snowshoe to enniss peak (9,320') - January 2, 2017

Begin the New Year with a nice hike to the so-called halfway point of a route to Lone Peak. On a good-weather day views from Enniss are spectacular and include the west cirque of Lone Peak, Box Elder Peak, Mt. Timpanogos, Utah Lake and the Oquirrhs. Depending upon snow conditions micro spikes are recommended as are, of course, snowshoes. Conditions on the Draper Ridge can be cold, especially if wind is a factor. The restroom at the TH is normally open. Co-sponsor of this activity is Lana Christiansen, Given normal weather conditions the r/t time shouldn't exceed 7-8 hours.
