car camp hike deep creek mountains - May 23, 2009
The Deeps are western Utah's hidden treasure. They have magnificent craggy peaks (over 12,000 feet) with glacial cirques, deep twisty canyons and thick forest, and virtually untouched wilderness. They're what the Wasatch would look like if Salt Lake City hadn't been built there (except the peaks are taller!). This year, the Deeps didn't get quite as much snow as the Wasatch did, so we may be able to go high up in the range, but we'll be flexible to account for the conditions in May. You can expect some long day hikes, possibly exploratory or off-trail, in rugged terrain, followed by fine dining back in camp.
