Peak performance ?

At an elevation of 9,998 feet, Jupiter Peak dominates Park City and can be an easy hike if you park your car 2.2 miles away, at Empire Pass, 1,145 feet below.

The path to the summit follows the ridge-line and gets you there in about one hour and returning takes about 40 minutes. My daughter and I climbed it yesterday and got caught in a mixture of thunderstorm and hailstorm.
The weather was unsettled when we left home and suddenly turned to the worst as we reached the peak. For a while we were about certain to be struck by lighting, but we dodged the fireballs but just got pummeled by half-inch sized hails!
