My roommate bought a book titled 60 Hikes within 60 Miles of Salt Lake City. I’ve decided its a summer must have.
In my constant quest to finding alternative recreational/fitness opportunities, I’m hoping to do at least one or two hikes a week. I think its time I started enjoying the mountains I have the priviledge of living by, year round.
So to start my pursuit I hit up “Emigration Ridgeline Trail” with my roommate Melody. (technically my second hike of the season, Moabs Fisher Towers being the first.) I wasn’t particularly a fan of the first part of the hike which leads you past petroleum fuel lines and up a steep rocky accent. After that the trail slowing becomes overgrown with shrubs, small trees and wildflowers. I would characterize the hike as rolling. Up, then down, then up, then down. I personally prefer more consistent hikes with mellow accents but thats just me and my prosthetic mechanics.
It really was a beautiful hike. The seclusion, views, and wildflowers made it worth it. Here we are on the hike:
The last half of the hike was easier going and just the kind of thing that makes you appreciate being alive.
