Timpanogos dominates the southern Wasatch skyline. But Cascade Mountain, its neighbor to the south and its partner in creating Provo Canyon can be equally breathtaking, magnificent, and eminent. It is, arguably, much less accessible than the well traveled Timpanogos, which sees thousands of pilgrims climb its slopes every summer. Cascade Mountain on the other hand remains quietly indifferent, with only a handful of passers-by traversing underneath its massive walls of stone and earth. The combined effort of the two gatekeepers of the backcountry is a marvelous piece of visual stimulation, inspiring in its enormity and comforting in its constant, ever present superiority.
