slow start

It really seems like we're getting a slow start to the summer here, despite the 90+ F temperatures this past week.  Between the weather, work schedules and road races, we haven't been hiking for a month - since Moab! - and have only been on our MTBs a couple of times.  This past weekend didn't do us any favors either:  H had to travel for work and so he got back very late Friday night (or very early Saturday morning, depending on how you look at it) and was just exhausted Saturday morning, plus it started raining at 10 a.m. and continued all day, until just after 7 p.m.  Not particularly conducive to getting back on the trails.

It isn't always like this in June in northern Utah, though.  Here are links to some older posts about when we actually had gotten outside in June to put boots on dirt:  Mt. Aire last year, which is always steeper than I remember it being; a chilly Red Pine Lake hike in 2014; a solo Desolation Lake hike in 2013; in 2012, checking out the last bit of snow at Alta; hiking in Butler Fork and Deer Valley; and the ever-popular Grandeur Peak.
