Catherine's Pass

Wasatch Mountains - Salt Lake City, Utah
Big Cottonwood Canyon
Brighton Ski Resort

Mount Wolverine
Mount Tuscarora
Catherines Pass

We started at the Silver Lake area in Brighton Ski Resort, Continued to Twin Lakes Pass, Climbed to the sub peak overlooking Wolverine Cirque, then summited Mount Wolverine. From there we continued east over Mount Tuscarora, down to Catherine's Pass, Past Lake Catherine, Lake Martha, and Lake Mary, and back down to the Brighton Parking area. This is probably one of the most scenic hikes in the Wasatch.
I'm not sure but I think it took us about 5 hours.

Lake Catherine sits below Pioneer Peak and Sunset Peak.
A little pond sits on the other side of a rock mound from Catherine's Pass,
Can you see it? (Lower left from Lake Catherine)

Walking north toward Pioneer Peak from Catherine's Pass
Clayton Peak is visible in the background.
