After reading the fun adventures on the Blog in City Creek, I decided to see the area.  I am not familiar with any of the trails around the area.  I started on 9th ave and dropped down into memory grove and went up to the canyon and found a west side trail and took it.  Pretty much just stayed near the canyon.  Will have to explore more at another time, it is a really pretty area.  Dogs on the loose in packs though near the mouth of the canyon.

You always were fond of the West side.. Had a dog charge us yesterday on the trail - almost had to introduce it to my Cascadia... Granduer...

If there is one problem with those trails is that no one leashes their dog. It drives me nuts. Any time you want a tour, let me know. I'd love to meet you over there and cruise some awesome trails.

Dogs scare me more than buffalo!
