Winter, trails, darkness, and all the weather.
One last hurrah before the end of the year. Runners, get ready for a fun and festive holiday treat along the trails of Squaxin Park.
Or Cable Cars, really.
Justin Housman writing for Adventure Journal:
Utah’s transportation authorities have been puzzling over how to deal with snarled traffic heading up Little Cottonwood Canyon on State Route 210. Snowbird and Alta ski resorts are up there, which draw huge lines of cars puttering up the road in the winter, but the entire area is a beautiful attraction drawing visitors, hikers, viewshed enthusiasts, you name it.
Yesterday they announced their decision: A gondola, running from the mouth of the Canyon, up to near the Alta resort.
I don’t know the area and I don’t know the stakeholders and interest groups, so perhaps I shouldn’t weigh in. But as you might’ve guessed, I love cable cars and gondolas, anything that’s not car travel, so I’m all for this idea.
