Gobblers  Sucess!

We hiked over to this summit after hiking Mt. Raymond. It was very green. There is a nice trail from the saddle to the summit.

Butler Fork  Sucess!

Hiked Circle All Peak, Mount Raymond, and Gobblers Knob from Butler Fork with David. The aspen groves on the way up were some of the nicest I've seen, and the views at each summit were great as well (especially looking south towards Cottonwood Ridge). Mount Raymond was probably the coolest of the three (a couple easy short scrambling moves needed near the top). See "Everybody Loves Raymond" trip report for details.

From Mill Creek  Sucess!

One of my first Utah peaks and a great day, though I learned a lesson about footwear. Desert hiking shoes do not cut it in the mountains. I had a scree rock knock my foot and had to limp down. Charming views and it was vibrantly shockingly green with wildflowers near the summit. I suggest for that reason going in June or July.

Grouse Peak  Sucess!

Got scared by a grouse. Heard a rockfall on way up. Saw sun set over GSLake & Cottonwood Ridge. Great success

False summits! :)

First Ascent: It's been two years since I hiked this one - looking forward to hitting it again this year. What I remember most was running into what seemed like 5 or 6 false summits before getting to the genuine article. Great hike!

utahjimk  Sucess!

5 Dec 2014: latest in the year I've ever hiked it (on snowshoes) - spring-like day with stable old snow.

Twice in July 2011  Sucess!

July 8: Alexander Basin. Tons of snow left. Had snowfield all to self. Could have used crampons, but step-kicking worked. Excellent glissades back down into the valley. THIS is the way to climb this mountain. Best 5.2 miles I've had in SLC area thus far. Lots of fun for a short climb.

July 6: Butler Fork. Besides the wonderful trail, wildflowers, and great views of Twin Peaks, I most enjoyed surveying the tremendous avalanche damage in Mill A Basin. Plenty of snow still left in the chutes and every aspen near the chutes was bent over at a 45-degree angle if not broken outright.

A weak name but a strong summit  Sucess!

Went up with my buddy Eric, his wife Debbie, and our dogs Taz and Stitch. Steep from the start but a fun hike. 3" of snow after Alexander Basin and all the mud and rock to make you feel like a pro. Good hike

A walk in the clouds  Sucess!

Came up from Alexander Basin. Two to three inches of snow in the rocks at the top of the basin. Cloudy and cold on top. Went down the west ridge to Baker Pass, then down Bowman, taking the cut off back over to Alexander TH.
