Lets go cruising again!! Butterfield canyon is a beautiful scenic Utah byway. Butterfield Canyon is located in the southwest corner of the Salt Lake Valley. It winds to the top of the Oquirrh Mountains and connects to Middle Canyon which leads back down into Tooele. There is a side road at the summit which winds to the top of a peak that overlooks the Kennecott Utah Copper mine and the Salt Lake Valley to the east. The view to the west overlooks Tooele and the Tooele Valley. With A bit of luck we will still have a few Fall leaves in th lower parts of the two canyons. We will depart from Lowe's in West Jordan, cruise up Butterfield Canyon and take the side road to the overlook. Then leave the overlook and cruise down Middle Canyon into Tooele. Figured we could find some lunch in Tooele before using I-80 to cruise back into Salt Lake. Total drive time is about 3 hours not including the time spent at the overlook and lunch.
