I like to go outside.
- May 31, 2015
There is a large lake off in the distance, but it's not Utah Lake. And there's a town down at the bottom of the canyon. Like Hobble Creek Canyon, this is pretty close to a very urban area.I feel like I should know this. Like maybe that's West Mountain and Utah Lake in the distance with Buckley Mountain on the right? Or perhaps further south somewhere like looking out of Hobble Creek Canyon. But I can't quite figure out where the picture was taken from. I must be way off! =)
It's in the Oquirrhs! But you're too far north with that guess. Where I'm standing isn't a named peak, but if you can name the main canyon in the photo, or the general destination of the trail I'm on, it's yours.Wow, not the Wasatch! Thought for sure it was up on Bountiful Peak looking towards Antelope Island. Oquirrh's then? Perhaps looking down from Nelson Peak?
That's quite close to where I was standing, and it's so close that any other hints would just be me saying where it is. Haha.Maybe the top of Butterfield Canyon?
Oh on the other sideThat's quite close to where I was standing, and it's so close that any other hints would just be me saying where it is. Haha.
This is looking down Middle Canyon, and you can see just a small bit of Tooele and out toward Grantsville. I was on my way up to Butterfield Peaks, having started at the pass that divides Butterfield Canyon from Middle Canyon.
Take it away, @Perry!
you got it. this is from one of Mt Olympus's summits (I imagine south) during a nasty inversion. luckily the scrambly bit was not too icy, but the steep parts of the trail were horribly icy and I slipped and fell like a dozen times, it was actually pretty awful and I was bruised up for a week or so afterwards. I'll never climb Olympus in winter again w/o crampons.That rocky spine running down reminds me of Grandeur Peak, but I can't really square it up right in my mind because it would have to be an angle of it I've never seen.
