Lake to Ourselves!

The best part about living in Salt Lake City is that you can have brunch at Ruth's Diner at 8am, pack up your car around 10am, leave for the trail by 11am, and be on the trail by 11:30am.

This is exactly what my husband and I did when we decided to take a last minute backpacking trip to Lake…

  • Lake Desolation from the hike to Square Top peak
