This entry is a great example of why I am writing this blog. I feel like I had written it shortly after leaving SLC 15 months ago (it is now 12/27/15). However, I cannot find that entry, nor can I find all but a few of the pictures I thought I had. Maybe the hike I thought I went on was really somewhere else and I’ll find those pics eventually, but my lack of a great memory for personal events is frustrating.
I had the opportunity to explore the mountains just east of Salt Lake City, after a visit to the Outdoor Retailer trade show. My object of exploration on this day was Big Cottonwood Canyon is the Wasatch Mountains & Wasatch-Cache National Forest just east of Salt Lake.
One hike I know I loved was the Silver Lake & Lake Solitude combo hike originating from the Silver Lake Information Center very close to the Brighton ski area. I have faint memories of chair lifts, gorgeous vistas, and a man playing a very long cylindrical musical instrument, and of the sounds echoing off the mountains. I think that was here, but I seem to be missing those photographs to be sure. Here are the ones I do have (as always click on one to enlarge):
Figures, as soon as I write the above, I found some more photos in my WordPress unattached listing, which makes me think I did in fact write this before and I wonder where the post went.
