As you can see if you look past those two drop-dead handsome boys, when you get out here before sunset you see the whole Wasatch Front lit up before you. It is a knockout vista. This was taken from Buffalo Point after a short but steepish hike. The boys and I were alone on this one, because poor Kate was sick and unable to make the trip with us, mom had to stay home and do the taxes (in case I haven't mentioned it hear lately, I really love that woman).
The views to the west and south are just as good. Keegan was a real gamer on our hike, insisting on walking and going everywhere Alden went, and Alden was just great, running up the trail and so happy just to be exploring. His first words to me when we got to the island were "Dad, are we far from the city? I want to see how far away we are from the city. This is great!"
The top of Buffalo Point is filled with really great scrambling and climbing rocks, and the kids just went to town. No need for a play structure when you have these. It kept them very busy until sunset. Even then they didn't want to leave -- Alden exclaimed "Darn! I should have brought a flashlight!" Keegan was a little more anxious to get out of the constant stiff wind, but hung in, nonetheless, for a sunset photo before we headed back.
