...and great to see you posting again! :) Sarah
Thanks Sarah! I thought it might be time to post something new and we obviously needed more bald mountains on SP! :)
Fact - there's another "Bald Mountain" located SE of Deseret Peak
in the Stansbury Mountains, but it was "burned over" by a devastating wildfire in June 2008.
Guess it's TRULY a bald mountain now. Sorry to say ..
The Bald Mountain, 9,203 feet, near Deseret Peak deserves a page. There is a trail that goes near its summit. If you do it as a loop you can hike to Little Bald Mountain and Box Elder Pass. Yep, another place named Box Elder! There are other Bald Mountains. They are in the Deep Creek Range, Wasatch Plateau, and near Ephraim.
In 2010 I didn't see much evidence of any fire. Great peak. http://www.willhiteweb.com/stansbury_mountains/box_elder_canyon/loop_041.htm
Thanks for the info Eric. That looks like a great hike.
Right on, Eric. I think the fire was further to the north, but
could be seen clearly by the good folks of Grantsville.
I plan to visit northern UT (again) in 2013. Great page.
I love the colors. When I hiked it at the end of July, the colors were all green and browns. This was a nice hike close to SLC.
Thank you Dean! I thought I better hike to it before the road closed for the season. It was nice to have the fall colors there too.
