#1: looking east to the Wasatch Range

(visited by David Mower)

04-Apr-2002 -- I left with high hopes, but the wetland and the left-over marsh grass soon did me in. I hate to log attempts, but I may never get any closer on this one. It is clear from prior attempts that this DCP lies beyond a wetland and in the mudflats surrounding the Great Salt Lake.

I have been checking the lake levels and found them to be quite low, so I thought I had a chance. But, the wetland was much wetter than I anticipated. The combination of water and deep, dead marsh grass from last fall made the going extremely slow and difficult. I gave up at 1.37 miles from the point.

It was a beautiful spring day. The wetland was alive with the sounds of frogs and birds.

A bad day exploring is better than any other day!

  Notes
On my map, the roads to the west of Kaysville are a little confusing. The basic landmark destination is the intersection of E 750 St S and Holmes Creek. The confluence is 1.78 miles (9384 feet) southwest (approximately) of this point. The actual heading is 227 degrees (true bearing).
Going south on SR 243/South Main St. in the center of Kaysville, bear right onto S 50 W (one block south of Center Street). Go 1.42 miles south until you come to Burton Lane (with I-15 directly to your right). Turn right onto S Burton Lane. Cross over or under I-15 and then a set of railroad tracks. Go 0.22 miles and cross another set of railroad tracks. Go 0.4 miles to the intersection with Sunset Drive. Turn left and go 0.3 miles; bear right onto an unnamed road! Go 1.14 miles on this road and intersect with E 750 St. S. Last road. Turn right and go 2.15 miles to Holmes Creek, your landmark destination as mentioned above.
