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 of Winter.
I found a spot I hadn’t parked at before roughly half way up the canyon. Although I consider this a mid-week walk, it had a pretty good climb of around 20 minutes until I reached the ridge that runs along the South side of the canyon.
The dog is absolutely crazy about the wildlife we see up here, especially deer. At one point, I stopped to see where she was. I couldn’t see her but then a jack rabbit came running towards me, with the dog not far behind. Apparently, the rabbit didn’t see me and came within a few feet. I wish I had a picture of that, but it was over long before I could’ve dug my camera out.
Once I hit the ridge, I walked West for a while before heading back down another small valley. Not much to say. Just a nice day out as we head into the colder months in Salt Lake City
