Ophir Expidition

*Further Tales of the Weekend Warriors*

Friday night my neighbor and I decided to head off for some camping. Our destination was just above the town of “Ophir”:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ophir%2C_UT a small village that once was a booming mining town on the west side of the Oquirrh Mountains.

My house is at the north base of the lake mountains, with a great view of the Wasatch front and the Oquirrh Mountains. Many times have I sat in my yard, longing to climb these peaks that are so temptingly close. To this end my neighbor and I have begun to set up plans for how to best access this area.
