Easy hike for this upcoming weekend (Dec 9) in the canyon? What shoe wear is appropriate for this time of year? ( how much snow?)
We will be passing through the area, and would like to do a short hike or loop around a lake (either Silver Lake or Lake Solitude?) as well as have a meal (breakfast or lunch) at Silver Fork Lodge. What's the best way to structure this outing, if we only have 3-4 hours to play with?
My friend is landing in Salt Lake City today and is interested in getting her rental car and going on the scenic drive. How could we find out in advance if any of the roads might be closed due to winter weather? She won't be doing much hiking but would like to drive then stop here and there for vistas and pictures before it gets dark.
