My conference at Aspen Grove ended at 3:30 pm, and I decided to do a quick afternoon "test run" up the first mile and half of the Mt. Timpanogos trail in preparation for my hike to the top on the following day. I had spent most of the conference that day staring out the windows at the mountains and chomping at the bit to get out on the trails.

As I had never done the trail before and would be starting out before dawn with about 90 minutes of trail time in the dark, I wanted to make sure I knew where I was going and wouldn't have any issues navigating in the dark. Plus, today was a beautiful day, with clear blue skies, and the following day was forecast to be cloudy with a chance of rain/snow. So, I wanted to take in the views, particularly on this first section of the trail which I wouldn't see much of at o-dark-thirty the following morning.

Wow. Talk about a teaser! About one mile from the trailhead, I hit the first waterfall. Gorgeous! another half mile up was the next set of falls. Equally gorgeous. I climbed a bit past that to an opening on the beautiful fall colors on the drainage below. I wanted to go further, but needed to head back down to Provo for a dinner appointment.

Definitely pumped for doing the full 15 mile trail the following morning ....
