Mount Olympus 
   Mount Olympus is one of the most prominent and recognizable mountains viewable from practically every location in the Salt Lake Valley. Mount Olympus is not the tallest peak along the Wasatch Front, but its unusual form and location makes it a popular destination for locals. 
   Mount Olympus is situated immediately south-east of downtown Salt Lake City. A distinctive feature of the mountain are its twin peaks and other outcroppings, the highest of which is called "Summit Peak" and which towers above the valley to an elevation of 9,030 feet (2,752 m). Thus, the peak looms about 4,800 feet (1,463 m) above the valley floor.  It is a strenuous 7-mile loop which I completed the third time on my 75th birthday. 4,200 ft. elevation gain
