Fathers day trip, what a way to celebrate. Mount Logan is a prominent peak above Cache Valley. It can be reached in a vehicle with four wheel drive from the backside, this is the first time I’ve hiked to it. We took the long route starting just outside Logan city limits. The hike climbs up Logan’s Dry Canyon which is dry of any visible stream but still somehow quite lush. Taylor recommended the camp spot, he refers to it as the Elk Camp. Quite nice really. Good benches, a wonderful view of the city and a genuine piped spring. By that I mean there is a pipe coming directly out of the mountain and you can just drink right out of it. Very nice. Thanks Taylor!

Going back down the mountain was fun!
The next day we packed up and hiked out. We hadn’t seen this very well on the way in due to our late arrival. This is avalanche debris from a huge avalanche during the winter. This debris trail ran for at least a mile or two down the canyon. Under all the broken trees there was still a lot of snow.
