Hike up Mt. Timpanogos
Labor Day, 2010
Amelene, Dave and I hiked up Timp, along with scores of other hikers, on a gorgeous, sunny, slightly cool Labor Day. We went the Aspen Grove way this time, which gives nice views of the glacial valleys and lakes on the approach to the meadow. There was lower than normal snow pack on the back this year, so we decided to traverse over and maneuver down the snow field. We sat on our heels and glided down a few hundred feet, while seeing lots of variety in the snow surface. The mountain sheep were out in force and not too scared, so they let us get close.
Here is a map
and profile of our trip (only part - batteries ran out!!)
