Hah ...... 14 inches snow last 2 days
Yay ....... another State Street river....Man it is coming down heavy again today in SLC. I've already been out to shovel once. I really want it to warm up to average (58 F), or else it's going to go from fifty one day to eighty the next and were going to have some serious flooding.
Thought you guys just got 20 inches of snow........
Now I'm craving oranges.
Quite a nice view is had from the Scat-Deck no doubt.Scat house on the left, with Mount Olympus in the distance to the southeast.

Is something wrapped up in a tarp on your roof? Is that where you keep your extra cameras when they are not being used?
Today's walk found evidence that things are starting to grow.
I believe this one is a Virginia Spring-Beauty.

There is an area near the old homestead that holds an impressive amount of naturalized Grape Hyacinth this time of year. To get there I took a trail that @Bob and @scatman would be proud of.

It is difficult to capture the visual effect in photos, but I try anyway.

Heading back home as the sun sets. Still testing out the water bottle pocket as a camera holder on my left hip. The capture clip did not agree with my clavicle last year, so this is looking like a good alternative for 2023.

This weekend the sky was overcast and the trail was short, but the company was good. Took my oldest son on a quick hike up to Mallory Cave from the NCAR trailhead.
On our way!

Too wet and icy for little legs to make it up the last 100 feet (the route is the crack he is sitting in), but we'll be back when it's a bit drier.

I did run up to the top real quick while he enjoyed some gummy worms. The cave itself is (rightly) closed year to protect the population of Townsend's big-eared bat that calls it home.

The view from outside the cave isn't half bad either.

He insisted on taking a picture of me - only fair, since I take a million of him.

Stopped for a sandwich on the way home and then Passover brisket for dinner. Not a half bad day. Any time I get to be outdoors with my boys is an absolute win - and he's excited about coming back to do the final push w/ little brother.
Deer use it to ascend the hill. It is likely other woodland creatures utilize it too. . . myself included as of yesterday.What's the history of that trail?
