runbyu1Birthday Run  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 9, 2014


Brit and I ran up for my birthday. We saw a moose close to the trail on the way up and got some great pictures. I ran pretty hard on quite a few portions on the way up. It was hot and Brita unfortunately had a combination of dehydration and altitude sickness hit her. It was slow going on the way down. Still a great experience and a great view from the top.

eamhatchFirst Summit in Years  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 4, 2013


Ammon Hatch and I took Catherine's Pass to Sunset. This was the first summit I climbed since I was in high school. It was glorious, and it toughened me up for Lone Peak a couple of weeks later.

utahguy058Afternoon Delight  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 12, 2013


This was a tasty treat! The views were amazing. I'm looking at you Princess Timpanogas, Your curves be looking so sexy! RAWR! This truly was a gorgeous hike. It wasn't too difficult at all. We planned on doing Wolverine, but a storm came in and rained on the parade. As Garth Brooks once said... and the thunder rolls!

Pssssst - you spelled the name of your beloved mountain wrong. It's Timpanogos. We should just blame your phone again, yes?

Apparently they embarrass Norwegian princes. This is probably (definitely) a better afternoon option than CrossFit, though. Much prettier than a bunch of sweaty dudes doing burpees, too.

Some friends and I did this peak in about an hour and a half...for the time commitment it was well worth it. The meadows and lakes are beautiful and the views are exquisite. I highly recommend this hike.

Went with my pal, Vimal, around 4 pm after I got off early from residency that day. Loud thunder and lightning on the way down so we handle do a 3rd class scrambling down a gully and run across a field to a cabin. Crazy fun times!

Ran it while a friend waited and then we hit Wolverine together. Good views of Park City. Not a remarkable peak but one to grab while out on a hike of the area.

leslie78My first official peak  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 12, 2011


Sunset peak was the first official peak I ever climbed! I had just met my now husband days before. I guess you could call this our first "date." It was pretty awesome. Our then 15, 14, 6, and 2 year old's went with us. Excellent hike, with excellent views. Looking back after the hikes I've been on since, this was a pretty easy one, still incredible though. Plus, it was cool to climb our first peaks ever together (Kanyon (6) and I)

Rocky AlpsFun, scenic little hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 9, 2012

Rocky Alps

We've been up to Catherine Pass from both the Brighton and Alta sides, and I think the Brighton Lakes Trail is the more scenic way. This time we took the shorter approach from Albion Basin, and I jogged to the top while the family ate some snacks and watched the sunset from Catherine Pass. We saw the same two bull moose, along with a cow and calf, that we saw just a few days earlier from the other side, which was cool.

Still lots of snow and very windy. Started on Mary's Lake TH and continued past Dog Lake to the top of the Crest lift. I took the Pioneer Ridge/Brigton Ridge and hit Pioneer, Sunset, Tuscarora, Wolverine, and Millicent in 4.5 hrs. Pretty good adventure!
