After pretty good hikes the last two weeks, I had a relatively easy one today up Butterfield Canyon (yet again). The forecast had called for rain and snow today but it was just overcast. The weather actually felt warm compared to what it’s been. That is, until feeling the wind up on the ridge. The […]

Nothing major today. Just took the dog yet again to Butterfield Canyon. Still a fair amount of snow on the ground, although with the “balmy” weather actually rising into the mid-30s lately,  the snow was showing signs of melting. As a result, the snow was a little wetter and heavier than it has been, even […]

I’ve been spending quite a bit of time up Butterfield Canyon this Summer. It’s not too far, it’s free, I can take the dog, and the dog is crazy about all the wildlife up there. So as I wait for enough snow to start snowshoeing the Wasatch mountains, I decided to take one last long hike […]

Today, I decided to redo the same hike I did two weeks ago, but with a few twists. For starters, this time there was nearly a foot of snow on the ground in places. I also decided to take a slightly different route up the main slope, which would involve some steeper slopes. I enjoy […]

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 […]

Beautiful day today. After getting much cooler than average for this time of year, things have warmed up. Although there wasn’t a cloud in the sky, it was the kind of day where you wanted to be in the Sun to keep warm. And I did get a little cold during those parts of the […]

Three weeks ago, I wrote about nearly getting lost in the Oquirrh Mountains. Today, I returned to do the same hike. I planned to do a few things differently from last time.

Well, after my rather long hike last week, I didn’t want to do anything major today but, in fact, I was up around the same area.

I took an unknown route reaching on of the highest peaks in the Oquirrh Mountains. But I got a little “turned around” and ended up coming down the wrong direction.
