SNOWSHOE 03/14/2023 MOD

Ellen Sherk, Diane Budig, Mike Budig, Jim Kucera, Holly Pearson, Robert Day, Lisa Lewis and Vince Desimone met at the trailhead to hike Iron Mountain.. Along the trail we encountered many dogs and their owners and people riding sit sleds down the trail. Once at the Park City overlook we snowshoed in deep untracked snow on our own trail along a ridge above Park City Mountain Resorts Canyons ski runs. A few people turned back here and the rest summited Iron Mountain to enjoy views of the Wasatch Back: Snyderville Basin, Uinta Mountains, Lewis Peak and the greater Wasatch to the west. The trip took about five hours gaining 1980' vertical and 4.8 miles.
