CEDAR CITY — The decades-old stone building atop Brian Head Peak has had its roof ripped off by recent winds.

Brittany Feller, who is an avid ultramarathon runner, documented the damage with her cellphone camera when she visited the summit of the 11,312-foot mountain on Nov. 20.

Feller said she had made the hike as part of her running group's "No Rest November" challenge to log at least 10 kilometers every day of the month. She said she accessed the summit by hiking up Rick's Ridge in deep, thick snow along the spine of the mountain.

"It was very snowy, as we have received over six feet of snow in the last two months," she told Cedar City News, adding that there were no snowmobile or human tracks up the mountain, only deer and mountain lion tracks.
