Mount Timpanogos, September 21, 2002.
Below are a few photographs from a nice ride that three of us did around
the Mt. Timpanogos massif on September 21, 2002. The participants
were Prettyboy (aka Birthdayboy on this day), Flyingengineer and Somepunk. Our friend Berkeley stood
us up to go yachting.

Prettyboy is the first to suffer - on the climb to the Scenic Loop Summit.

the climb that lies ahead.
Flyingengineer would have ridden this section if he weren't preparing for 'cross
Sagebrush Flat and Utah Lake suddenly open up in front of you as you round
the north end of the Timpanogos massif.

The final pain: Little Baldy Pass, which lies between Little Baldy and Timpanogos.
Not everyone rode to the top.
"Damnit, you guys, this gu I made is good!" Flyingengineer, we love ya!
Little Baldy Pass.
These beautiful folds can be seen by looking ESE, across Provo Canyon, from
the south end of the Timpanogos massif.

The mountain. Sagebrush Flat is the broad flat area along the left
(northern) portion of the image, about half way up from the elevation of the
road to the top of the ridge. Little Baldy is the green knob about 1/3
of the way across the image from the right edge.
