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!

We went up South Willow and then down Pockets Fork. It was greener than I expected. I went with Rocky Alps.

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.

Deseret + 2 more  Sucess!

Rode my bike up the 2 miles of gated road at 4:30 a.m. Arrived at the summit a few hours later. Very cool place. Continued north and climbed peak 10,685 and peak 10,521. Fire and washouts pushed this climb back 3 years for me! Every time I was about to head out to the Stansburys, mother nature through something at that road. I gave up and just biked it in.

Loop Hike  Sucess!

Road is still washed out 2 miles short of trailhead. South Willow was well maintained, consistent in grade and enjoyable. The upper half of the north ridge return was difficult. The trail is not easily discernable and is steep. Still some small snow banks on both trails.
