The Stansbury range

and Deseret Peak as seen from the southwest in Skull Valley, not far from Dugway. The snow is from a recent storm that dumped a load the first weekend of October.

Dr. Dean ?

This really sparks nostalgic for
me. Back when I was a boy scout,
we had a weekend outing here.

It looks ... exactly the same.

Re: Dr. Dean ?

I can only envy those lucky ones who get to grow up in this kind of area. Yes, I don't think that area has to worry about urban development or sprawl. I've been really enjoying this part of Utah.

My sentiments exactly !

Yeah. As long as you have a snow shovel around; it can be rather practical. I used to
work at Dugway. I had to drive over that PASS
during the winter. It was very challenging!!!
I had to leave early; but when I did, had to
play DODGE-A-DEER. Then, I ran out of GASOLINE, and a farmer let me use his phone.
HAPPY MEMORIES! Thanks for posting, DEAN!!!

Snow falling downward ... a beautiful THING!

Re: My sentiments exactly !

I've wondered about the people that have to drive that pass in dicey weather. It has a few challenging spots up above the campground and then again as it drops through the narrow slot on the west side. I wonder if you could ever get permission to climb Granite Peak?

Mister Dean ?

Are you referring to the GRANITE PEAK in Utah's Beaver County, just to the east of
Milford, Utah??? That's the only Granite Peak I know about.

I think your topo-map is better than mine.
Mine was made in CHINA. Now... let's not take Granite Peak ... FOR GRANTED. | : )

Re: Mister Dean ?

Nope, the one on the Dugway proving grounds.

How did we ever get

on this subject? How about the Department of the Army - they would probably know. Thanks for the link! Lookout Pass is in the Sheeprocks. Erickson Pass is the one with all
the water. Guess those horses have plenty to drink.

I was not allowed in that area you're referring
to. But, that was back in the early 1980s.
I'm hopeful that things have changed since then. If you talk to a representative of the
DOD, maybe you can get a permit or something.
They used to have some military exercises out
in that direction. I was working at the DUGWAY commisary at that time. Take care, Dean!
