Walked up with family and some extended family who were out on a visit. Easy walk up. Lots of bugs and we all got swarmed on the summit, so could not stay long.
Saw some evidence of a wildfire that had taken place a week or so prior. Sage brush in a boulder field was burn, but did not spread due to be isolated by the boulders.
Part of a day of hiking, swimming and picnics.
Nice getaway for sunset during a brief visit to SLC.
It has been extraordinarily warm this winter so I took the family to Antelope Island for a picnic. I did a quick run to the top of this peak. It's not much of a hike but the view is really great!
After spending the night camping by the beach on Antelope Island, I hiked up to Buffalo point with my daughter. She made it to the observation area on her own, and then I carried her up, down, and back to our campsite on my shoulders.
We saw bison on the way up, as well as some birds we didn't recognize (grouse, maybe?). The view from the summit is amazing.
10/30/2013 We stopped and hiked up Buffalo Point first upon entering on to Antelope Island. Very short, easy hike. Continued onto do Frary Peak, as well as Dooly Knob and Stringham Peak.
I love this place. Buffalo Point is our family hang out. Climbed it so many times from all directions, that I can't even count.Great place for kids too!
Hiked the Lakeside Trail and Buffalo Point on a cloudy and windy day.
Climbed the Scenic Route in February ---Cold, but no crowds or bugs!
