It’s Snowing in August? Let’s Climb Sugarloaf!

August 16, 2009 at 4:20 pm 1 comment

We awoke on Saturday to rain and cold in the Salt Lake Valley. It looked bad for hiking today. But by noon the weather started to clear, so BarBarJinks and sirloinofbeef headed out for an ascent of Sugarloaf Mountain. As we drove up the Little Cottonwood Canyon on our way to the Cecret Lake trailhead we noticed that some of the higher peaks surrounding us had received a dusting of snow. Hmmm – that might mean that……

Well, in fact, we were in for snowy ascent of Sugarloaf.

The ascent was a slog up snow-covered scree. But we had the mountain to ourselves and the views were tremendous. Devil’s Castle looked inviting, but treacherous, just to the east.

Oh yeah, did I mention? We brought Cheeseburgers.
