Up Pocket Fork  Sucess!

1st -Jun 30, 2012 - Up Pocket Fork 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 canister was way to small for such a popular peak.
7th - Jul, 26 2016 - Up Mill down Pocket - Hiked up for sunset on the peak with my wife to celebrate her birthday. Happy Day sweetheart!
8th - Aug 12/13 2017- Hiked up starting at 9:00 with a few members of the Tooele County Hiking Club facebook group to bring up a new register. The old one had disappeared a few days prior. We also had hopes of seeing the Perseid meteor shower. We spent about an hour up top with clouds directly above us the entire time. Lightning was striking in every direction in small clusters in all of the distant mountain ranges but the one we were on. It was so cool to see the lightning from above out across the salt lake over by bountiful, Stansbury Island, and south and west of us. We hiked back down to the saddle and the clouds cleared for a bit and we got to see a few really good meteors before heading back down. My first time doing a hike to a major peak completely in the dark the entire hike.
9th - June 9, 2018 Hiked up with some students and a fellow teacher. Register still in good shape.

pleasant hike  Sucess!

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

Nice Mountain  Sucess!

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.

Great day for Deseret  Sucess!

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!

Wonderful Area!  Sucess!

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

Yep...took longer to Drive to it than climb it...  Sucess!

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!

Deseret  Sucess!

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

Wildflower paradise  Sucess!

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.

Stormed Off

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

Second Summit  Sucess!

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

To Ski the Twin Couloirs  Sucess!

This is a beautiful summit in a beautiful area. It's a great example of how we can reclaim old mining areas and turn them into spectacular wilderness. I'm hoping to go back and ski here this Spring.

Ridge Tour  Sucess!

Went up the South Willow Trail and then down the Pockets Fork trail, went up the two unnamed 10er points to the north on the way back down (PT 10685, PT 10521). Great views all around, glad to have a clear day for this one.
