harborRe: Twice


Most of the dead trees up there are from 2 different fires in the last 10 years as I understand it. At least on the ridge N of the trailhead and N of the saddle above Mill Fork.

Beautiful night under a quarter moon. Windy and cold at the summit, no surprise.

Did the loop around. The valleys on the descent were amazingly lush and green and the whole mountain was covered in wildflowers. Really fantastic hike.

Date Climbed: Jun 30, 2012


and down Mill Fork. Very beautiful. In my opinion this is the way to do it. Mill fork seemed pretty bland compared to the Pocket's fork side. Great day. Great hike. So many great flowers to enjoy and photograph. (Also 9th Utah COHP).

2nd - Aug 2, 2013 up and down Mill Fork.
3rd - July 19, 2014 - up and down Mill Fork. Checked out several arete's up near the top for bristlecone pine with no luck.
4th - Aug 9, 2014 - up and down Mill Fork w/ some students from GHS.
5th - Aug 1, 2015 - Up Pocket down Mill. Wonderful hike as always.
6th - Aug, 29, 2015 - Up/Down Mill - full moon hike with 2:30 am start. Made it to the top for sunrise. Gorgeous morning but very windy on top. I took a new summit register and ammo box for it. The old log canister was way to small for such a popular peak.

Date Climbed: Jun 22, 2012


made a quick hike up this after driving down from Boise. Haze of Salt Lake City ruined views of the Wasatch. I did the loop hike which was not as ideal for trail running as returning down the South Willow trail

After an "austere bivouac" on my sister's floor in Eagle Mountain my brother and I punched this one out and were back in time for lunch. This was my first mountain outside the Pacific Northwest; I was charmed.

I'd wanted to hike Deseret Peak for the last three years, and finally had my chance, and I wasn't disappointed. Great hike, great weather, amazing views!

What a great day! Deseret was surprisingly easy for an ultra-prominence peak. Also did North and South Willow Peaks. Once again, awesome place!

Ender's Shadow helped me to climb this guy. It's a very pretty mountain and I highly recommend making the trip up it. Surprising to see this in the desert. Thanks Deseret Peak!

We went up South Willow and then down Pockets Fork. It was greener than I expected. I went with Rocky Alps.

Up South Willow Canyon, down Pocketts Fork with Stephen. Nice change of pace from the Wasatch. Saw very few people, which is always nice.

I was quite impressed with the amount of water in the Stansburys (this was one of my first Great Basin mountain range hikes). The wildflowers were striking and abundant, a perfect frame for the rugged north face of the peak itself. Beautiful.

Hiked from flooding closure at Medina TH. Storm rolling in from south made me bail from the saddle.

This was my second trip up Deseret. This hike was uneventful and we made it up in time for the sunrise.
