Exploring Utah: Red Pine Trail

September 18, 2010.  Little Cottonwood Canyon, Salt Lake City, Utah.  Yesterday I hiked to the Red Pine Lakes, nestled below Pfeifferhorn Peak in Little Cottonwood Canyon; an impressively splendid hike...both for the superb mountain vistas as well as the steep climb which makes for an excellent workout.  The trail to lower Red Pine Lake is 3 miles, with an elevation gain of 2040 feet.

Along the way I passed Little Cottonwood Creek

And finally...the top of the world with the euphoria that comes with it.  Elevation 9620 feet.
