Closest to home  Sucess!

I think this was my first Utah county high point. My wife and I drove up with our two-year-old and three-month-old sons. http://udink.org/2003/09/14/monument-peak/

Monumental Undertaking  Sucess!

After Nebo and North Peak the day before, decided an easy nice day out was in order. Did some kayaking on Scofield and then went and parked at the turn off and walked the final bit to the top of this high point. The back of the Wasatch Plateau was looking gorgeous with the snow and green! Thanks for a monumental view!

Drive up  Sucess!

Drove to the top, but did some amount of hiking while climbing neighboring small peaks, 8215, 9767, 9777, 10040, Trough Springs Ridge, and 10185. Lots and lots and lots of hunters around even though it was a Wednesday.

Homage to the Mountain  Sucess!

A twenty dollar bill wrangled its way out of my pocket up there. If you happen to find it, you're welcome.

via road  Sucess!

I drove to the top of this one after hiking up East Mountain (Emery Cohp) earlier in the afternoon after driving up from Vegas. When I topped out, the sun had been down about 20 minutes and the profile of the Southern Wasatch highlighted by the purple/orange sunset glow in the sky was just beautiful.

From Electric Lake  Sucess!

Hiked up old 4x4 roads and then cut cross country to make this a 4 hour outing. Descended another ridge and slide down on the quickly accumulating north side snow. Unique views of the La Sals, Tushars, Wasatch and Uintas.

Drive up  Sucess!

4th Ut COHP. Nice drive from Provo through Fairfield canyon and up to the summit. Drove back through Scofield. Nice end summer afternoon/evening loop. I bet it's even more gorgeous in the fall. So many aspen stands. Will have to go back in October.

Watch out for the sheep  Sucess!

Drove to the top, beautiful view at sunset. The most eventful part of the trip: excessive amounts of sheep droppings that flew up from the dirt road as I passed over on the way to the summit. An unpleasant car wash followed.

Skyline Drive  Sucess!

Tried to make this one a little bit of hike, but was thwarted by private property signs around Electric Lake. Instead I parked 1/2 a mile away on the Skyline Drive, got about 450 vertical feet out of it, a little better than just parking at the radio towers. At least this way I was able to also climb PT 10040 off the road.

So Easy  Sucess!

We forced ourselves to get out 0.25 mile from the summit so we could actually "hike" this one. Road conditions were perfect as well as the weather

Scenic mountaintop  Sucess!

Beautiful sunset views all around from up here. The road was in good shape, no gates or any other obstacles. The mileage for the junction is correct at ~ 5.2 and it's then < 3 to the summit. Look for the sharp left turn up to the radio tower; ~ 16 miles roundtrip after leaving hwy. 264.

Should be called the 'drivers log'  Sucess!

Stopped by and bagged this peak on our way to a geocaching event up on the skyline drive. Great views and was glad my kids could come along.
