hike: provo peak via west ridge and squaw peak road

Provo Peak sits between the two giants of Utah County (Mount Nebo and Timpanogos), but at 11,068 feet is still one of the highest peaks in the Wasatch. 11,068 feet elevation, at least 3 miles round trip, and 2,700 feet gain (if we can drive to the trailhead). High clearance vehicles required. Expect an early morning start for the drive up Squaw Peak Road. Anticipate scrambling, exposure, and a moderate pace. As a group we will also consider adding some hiking millage and gain by also visiting Provo East Peak and/or Freedom Peak. As suggested by public health authorities, be prepared for social distancing, symptom questions, and use of hand sanitizer and face coverings (buffs work well while recreating).
