{Hiking Utah} Pfeifferhorn via Red Pine Lake Trail

Hey, hi, hello out there, it's been far too long.......
 The peak to the left in the distance is the Pfeifferhorn.

 Red Pine Lake

 Heading up several switch backs up to the first ridge.

 A view of lower Red Pine Lake (on the left) and upper Red Pine Lake (on the right) as well as a small pond.

 A view of the Wasatch and Maybird Lake's (super small lakes).

At the top of Pfeifferhorn, enjoying the views. 
 Looking over at Lone Peak. Looks like rain.


 Pfeifferhorn is a great hike for those who like a few steep climbs, a little boulder scrambling, and 360 degree views of the Wasatch mountains. It's been awhile since I've been atop the Pfeifferhorn and last week H and I found ourselves scrambling to the top for some break taking views. When you're on top of this jutting peak, you kind of feel like a queen (or king) standing so high at 11, 326 ft and looking down at the specks of people below trying to attain the same thing. It's worth the effort. It's always worth the effort.

Until next time,
