What better way to start out a weekend in Salt Lake than two hikes in one day? It seemed like a good idea at the time but two pizzas and an uphill hike later...well we regretted it.
Our wonderful friends Dustin and Kianna kept up with our snail pace (can I just say get yourselves great friends like these??) and utter exhaustion. The hike starts through the Desolation Trail in Millcreek Canyon and winds back up the mountain. Hopefully you enjoy switchbacks :) This is truly one of the lesser travelled trails so we enjoyed the seclusion.
