Today, I again decided to take the dog walking up Butterfield and allow her to chase the deer and other animals up here. For the first time in a while, portions of the mountains contained white patches of snow. It wasn’t deep enough to require snowshoes or anything like that, but definitely had the feel […]

Very short hike today after doing a longer one last week. I hiked up Mount Van Cott from behind the University of Utah. Now that it’s October, I was hoping for a bit cooler weather for me and my dog.
