Woah! It has been a while since my last update. This last semester was a killer, but I did spend most of my free time in April skiing, so all was well!
Not too long ago, Koda and I went on a hike in Millcreek Canyon. We ventured up a few miles to the top of Grandeur Peak. The hike was decent, not nearly as fun or pretty as Deseret Peak; however, it was a more enjoyable hike than Mount Aire by a long shot.
It was a fairly steep hike, I think about 1,000 feet in elevation gain per mile. Which means it is about as steep as Mount Olympus next door. We began at Church Fork in Millcreek Canyon and headed straight up at a fairly quick pace. Koda had a blast running through the streams and wondering out to the snow drifts. I cannot wait for the higher elevation snow to melt to get going on some of our more adventurous hikes! I have the Bullion Divide, Mt. Timpanogos, and King’s Peak on my agenda for this summer. I’m hoping that I will have time for some more as well!
I would post the mileage and elevation as part of a trip report, but my RunKeeper app was behaving horribly for this hike, so I will have to forgo it for now.
