Cecret Lake and Surround….

One of the pioneers from years gone-by named it “Cecret Lake,” probably because it was/is hidden way back at the end of a canyon and was little known to others…it is also referred to as “Secret Lake,” because…it probably feels more correct to do so.  The lake is at the end of a trail that is only one mile in length and is surrounded by beautiful crags and dome-shaped mountain tops.  On the other side of the hills around the lake are winter ski areas that receive more than 50 feet of snow each season.  All of this is in the Albion Basin, located at the end of the road that leads through Little Cottonwood Canyon and takes you to the ski village of Alta…which is about 15 miles from Sandy…one of the neighboring cities/towns of Salt Lake City, Utah.

    • Yep, you could say that this is where it all starts…and then all of the water from the other drainages and gorges add to it all along the way….

      And thank you. 🙂
