Ensign Peak is a mountain on the north edge of Salt Lake City, just behind the State Capitol building. The Mormon pioneers climbed the peak shortly after arriving to plan the city's layout. The trail to the top is easy, but I found it steeper than the descriptions implied. It's about 1 mile round-trip and the views of the city and the Great Salt Lake are incredible.
We leave SLC today for home. We plan to stay overnight in Cheyenne and I hope to post some pics of Cheyenne Lodge #1.
