DATE: Saturday, April 25
HIKERS: Amy, James, Kuma the dog
RT TIME: 1 hr approx.
AMY'S NOTES: I finally now know what people are talking about when they say Millcreek is a favorite hotspot. A beautiful canyon minutes away from SLC proper. (Head East on 3800 South and you are in Millcreek). The road is closed off about half the year and becomes exclusively available to hikers, skiers, dogs, etc. Saturday was very rainy, cold, and windy, and the snow in the canyon was rapidly melting. The creeks were bulging with water. This weekend was originally scheduled for Notch Peak but we backed out due to predicted storms. Climbing Notch in the cold windy rain on an exposed face, would have frankly been miserable. Glad we postponed. Despite the beauty of Millcreek, the photo is pretty bad. A quick shot while trying to keep the camera dry.
