I grew up in the shadow of the Wasatch mountains, and was just amazed at their beauty. I moved away from Utah for a little while, and had to make my way back here, because it's just too beautiful here. I absolutely love Utah and encourage all to enjoy the beauty of these mountains, and to practice "leave no trace", so that all may enjoy it's beauty.
When I first moved to Utah I could not pick out one mountain from another and the idea of climbing them was unthinkable, and now I hardly notice them because I've been atop many. Lots of memories, and its too bad more people don't appreciate them and put the peaks to use. Though many do.
