2013 Snowshoe #1 (Desolation to SLC Overlook)
21 Monday Jan 2013
I had to get out of the soup … skied at Solitude yesterday, before coming home to watch the Harbaugh brothers coach their respective teams to the Super Bowl (by the way, I hope Jim’s team kicks John’s team’s collective ass).
Today, went for a snowshoe up in Millcreek Canyon, from the Desolation 019 trailhead up to the Salt Lake Overlook, where I got to see just how soupy it was down in the valley. On the bright side, though, the haze wasn’t brown or yellow, which I have seen in the past when coming down Big Cottonwood or Parley’s Canyon before.
And, even if the valley was completely socked in, it still made for a halfway decent panorama.
My legs are worked … and yet I still have some more climbing to do, as I head up and down stairs to the laundry room so I have something clean to wear at work tomorrow.
