For my birthday, Miriam and I decided to dine up at the Steakpit at Snowbird. We got a good room rate at the Cliff Lodge thinking a night's stay after a Steakpit blowout was a better idea than trying to drive back to the valley. A fine bottle of wine accompanied the excellent dinner.
I even got a birthday cake of sorts.
We were joined by a couple of special guests, one of which found his own dinner. (Apparently they make a nightly visit for a bread roll, and provide a special treat for Steakpit diners).
The next day, in an effort to burn off all those Steakpit calories, I began the hike up Peruvian Gulch. The elevation gain was 1000', and I was one tuckered dude by the time I hit the access road leading a long traverse back to the resort. On the way, I did find a little waterfall and stream, still running in this dry year.
The Fall colors were coming on...
After the hike, and a bit of a rest, it was off to Oktoberfest and a bunch of beer. I don't remember much else that night. Sometime the next day we were found at the Alta Lodge enjoying fine jazz guitar, a nice brunch, and the wonderful mountains (forgot my camera). All in all, a welcome and enjoyable interlude.
