Lookout Peak, Emigration Canyon, UT, USA
An alternate route to Lookout Peak from Big Mountain pass.
Silver Lake Flat from Tibble Fork
First ski shoe trip of the year. Enough snow on the roads to make for easy going.
Silver Lake Flat Snowshoeing
Good snow all the way. Beyond SL Flat Res I was breaking the trail. Turned back at the mine tailings.
Nice trail for snowshoeing. About 3 feet of snow in the upper stretches, maybe more in Thayne canyon.
Blanche Lake Hike
I visited nearby Lake Florence and Lake Lillian on this trip also.
A punishing ascent with a few sketchy areas. Terrain is mixed snow, ice, mud, and rock with the snow and ice becoming more prevalent at 9k feet. Traction and poles are a really good idea on this trail for this time of year. There are a few old ruined miner cabins and shafts along the way.
White pine lake
An awesome late season hike before the snow gets deep. This is a longish but moderate hike. Plenty of water along the way.
