Things To Do in Utah: Hike to Squaw Peak

Thursday, May 9, 2013

I have decided we are going to have a "Confessions of a Wife who doesn't want to be an avid hiker, but loves her husband, and wants to spend time with him, so she reluctantly goes along on crazy hikes" week.

Because here is hike number two of the year, and hike number three will be coming tomorrow:

We (and by "we" I mean Rob) decided to hike to Squaw Peak, and I am just going to say it.... not my favorite.

The first half was great through Rock Canyon, the views were really pretty, and it was a nice easy trail. Then you get off the main trail and start climbing a very steep trail. Like worse than the Y steep.

And Rob told me it was going to be easier than the Y.

And I may have gotten really mad at him because it wasn't easier than the Y and I really hated it.

When we were hiking back down Hannah so nicely pointed out the spot where Rob and I "fighted".

Good times!!

Samantha was at a Softball clinic and we didn't have time to make it all the way to the peak before it was time to pick her up so we stopped at the meadow to eat lunch and then hiked back down.

I have never been so happy to see a meadow in my entire life.

Rob is determined we are going to hike it again later in the year when the snow is melted, but this time we will make sure we have time to make it all the way to the peak.

I promised to give it another chance, AND, hopefully since I fully know what to expect now I can be better prepared...

Or I can fake an injury that day.

To be continued.......


  1. Ha! I love that you told the truth about how miserable you were instead of just showing the pics that would have, on their own, just made your family seem to have a perfect life of adventure. The funny thing is, even with your honesty, these posts have made me really miss all the hikes I did in my high school and college days and you have now got me wondering where to pawn off my younger kids so we can take the older ones hiking!
