The best thing about Salt Lake City is ALL THE EPIC things available within an hour’s driving distance. Hiking, climbing, camping, 11,000’ peaks, you name it, it’s there. I called up Jena to see if she wanted to tackle Lone Peak with me and at 6:30am on a Saturday morning, we set off on the Cherry Canyon Logging Trail.
This past weekend I was in Salt Lake City for a hot second on a little reunion trip with my best friend from college. When in Utah, I always hit up the guys from Teton Sports because they know the coolest spots. We couldn’t get an extra long hike in but when the mountains are so close, it’s easy to get outside. Shawn took us up to Silver Lake (8,740’) in Big Cottonwood Canyon.
