When I hike up Ensign Peak, just a mere 350 feet up, I am always amazed by the beautiful view that surrounds me. The gravel trail winds to the top of the mountain until it reaches a monument made of stones. When I look south, I see Salt Lake City, as well as the pristine Utah Capitol Building exactly one mile down. The northern view is full of snow capped mountains, while the western view holds the Great Salt Lake. When I look east, I observe the Wasatch Mountain Range. This view makes me feel at peace, and it has ever since I was little and would hike the mountain with friends. When I climb this trail now, I am reminded of my childhood adventures, but most importantly, I am reminded of Salt Lake City’s beauty.
