Mountain Biking in Corner Canyon
by JakePehrson on Sep 24, 2014
Draper, Utah, United States
Mountain biking | 3.1 miles
This was a quick mountain bike ride with the Boy Scouts.  We had planned on starting at Potato Hill and finishing at the church near the corner of Highland Dr. and Traverse Ridge Rd, but due to a few wrong turns and the lack of light we returned to Potato Hill to end our ride.
Zion's Kolob Arch, Lee Pass to Wildcat Canyon
by JakePehrson on Sep 15, 2011
Utah, United States
Backpacking | 18.7 miles
Jake Pehrson, Will Spencer and Arthur Klinkenburg. We originally planned a different trip, but because of some very cold weather and rain further north we decided to head south in an attempt to avoid the rain a cold.  Both Will and I had got sick right before our trip and we decided we would "tough it out" instead of cancelling the trip. When we arrived at the Kolob Canyon visitor center we really didn't...

Dog Lake in Big Cottonwood Canyon
by JakePehrson on Jun 23, 2010
Mounthaven, Utah, United States
Hiking | 2.5 miles
The Dog Lake trailhead is located at the Mill D North Fork trailhead about 9 miles up Big Cottonwood Canyon.  It is an easy trail to follow and although there was still some small snow banks along the the trail towards the top the trail was completely dry and easy to navigate.  I forgot my Etrex Vista HCx so these tracks are from my sister's (Julia) Garmin Forerunner 305.  I would have had the track going back down the...

Hike to Doughnut Falls, UT
by JakePehrson on Aug 23, 2009
Hiking | 1.9 miles
Doughnut falls is an easy hike for both old and young.  I took my entire extended family including young kids, 2 pregnant ladies (one was my wife).  My 2 year old son walked the hike by himself.  Needless to say this is a fairly short hike.  You can easily be up and back within 1.5 hours.  The hike gains very little elevation.  Right before you reach the falls there is a couple of rocks...

Overnight Backpack Trip to Ibantik
by JakePehrson on Jul 18, 2009
High Uintas, Utah, United States
Backpacking | 10.1 miles
Ben (brother) and I decided last minute to do this backpack trip.  We pick Ibantik because it was a fairly short hike and passed quite a few lakes.  If you look at our tracks we missed the turn off to Cliff Lake and had to back track a little.  We did some fishing and saw some mountain goats (check out the pics).  Overall the hike was fairly easy.  We did lose the...

Day Hike to Lake Blanche, Lake Lillian, & Lake Florence
by JakePehrson on Jun 24, 2009
Canyon Enterprises, Utah, United States
Hiking | 7.1 miles
I wanted to go on a couple of backpack trips again this summer so I need to start getting in better shape.  I thought I picked a fairly easy hike, but this hike was much harder then I anticipated.  It was uphill the entire way.I went with Jeff Wood (friend) and Ben Pehrson (brother).  From the beginning my back was out of place (which rarely happens to me) luckily Ben carried my small pack...

Backpack Trip - High Uintas
by JakePehrson on Jul 17, 2008
Utah, United States
Backpacking | 22 miles
This trip was done with Jeff Wood, Brian Wood, and Me (Jake Pehrson).  The week before the trip I decided to hike along to the trail for a while to make sure the trail was dry enough for our weekend trip.  We hike all the way in to Carolyn, fished for a bit and hiked back out. The next weekend we hiked all the way to the Four Lakes Basin.  We left the option...
