Smithfield Canyon Ski/Snowshoe,
January 28, 2012
Jim K. amd 16 others enjoyed a good trip to Smithfield
Canyon. Dave P. and Jack were on skis, and Jim K, Dan,
Carol, Heather, Sarah, Gordon, Rich, Kelly, Gustavo, Norma, Kyle,
Tim, Jeanne, Monika, and Betty used snowshoes.
Snow and weather conditions improved dramatically after the group
left the shady lower canyon. The travelers separated into
two smaller groups and used walkie-talkies to keep in touch.
Gustavo, a visitor from Spain, had a good time chatting in Spanish
with Heather, and Sarah entertained us with stories of her
adventures hiking to remote areas in southern Utah to find
historic rock writing by an ancestor. We had to push two
stuck cars after our return to the icy parking area.
