Pete's Rock on Wasatch Blvd. In the distance is downtown Salt Lake City.
Above is a bunch of strange lingering exhaust from airplanes.

From near the beginning of the trail coming around the corner
to see part of what's ahead of us.

Lot's of colorful autumn leaves appearing.

I was here 6 years ago to the day, taking similar pictures.

Blister Ridge, with the infamous Blister Hill next to it.
In the top left you can see the North and South Summits of Mount Olympus.

Strange rock formations everywhere.
