On Tuesday, September 21, 2010 I drove from Park City (where I was staying) to Guardsman Pass. The trailhead at the Pass accesses trails on both the North and South sides. This trailhead is very popular mainly with mountain bikers and is very active 7 days a week and even at night. I passed it at 7:00 PM one evening and saw a group of bikers just going in equipped with head lights.

On this day I did two small hikes on what I call the Guardsman hike and drive. The first hike was 1.8 miles on the trails going north from Guardsman Pass. There are some spectacular views from the top of the mountain there including some of a Ski Patrol shack, a chair lift that appears only there to get Ski Patrol to the top of the mountain when it is snowed in and a catwalk that goes from the shack to a viewpoint looking to the west side of the mountain. An interesting setup.

I then drove down Pine Canyon which overlooks the small town of Midway, Utah with some stops along the way including a 2.3 mile hike on a 4WD dirt road. Pine Canyon was full of fall reds on this day and that is what captured my interest. The 2.3 mile hike was intended to get up close and personal with the fall reds along the way. The pictures tell the rest of that story.

Havasu Canyon Trail - Sep 15 2014
I was watching the helicopter make multi-drops of people and supplies when, at one point, a stray horse wandered into the landing field (the gate was open). The guys unloading the supplies chased it around the field until it went back out the gate. Then as it was running up the main drag, another resident must have thought it got loose so he shooed it back into another open gate and back into the field. So now these guys are chasing it around the field again but this time they start pelting it with rocks. The horse was panicking and didn't know where to go. Rocks were being hurled at it from all directions. He ended up falling down after a really hard rock hit and it looked like he broke...
