Grippa! I will defer to your wisdom!

the city, the perch, AND the Cottonwood Traverse! NICE WORK Johnny. You're practically an SLC local with all those ticks under your belt :)


I was grasping at the 3rd set of adventure photos being Idaho's Lost River Range, even though I recognized none of the peaks.

Wow! I also do not recognize any of those peak shots from my living in SLC 1983-84, & enjoying peak bagging adventures in between Big Cottonwood and Little Cottonwood Canyons. I must not have got to the good spots--------or have spaced the memories.

Sly of the posters, to not show shots of the SLC urban floor.
