Mt. Timpanogos
Mt.Timpanogos

Mount Timpanogos: 11,750 feet.
The second highest peak in the Wasatch.

We started from Aspen Grove.
It took us 4.5 hours to reach the summit and 3 hours to get back down.
The Timpanogos shelter by Emerald Lake is about 80% of the way up.
The most difficult sections are the beginning before the waterfalls,
and the glacier after Emerald Lake.

To effectively climb the glacier, a strong stick or ice axe is very helpful.
You don't have to go up the glacier you can continue west.
From the top, we saw a small herd of mountain goats.

On the way down, we saw 18 people going up after dark
to camp in solitude at the shelter near Emerald Lake.

Timpanogos glacier

The darker layer of snow is a thick blanket of dirt-filled ice,
and is old, much like a glacier.
But, it is probably only about 10 -16 feet deep.
So it is probably not causing much glacial scaring.
It could quite possibly be the last remains of an ancient glacier
maybe as far back as the Quaternary Period (1.6 million years ago)
