Brian Head Peak

Brian Head Peak, Utah11,307 feet above sea level is Brian Head Peak. This was my last work spot for Bryce Canyon. We restored the look-out that sits on the edge of the cliff over looking the surrounding valleys.

If you’re wondering what I did specifically did, I relayed the path leading up to the hut and did a lot of painting on the interior.

This spot is a cool place to pull up to if you are by Cedar Breaks, or if you are by Brian Head Ski Resort. It’s just a few minutes up the road and it will give you some stunning views of the surrounding areas.

It is also very cold up here. We were working in temperatures down in the 30’s with the wind chill in August.

Oddly enough, I do not know where my photo’s for this place is, so I have to use someones else. Thanks Todd Anderson.
