A few years ago, some friends and I decided to hike from the South Teton Canyon up to Alaska Basin, around Buck Mountain and down Death Canyon in a day. One of our annual Teton up-and-over hikes. We were to be picked up on the other side by wives and friends.
A few years ago my son, brother and I were preparing to climb Mount Shasta, one of California’s 14ers. As preparation we decided to do a spring climb of Mount Timpanogos in the Wasatch Range of Utah near where my brother lives.
