Butterfield Peaks  Sucess!

Hiked from the pass in Butterfield Canyon. Continued on to White Pine Peak, Kelsey Peak, Rocky Peak, and Lowe Peak. Very long day, roundtrip was 15.8 miles and 6,600+ ft elevation gain. Very relieved that there were trails undercutting Kelsey Peak and White Pine Peak, intersecting their adjacent saddles. That probably saved me close to a 1000 feet on the way back. Awesome hike, though. Not another person out there.

Keep going to Kelsey!!  Sucess!

I made a mistake approaching this peak. Instead of taking the west most trail, I took the east most trail from the pass. I went up a gully that looked like it was a trail and got the ridge. This actually seemed a lot shorter than the trail you were supposed to take. I hit the summit and was greeted with smokey views. I found the view of the southern Oquirrhs spectacular from here. I hit the ridge west and continued on to Kelsey. I saw a hiker coming off of Butterfield Peaks as I was hitting summit. I didn't expect to run into people up there.

Butterfield Peaks  Sucess!

After visiting family, Kim, my dad, and I hiked up Butterfield Peaks in the Oquirrh Mountains. I had not climbed any peaks in the Oquirrh Mountains since climbing Lowe Peak on May 11 1996. We didn't bring a map or information, so we got on the wrong trail for a short distance, but we found the right trail and hiked to the summit rather quickly.

Once on the summit we hiked towards White Pine and Kelsey Peaks, but we didn't make it all the way to the summit of those peaks since we ran out of time. It was a great hike.

The long way  Sucess!

Tried to do it yesterday but discovered that the Butterfield Canyon road was closed. Came up with a new plan for today and started at Yellow Fork Canyon County Park. Also did Breccia Knob and Sheep Ridge. Breccia Knob was sort of on the way, but Sheep Ridge was painful. Beautiful day and no one else around.

HOMM 1/2 marathon

The Homm half went over these summits and then down the 4X4 road all the way to Herriman. Great views up there.

Easy Evening  Sucess!

I was surprised at how well groomed the trail is. I hiked past the high peak to try to find the large cairn that was mentioned. It has either fallen over or has been knocked over. It is only about 1-2 feet tall now. =(

Hiking over to White Pine / Kelsey looks like a lot of fun. Will have to come back earlier in the day.

Hiked again on 9/13/2014

Short & Sweet  Sucess!

Hiked to the top with my 5-year old son. I had to pick him up and carry him across some snow near the end, but other than that it was an easy hike. Nice views of snow-covered Lowe Peak to the south.

Butterfield Peaks  Sucess!

Hiked from the pass. It was a hot day and this is probably why no one else was around. Good view of the Oquirrh Mountains and not much snow left on the high peaks.

Golden memories...  Sucess!

Geez, I remember climbing them as a kid growing up in Tooele.

Me and the neighbor kid rode our bikes up Middle Canyon to the pass. We came across a 4X4 who was stuck alongside the road.

After helping the dude out, we continued up to the peaks.
I remember seeing a very huge "termite mound" just below the
main summit. Yeah, the views were incredible.

On way to Kelsey  Sucess!

One of the easiest Oquirrh Mountains you can do, everyone should check out this vantage point.
