Beautiful day  Sucess!

Hiked it via Alexander Basin with my wife. There were quite a few people on the trail, including a group of about 15 ~60 year-olds. We passed them, but several of them ended up passing us and beating us to the top. Those guys could climb!
A great day. Steep. Beautiful. Just a little patch of snow left in Alexander Basin.

Butler Fork  Sucess!

Climbed via Butler Fork with my wife and the Wasatch Mountain Club. Beautiful ascent! The section from the saddle to the summit really gets the heart pumping! Great day in the mountains. Perfect weather!

Trail Runner Magic  Sucess!

I had been spending too much time on the bike commute to work eyeballing snowpack conditions on the western face of Gobbler's Knob between Baker Spring and Baker Pass and finally decided to take a chance when the green to white ratio was skewed more heavily in favor of green.

Ascended via Bowman's Fork trail and descended the same route via nice boot-ski short cut that connected the summit to the carpet soft trail.

Wish I had descended via Alexander Basin, as the snow looked fun and the trail looked empty.

Many Ascent  Sucess!

Many ascents of Gobblers Knob. Last time, trail run via Bowman's Fork, making Gobblers Knob before making way to Mount Raymond.

Alexander Basin is a far more interesting (albeit steeper/shorter) approach. Interesting limestone and shale/aggregate formations on display.

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.

Nice Hike  Sucess!

Large snow drifts on the ridge before the summit made for a entertaining hike!

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!

at least once a year I hike it.
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.
