I too moved here from Boston.
I don't think you got a good view of the entire Great Salt Lake from Box Elder. I've never before heard it described as "a few shallow ponds". It's about 75 miles long.
Thanks for the welcome! Boston or Pittsburgh, it's definitely a culture shock.
I realized that too about the Salt Lake...definitely a lot bigger and more prominent when I viewed it atop Stansbury Island HP a few weeks later
Judy, you are from Boston?
Those are some obscure peaks. Why did you choose those rather than others?
I'm originally from Pittsburgh but lived in the Boston area for 7 years before moving here.
I rather like obscure peaks, especially the prominent ones. But these were pretty easy ones for this season, I guess, and Box Elder I saw on the highway and decided spur of the moment to climb it...and the Oquirrhs I see from the Bench every day in the distance. Lots of stuff to choose from around here though
for your first peaks in Utah. We have plenty of things to climb around here. Welcome!
Thanks! I see mountains everywhere tempting me to climb!
Loved your TR. Sacha has a plan cooking for some Nevada peaks this spring. Stay tuned.
Thanks! Keep me updated!
I was just up in that area (Brigham City) over Thanksgiving holiday. Man what a beautiful state it is!! Great shots and story, maybe next time on that Powerball
Thanks! It is beautiful, and that area I feel like has a lot less of the sprawlish feeling you see in greater SLC.
Enjoyed your TR. I'm from Boston (Cambridge) as well. Moved here 60 years ago. My parents both in their 90s still rave about the mountains, glad they picked this place, it's special.
Thanks! It's a huge difference...the city is a lot less charming to walk in compared to Boston and Cambridge, but the mountains much more so
