Last Saturday I went on a killer bike ride up Big Cottonwood Canyon with some friends, Brad and Jessica. We did a trail called Wasatch Crest a grueling 10 mile ride that starts at the top of the canyon along Guardsman pass and follows the ridge line for about 6 miles before dropping back in the canyon at Desolation Lake. The ride starts out with almost a mile of mean up hill riding then flattens out for a bit before a major downhill ride that killed my hands from the constant braking. The whole ride took us 3 and half hours.
Here's Brad and Jessica somewhere along the top of the trail, with Brighton Ski resort in the background.
Here's me taking a brief rest after a little uphill battle.
Gorgeous view looking down into the Canyons Ski resort toward Kimble Junction
Here's Desolation Lake, It's so Desolate, I wonder if it's sad and lonely, but it's so pretty.
Here's a Panorama I took of Desolation Lake.
