Mount Superior // Little Cottonwood Canyon

The summer of 2017 has been great! I’ve been able to check a lot of the big hikes in the area off of my bucket list. Sometimes, I am so involved in training for running races, or getting out on my bike every free second that it’s hard to get out to hike and explore more trails around the area. Hiking is special, it takes … Continue reading Mount Superior // Little Cottonwood Canyon

Hiking Pfeifferhorn // Lone Peak Wilderness

I am so thankful for friends that motivate me to get out and get hiking! This weekend my friend Jean asked if I wanted to go for a Sunday hike. We decided to leave the dogs behind and summit the Pffeiferhorn which is in Little Cottonwood Canyon, a watershed that doesn’t allow dogs.

Ann’s is an awesome, mellow trail that flows around the mountain from the Potato Hill Trailhead, … Continue reading Vertigo // Mountain Biking in Draper

Quick camping trip // Uinta National Forest

We had a super busy week leading up to the weekend and didn’t have time to plan anything for the weekend. We were going to go to Wendover and gamble, with our friends Megan and Kelly, but decided that we would rather go for a quick overnight in the Uinta National Forest. The Uintas are SO close to Park City. It only takes an hour … Continue reading Quick camping trip // Uinta National Forest
