KSL Tram Tower Hike

While my wife was out for a run this morning I came across a blog post about the old KSL tram towers that took technicians up to Farnsworth peak up until the mid 80's and decided it would be cool to go check them out. So when my wife got back from her run I took off and hiked up to tower 3.

Here is the link to the blog post that got me interested

I parked further away than I really needed to but it made it 1.7 miles from the Jeep to the tram tower ( 3.4 miles total). max elevation was 5704ft starting at 4384ft - 1320 ft of elevation gain. Great hike, great views and got a little bit of running in at the end as I ran almost 75% of the way back to the jeep.. Enough text here are the pics you want :)

 Some cool helicopters flew by on the hike up.
