Took yet another hike to Dog Lake today. The leaves are starting to turn to their Fall colors and the weather is starting to cool. It won’t be long before the upper Mill Creek Canyon is closed. As usual, parking was scarce on a Saturday afternoon. Most people will park at one of the lower […]

Although I’ve been hiking as much as ever recently, my schedule has been a bit more hectic. And I seem to be doing more and smaller hikes. And I haven’t been blogging about them all due to time constraints and the fact that I’ve already blogged about many of these hikes. Today, I took a […]

Last night I took  a quick evening hike up to Dog Lake (Mill Creek Canyon). It was great to have a bit cooler temperatures. I didn’t want anything too major today and decided to head up again to Butterfield Canyon. This is a hike I’ve done several times before but never as far as I […]

Last week, I hiked yet again to Dog Lake. I didn’t bother to blob about it because I’ve blogged so much about this hike lately. I also took a few nice hikes during the week but didn’t blog about those either. So, today, I’m back at it. Although it’s getting cooler, I’m still limited which […]

As we get well into August, I’ve been looking for ways to beat the heat. One way is to hike around water. However, there just aren’t that many places to hike around water within Salt Lake County, especially if you are taking dogs. So I decided to take a rare drive up to the Uinta Mountains, […]

The weather forecast for today called for temperatures in the upper 90s. Since my dog has trouble handling the heat, I decided today to hike again to Dog Lake. Unfortunately, there aren’t a whole lot of lakes one can hike to with a dog in this area. I hiked to Dog Lake last week, and […]

Hiking these past few weeks has just been too hot for my dog so I went back to hike Little Water Peak again (via Mill Creek Canyon) so that we could stop at Dog Lake and cool down. Or, at least the dog could! We drove to the very end of Mill Creek Canyon road […]

And I took yet another hike up to the Butterfield Peaks today. I’ve been spending a lot of time up here lately, experimenting with various routes up these hills. I don’t necessarily recommend this particular route. It was very steep with no good trail. Much of this hike was spent pulling myself up by grabbing […]

Headed up to Butterfield Peaks again, in the same area I hiked last week. I actually did another Butterfield Canyon hike yesterday. I didn’t take my camera or GPS and so I didn’t write a blog for that hike. Yesterday’s hike wasn’t very long but I climbed for about an hour. Because of that, I […]

Now that the gates have been opening in some of my favorite canyons, I suddenly have a number of new options for my weekly hike. Today, I headed up Butterfield and hiked to the Butterfield Peaks. I drove up the canyon to the point where is starts down on the Tooele side and parked there. There […]
