HAppy fourth of July! Let freedon ring.. or run in this instance. Decided to try and summit Ben Lomond this morning. Talked HD and Gdoc into joing me for a 4 AM departure from North Fork. This trail is one of the best. Kind of an unknown jem. It's a serious grinder up to the saddle and then up to the peak, but the views and trail are worth it. Moose sighting but no Mtn goats today.

Here's a taste.

Vert around 4300

Decided to try the legs out a bit, drove over to the North Arm TH. Matt had just pulled in too. Good times. Ran into the Weber High CC team on the way back. Legs feeling pretty good from the Lomond grinder. Peace.

Early outing with Matt up from wind surfer to Rocky Point. Ran into Shane and Dave at the top and headed down with them. Trail getting a bit dusty.. Good climb though..

Sweet Grinder up to Mt. Ogden Peak from Snowbasin with Rob and Matt. At the top of Wildcat we choose the left trail (should'a taken the right one) - This led us up to Needles lodge with no way to get to the trail to Mt. Ogden, so we decided to make the trek up to the ridge line and traverse north to the Mt. Ogden climb. Great decision - awesome views etc. This takes you from Allen peak to Mt. Ogden. Matt made it up to the traverse, but had to go after that. Rob and I made it to the peak.. Great way to start the morning.

Very late impromptu Early morning James Peak outting with HairDog. Needed to be on top of the peak by 6:00 AM before any of the runners from the Skyline 50 Miler got there. The race was offering $100 to the first person to get to the top of the peak and finish the race. Seth was the first one up. Extremely Nice guy. It's a tough climb at the 5 Mile mark of the race. 

Sunrise was epic..Views steller.

Morning cruise up Wheelers 5+ loop with J, T and T. Good times. Legs a bit heavy from the prior week. Good to get back on the trail.

Epic run up Mt. Timpanogos Peak. Talked Gdoc and Rob into getting up at an insane hour and starting this run from the Timpooneke trail head. This was the first time up to the peak for all of us. The trail turned out to be better than I imagined it would be. Steller views and Epic vistas. On the way down back at the saddle there was 10-15 Mt. Goats hanging around....Sweet.

In honor of the Pioneers Rob and I ventured from the Gate at Francis Peak to Thurston Peak and back. Franics is the one with the big FAA towers and Thurston is the highest peak in Morgan/Davis counties... Ridge trail got sketchy in a few places. Great day out on the trails.. and no Rattlers... 

View from Thurston..

Sweet summit this morning with Rob. We headed up the Frary Peak trail on Antelope Island. Just over three miles to the summit and back around 2100ft vert. Good push. The last bit up to the peak is step! Lot's o' wildlife. Cool vistas. Peace.
