So July 27th I climbed Mount Timpanogos for the third time and the beauty of the mountain never fails to impress me. This time was special because my 16 year old daughter hiked the mountain with me this time. I was concerned that she wouldn’t make it but she was incredible and made it all the way to the top, along with two of her friends.
We Started out at just before 6 am and started the hike at 6:20.
Here we are at the first waterfall. With the dry year it is quite a bit smaller then usual but it still is amazing.
So after hiking for about 3 hours we got out of the canyon and this is where it flattens out and the actual hiking is not so strenuous. This is where we found the wildlife & flowers with all the meadows.
Here are some of the pictures that we got of the mountain goats:
The meadows are so scenic. I could spend hours with a good book and a picnic basket.
Then we started the third and final part of the hike. While the rock fields was probably the worst, I think the fact that our bodies were worn out made it worse.
We finally made it to the top!! The view from both the saddle and from the peak are amazing!
It was a great hike and I can’t wait until next year!!
I had to include there pictures from my daughter’s friend. The are pretty amazing!!
