    Northern Utah / Aug 1-3 / Help me pick a spot

    I have the first weekend in Aug available and I would like to get together with some folks. Help me pick a location in northern UT and let's see if we can get a few people that missed out on the trip down south. (Of course those of you that made the trip south are also more than welcome to join me again.)

    Here are some random suggestions.
    Washington or Trial lakes with hikes to Wall, clyde or Twin Lakes. (Campgrounds with hiking options.)
    Trout Creek (Wilderness area by the ladders at Strawberry)
    Flaming Gorge (Anywhere, but I would prefer the area below the dam. I would like to fish in the aquarium again.)
    Anything closer to the SLC valley or maybe Cache valley that you would like to visit???

    I'm open to suggestions...

    I'm busy from now until July 14th and scout camp is July 22-27. That pretty much makes those dates the first available, unless I sneak out for a night. That wouldn't be good for a group hang, but it might help my sanity.

    Anywhere up Mirror Lake Highway is always good. Might see less traffic if you drive down Skyline south of US6. The Swell will be dead empty that time of year, but it's not exactly strong on shade (or places to hang!).

    I'm spending the last week of July at Steiner and I'll likely hike to Ruth, Kamas and other lakes in the area with some scouts.

    I'm leaning towards the Green and possibly doing a float trip on Thursday. Anybody else up for a float on the Green?

    I will be at Steiner from July 17th through the 20th. I have tickets to see Rush on July 31st and have already taken August 1st off. I should have just enough time off saved to take the 2nd as well. That sounds like a great weekend. If you guys don't mind coming out west. South Willow canyon in Grantsville is beautiful. I havent been there to hang so I will have to scout it out first. I am totally down for that weekend!
    Keep it simple. The more crap you have and the more complicated it is, the more likely it is to break. Get back to basics man!

    I can do Grantsville that weekend. I might be flying solo, but I'm not sure. Check out an area and let me know what you come up with. Day hikes, fishing and general lolly gagging are all ok with me.

    Im going out with my son tonight. We are going to tryout the hammocks I finished last night. This will be my first night hanging so wish me luck. I was planning on going to Middle or Settlement but maybe I will head up to South Willow instead to check out the trees.

    South Willow has the Deseret Peak loop which I am told is a nice hike. I haven't been in good enough shape to do it yet but I am getting there.
