I live in a beautiful state. It’s a shame I don’t take advantage of it as often as I should.
I hiked the desolation trail and made our way up to the Salt Lake Overlook yesterday, it was definitely a challenge. I have let myself get out of shape again. The hike was four miles up and back, and I nearly quit on the way up, I am so glad I didn’t. This trail is moderately challenging, with a ton of switch backs and a few little rock climbs along the way. My legs were pretty shaky on the way down but I’ll definitely do this trail again, the reward is an amazing 360° view of the surrounding mountains, and the city.
Millcreek Canyon has many trails and is an awesome way to get out of the city without much driving. It literally took us 15 minutes from town to our trailhead.
I’m glad I’m getting back in shape, eating right, and best of all hanging out with a great friend who was uber patient with me while I fought my way to the top of this hike.
