Back in September (let's see, yep, 2-3 months ago), we moved to southwestern Utah for a few weeks. John picked up some project work on a huge solar farm installation. Something he hadn't done before and it was in the right direction for our travels (i.e. moving south as winter approached). Cool, let's explore another part of Utah.
We started at Minersville Lake State Park for a few nights, as a basecamp while we figured out the lay of the land.
Which for us usually means literally climbing around on whatever hills we see nearby. I had fun running on dirt roads and trails around the lake, then we set our sights on the peak to the west. It probably has a name, but I'm not finding it easily right now. Regardless, it was an interesting climb with lots of thin slate-type rock to deal with. And some inspiration for cooking pancakes later:
