Squaw Peak, Wasatch Range

Today we had our first "Fun Friday" of the summer.  Basically, fun Friday is where I invite all of my athletes who are training with me over the summer on a outdoor excursion of some kind.  Today we hiked up Rock Canyon to the top of Squaw Peak.  4 total miles with an elevation gain of over 3,000 feet.  It was a gorgeous chilly morning but warmed up once we climbed out of the canyon into the sun.  I was joined by Megan and Andie from the tennis team, and Maggie from the golf team.  Most people had finals starting for the Spring semester and couldn't make it, but the four of us had a great hike.  It was nice to get into some alpine terrain after all the trips to the Southern Utah red rock.

Here is a link to a hike description and directions to the trailhead if anyone in interested:
