord with the U.S. Army Reserves and a two year eight month mission to Argentina for the LDS Church, I enrolled at BYU again in the fall of 1964 and sailed through a BA, MA and earned a PhD at Duke. I sometimes think that all 18 year-old males should be prohibited from going to college for a few years after high school until their brains get organized and their hormones calm down. Bob and Shauna Valentine are right in the middle of the picture. It is hard to miss Bob's huge shiny cranium.

Frary Peak, Antelope Island, Friday, November 5, 2010

Frairy Peak on Antelope Island seen from Adams Canyon near Farmington a week later. Glad we climbed it before the snow storm!

Highly recommended hike, although a little scary at the end when scrambling is required. Antelope Island is a very interesting place, just a few miles off I-15.
