Olympus but no snow  Sucess!

I was told that this was an easy Mount, it was my first of this class, not snow but some ice, fun still!!

Finally  Sucess!

Great hike up the steep trail. Great views of the city lights the whole way, fun scrambling at the top, perfect weather, and some sliding down the icy parts of the trail on the way down. Finally made it up this one after staring at it for so long.

Olympus  Sucess!

My first time up. Low visibility with light flurries and extra cold temps. Glorious.

Rattlers  Sucess!

Main trail in mid summer. Cool on top. Descended off trail unfortunately and passed a few rattlesnakes. Fun time despite the encounter.

Easy walk in the woods!   Sucess!

After a fairly grueling Lone Peak trip, this was over sooner than expected. When we reached the shoulder, I turned to my buddy and asked "is this really it?" I didn't believe it.
Unfortunately, once back to the Jeep, I left my Oregon GPS on the back bumper and drove away. Half an hour later, I returned, but it was long gone. I left my name, number, email and a plea to return it on the startup screen, but I have not gotten a message yet. I guess I shouldn't be surprised, as it was well over $400. Drat.
All the way down, nearly everybody we passed asked the same question, "how much longer to the shoulder?" I gave up estimating and gave the same answer after a dozen.

Once is good  Sucess!

This was a rough steep hike. The saddle is beautiful and the view from the top is only unique to Mt Olympus. Glad I took a lot of pictures cause I wont be going back up again

Mt Olympus Trail  Sucess!

Hiked and scrambled with a friend up Mt. Olympus Trail to the south summit, beautiful summer day. Snow was clear enough to only set foot on it once on the summit itself. Few bugs even with lots of runoff and vegetation. View to the rest of the central Wasatch to the south was striking.

The first summit in my life, I think  Sucess!

Started on a trail not knowing where it went. Somehow got off the trail and climbed the slabs to the summit. Probably not the smartest thing, but hey, kids do dumb things all the time and survive! The challenge of this peak got me hooked on climbing rocks.

Nice Afternoon  Sucess!

Left work at noon and was back to the car before dark. Beautiful view. A little bit of snow up near the top. Nothing major, but it made me take the scrambling section more slowly.

Steep.  Sucess!

Steep, then steeper. It was fun when it was over. Great mountain. Nice assortment of snakes and birds. Scrub oak on side hills about as thick as I've ever seen.

Warm and sunny day w/snow on the summit  Sucess!

Nice steep grade on this 3,5 miles trail with a beautiful view over the Salt Lake City. Gorgeous weather hiking in the t-shirt! Last third of the hike in the snow up to 3 feet still warm enough for the shirt.
