    Mount Timpanogos Camp/Summit Aug. 2006

    Alene, April, and Bill had planned a backpacking trip up to the top of Mt Timpanogos over a weekend we did not have Caiden, however I had a football game to coach that Saturday and opted to back out of going with them. I was a little jealous because I had not had a chance to try out our new...

    Big Cottonwood scenic drive to Sundance (Stewart Falls) Oct. 2006

    We took advantage of an actual day of nothing to do (it was a Sunday). We drove up Big Cottonwood Canyon and over guardsman pass down into Heber Valley, then on over to Sundance where we visited some of their booths they had set up for a fall festival, then rode the ski lift up and hiked over to...

    Baker Pass - Wasatch Mountains August 2005

    This is a 6 mile RT hike up behind the backside of Mt Raymond in the Wasatch Mountains. We had originally intended to do the hike up to the top of Gobblers Knob, which is the highest point between Big and Little Cottonwood Canyons, but I was really sick on this hike and just didn't have the...

    Mt Nebo Scenic Loop area camping August 2005

    After having visited this area last month we decided we wanted to do a quick get away back up to camp along the Nebo loop again. We headed on up on Saturday morning and found a campsite relatively close to where we camped last time. As we drove in we saw a LARGE group of camping trailers 1/2...

    Big Springs - Wasatch Mountains July 2005

    On Saturday Alene and I rented two backpacks from the U of U's recreation store for $12.50 total which was a great deal because she's a student there in the MBA program. We packed them up and met Alene's sister April and her husband Bill (along with my new nephew Lanik) and drove up Provo Canyon...

    Lake Blanche June 2005

    This is the first hike Alene and I have done as a married couple. We've been really busy with school and work and took some time to do this nice little day hike up to Lake Blanche. I'm terribly out of hiking shape, having not been much of a hiker before, so I had to adapt. This hike starts at...

    Back up to Willard

    Posted from my blog at wwww.livevicariouslythroughus.blogspot.com On our last visit to Willard, we were driving home and glanced back up at the mountains and realized that we had missed a few locations that probably held rock art. I was quick to say "I'm coming back." I got lucky and two...

    Grandure Peak - Wasatch Mountains September 2006

    We had some time to kill after church and before having to be down at my parents, so Alene suggested hiking Grandeur Peak, which we thought for some reason was only supposed to be around 3 miles round trip, however we found out about 3 miles into the hike, that it was 3+ miles one way, so over 6...

    Willard Rock Art

    Got an invitation from uintahiker to go and check out some rock art above Willard. It was great weather and we ended up finding about 5 alcoves with rock art in them. A lot of the art is faded beyond recognition but there are still some that are recognizable. Some pics... Smoke stained...

    Maple Canyon June 2007

    Alene and I knew we needed to get away for at least two of the 5 weekends this month of June (5 weekends??), so we had our sights set on somewhere in the Uintas (Clyde Lake trail), but we got a ton of rain in the valley last week, which meant two things: We found a leak in our new roof, and...

    Little Cottonwood Canyon hiking: Catherine Pass to Grizzly Gulch July 2007

    This was a great hike and one I'd suggest to anyone. We went up Little Cottonwood Canyon all the way to the Alta ski resort and parked a little past the fire station. From there we rode a shuttle bus up another 2.5 miles on a dirt road to the Catherine Pass trail head and proceeded with our 6+...

    Wellsvilles via Stewart Pass

    7-05-2008 A buddy and I decided to hike the Wellsvilles over the July 4th weekend. We chose to hike the Stewart Pass/Cold Water trail. This would be my first time hiking this trail. The trail is about 3 miles and climbs 2500'. I met my friend at his house in Hyrum around 6am where we jumped...

    Deep Canyon - Wellsville Mtns

    There are 3 main trails for climbing the Wellsvilles from the east side. Deep Canyon, Cold Water/Stewart Pass, and Rattlesnake. The Deep Canyon trail begins just west of Mendon. It is 3 miles from the trail head to the ridge and 2700'. Most people rate it strenuous and I would have to agree...

    City Creek hiking: Bailey's first hike Sept. 2008

    (Note the date on this; our little girl is now 3.5 years old now and loves to hike/camp) We decided to ditch church today and go for a hike. We've been so busy, we needed a break to just do something together at our own pace instead of everyone else's. Today we just did a short little hike...

    Silver Lake July 2009

    On Friday I took the day off from work to do a hike with the family and Alene's sister, April, and her kids. We ended up hiking up to Silver Lake. Now, I know there a million Silver Lakes in Utah, so to avoid any confusion, this one is located up American Fork canyon. You start off by making...

    Farmington Canyon September 2009

    Alene and I were hoping for a big hike on Labor day, but we failed to plan on finding a baby sitter (which would have been hard anyway) and since Alene is taking this weekend to do a backpacking trip with her sister April, we decided to do a smaller hike with Bailey (Caiden was at his mom's)...

    Stewart Falls August 2010

    (This is a TR written by my wife about a hike our family did to Stewart Falls. She's posts occasional TR's for us on our outdoor blog) Sometimes I'm a nature snob. I'll start thinking that popular places to hike are overrated or only for those not willing to venture out further into lesser...

Maybird Gulch is accessed from the White Pine trailhead and is the next gulch over from Red Pine Gulch which...
