Trip Report: Day Hike Mt. Superior and Monte Cristo from Alta
Day Hike Mt. Superior and Monte Cristo from Alta
By Evette Raen
| It was a lovely partly cloudy and mostly sunny fall day for our hike to Mt. Superior and Monte Cristo from Alta organized by Alex Arakelian on Saturday, October 29, 2016. We took an adventurous way up deviating from the trail early on and climbing up boulders to get back onto the main route. A group of five goats including a kid scaled the mountain throughout our trip. We encountered several hiker groups along the way and a solo hiker ventured along with us near the peaks and back down the trail. The summits of Superior and Monte Cristo offered great 360 degree views of the Wasatch brushed with snow and magnificent clouds. After the hike, later that evening, most of us enjoyed the WMC Halloween Masquerade Party at the Wasatch Mountain Lodge.
