With the actual winter we are having along the Wasatch Front, I've been hopeful that we'd actually be able to do some legitimate skiing in the foothills. The top two on my tick list have been Mount Wire and Grandeur Peak. I think that's because I spend so much time running/hiking these neighborhood sentinels that I always wanted to be able to travel their paths on skis. In particular, I have wanted to ski between the two large billboard appearing structures (actually microwave repeaters).
After two feet on top of a rotten base this weekend and ongoing cold temperatures, I finally got my chance.

Without a lot of motivation to drive to ski up high, maybe I'll do my part to limit the pollution around here and enjoy the novel convenience of skiing from work this week.
