This past weekend Carol and I decided that we were going to go hiking about twice a week after work to prepare ourselves for some backpack-camping. So off we went yesterday to Cecret (it’s not a typo, that is how you spell it) Lake. It was a really nice hike, you were pretty much hiking at the top of the Alta ski resort:
But since we were so high, it was pretty cold, I would estimate 40F. And it took us longer that what we thought. Going up the canyon takes about 25 minutes if you’re going that high. So we got to the trail at 7pm, we only had one hour of sunlight left.
We concluded that it was too late in the season for going camping in the mountains around SLC. But hopefully we keep the hikes up. We just need to be better protected from the cold and get there earlier.
