View looking down Peruvian Gulch - Snowbird Utah

    Newer Older

    I spent a couple of days in Snowbird Utah at the Cliff Lodge with friends. Great hiking in Alpine and subAlpine environments. I hiked the Peruvian Gulch Trail to the Peruvian Gulch Summer Road to the Hidden Peak saddle and then to Mount Baldy then on to Sugarloaf. I came back to Hidden Peak and scouted American Fork Twin Peaks. Back to Hidden Peak and then in on the Ridgeline Trail (Cirque Traverse) Beautiful views of the Wasatch Mountains and Peruvian Gulch Canyon, Gad Valley, Mineral Basin and Little Cottonwood Canyon. Mount Baldy is on the North-South ridge separating Snowbird from Alta. The winter snowpack was still melting. Babbling brooks in Peruvian Gulch. And the wildflowers were blooming. I used the rudimentary maps provided by the Snowbird Activity Center. The Wasatch Speedgoats were staging a 50K ultra (about 31 miles and 10,000AEG). The first finisher completed the event in 5hrs 43minutes. 142 runners and I heard that 130 finished.
