Just Hike It! Exploring the Wasatch
So today for my afternoon workout I decided to go check out a hike up Big Cottonwood Canyon. I had no idea where to go, but just parked at one of the trail heads and started out. It turned out to be an amazing hike!
It started down in the bottom of the canyon and quickly climbed almost 3,000 vertical feet in 2.5 mile to Lake Blanche.
I hiked past ragging rivers full of spring runoff, newly blooming aspen groves, and piles of snow remaining in slide paths from avalanches last winter!
All in all, a greatt little hike and it was only a 15 minute drive from my house in downtown Salt Lake! And to top it all off, two days earlier, in Little Cottonwood Canyon, just over the next ridge from where I was hiking, I skied a foot of fresh powder at Snowbird, on June 12th!!! Utah is a pretty rad place!
