The Story

A 6.9 mile hike up into a mountain top lake found in the Salt Lake Valley’s Wasatch mountains. I’ve been on some hikes in my day but this was a steady upward climb for hours on end with frequent breaks. After the first hour you start to question your motives for even doing this and whether or not you’d have no guilt to start following those already on their way back down.

But despite the hike, once we got to the top, it was worth the hike. Actually, it was worth lugging my big DSLR all that way. That doesn’t mean you’ll find me up here on all my free summer weekends, but I would hike this again with someone who didn’t believe me when I said, “It truly was beautiful up there.”
