Today we hiked some of the way up Timpanogas Mountain, the second highest mountain in Utah's Wasatch Range, at an elevation of 11,752 ft above sea level. We did about 8 miles return, whereas the full distance to the summit is 15 miles. It’s a very popular trail, and a number of people will either go up there and camp, or climb up in the dark with head lamps, to see the sunrise. We certainly felt like fish swimming upstream with all these people, predominantly university students, coming down! Again there was some beautiful Fall colour, including the beautiful Aspens.
“Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves.” John Muir
