Day Hike- Deseret Peak
By Chris Venizelos
HIKE 09/03/2018 MOD+

Deseret Peak is an 11,031 ft peak in the Stansbury Mountains above Grantsville.
Jen got a flat tire before we got to the trailhead, which delayed us a bit while Darryl put on the spare donut tire. Since Sue needed to be back to Salt Lake by 4:30 pm, I told her, Michele and Roberto to start hiking right away. Jen, Darryl, myself, Bailey and her dog Kovu started hiking at about 10:20 am. We took a 5 min break at the saddle and 50 min later at about 1:00 pm we were at the peak. For 45 min, we ate lunch, relaxed and enjoyed the views of Skull Valley, Grantsville, Tooele, the Great Salt Lake and the Oquirrh Mountains. It was calm on the peak which is very unusual. We finished the hike at 4:00 pm.
It was a warm day. We saw a deer early in the hike. There were also many other hikers, many with dogs. On the way down, we encountered a grouse hunter and a bow-a-arrow deer hunter.
I am looking forward to leading this hike again next year on Labor Day.

Hikers: Sue Baker, Michele Stancer, Roberto Colon, Darryl Furse, Jen Edgar, Chris Venizelos, Bailey Post and her dog Kovu.
