Willow Heights, Big Cottonwood Canyon, Utah- June 2014
I had plans for a dad/daughter day, so we decided to go for a hike. I wanted to see if the upper Wasatch was ready, so we gave Willow Heights a shot. The trail is dry, and quite a few flowers were in bloom. Everything is green, so you get some nice shade on the way up. Once we got to the lake, we decided because of the temperatures to head above the lake and in the trees. After some exploring, we found a downed aspen that was the perfect size to sit on. After enjoying some snacks and wandering off trail for a bit, we decided to hike down. The hike out was breezy and was a great time. It is nice now that most of the upper Wasatch is ready. I will be hitting some much bigger and more beautiful hikes in the coming weeks. This one was the recon on the area, and we are ready to go! Get out there and enjoy these beautiful mountains!
