Autumn in Emigration  Sucess!

Hiked up from Affleck Park Campground. Beautiful views of the snowcapped Central Wasatch to the south. Perfect 3.5 hour hike.

Snow was nice and hard up to Lookout Peak early in the morning. Good views to Grandview with a helicopter flying back and forth in the distance.

So many false summits  Sucess!

I love a decently long hike and Lookout did not disappoint. The false summits were heartbreakers though. I read a story to my friend at the summit and enjoyed a pumpkin spice bagel. Much joy and gladness.

Aspen are going off!  Sucess!

Fun, mellow hike. Lots of horny toads, lots of senescing aspen, lots of hunters, a couple of deer, and a snake! Gorgeous views from the summit.

Big Mountain / Lookout Peak loop

I ran a 16 mile, ~3500' loop over Big Mountain and Lookout Peak, based on this mountain biking route, starting and ending at the Pioneer Trail parking area. The trail did not quite go to the very summit of either, and somehow I didn't have it in me to take detours (except by accident), so I don't know how much this counts as peakbagging, but it counts as taking a good beating and as excellent solitude with incredible views. It took me 4 hours to complete, part of which was spent waiting for my friend on a mountain bike who got behind because the climb up Big Mountain is pretty brutal for a bike, then broke his derailleur, got lost, coasted down City Creek Canyon, ended up at my residence, and had to drive my car back up to get me and his car at the trailhead. Kind of a crazy day.

Gret fall Color Hike  Sucess!

Various routes and climbs, about a dozen total. probably my favorite trip was a ski tour, we started up the Mountain dell road from the closure at Little dell, gained the ridge at via Afleck Park then skied up the main trail. The Descent was via City Creek Canyon, skied a few laps off the north face and then a great cruise nearly to the mouth of the canyon. Long day!!

Nice Hike  Sucess!

Very nice hike. Beautiful day with lots of flowers. I remember one section where I had to run from the bugs in the slippery mud.

Fall is here  Sucess!

Started at Affleck Park, then continued to Grandview Peak an dback via the Wasatch 100 route that skirts the NE slopes of Lookout. Note: When starting at Affleck Park you can start at campground #6, but must quickly cross a bridge and turn left followed a few hundred yards later by another bridge...this actually puts you in a different part of the campground, an area also accessible by cars, but the trail is lush and beautiful and worth the extra hike. The actual trail starts at the red gate and is refered to as Burnt Flats on a nearby map.

Unique View of Salt Lake

Very pleasant hike, with views of Red Butte, Emigration, and City Creek canyons. Also view of Salt Lake Valley and Lake much different than those from more southern Wasatch area. Started hike from Affleck park.

Route Climbed: Affleck Park Date Climbed: May 21, 2006  Sucess!

This is a nice climb to do in spring. It was a beautiful and warm day but very windy on the ridge. The view was great and I could see the Uinta Mountains off in the distance and many of the peaks to the north. There was still lots of snow on Grandview Peak. I had been to this area before. Last year I saw a baby moose that was only 1-2 weeks old. This year I saw two rattlesnakes on the trail.
