When I first saw this picture, I thought it
was Alaska's Arctic tundra.

Do you ever see any "edible" plants out there,
such as huckleberries or wild onions ???

Hey El,

Not being a sheep, I did not see any plants I'd care to eat on that trip, but I wasn't really looking either. The elevation that picture was taken at was about 11640' which is 150' higher than anything in Salt Lake County, and you know what those peaks look like.

Yes, they look like one hell of a place to
get stranded in a snowstorm !!!

This type of terrain is fairly common on the range's less rugged side (e.g. Whiterocks River drainage east) ... but is rather pleasant to walk.

Occasionally, as I have done several times on these high elevation ridges, one startles small groups (usually two to four head) of buck deer ... does, for some reason, seem mostly absent here.

But in walking these areas, the very distinctive alpine smells ... surely a combination of Krummholz spruce, alpine parsley and native grasses -- as well as other vegetative elements yet undefined and often carried by a fair breeze -- are unforgettable once in the nostril.

I haven't made it to the Whiterocks River area yet. It's on my list for next year.

I don't see too many deer in the Uintas, usually just an occasional moose, elk, and rarely a mountain goat. I have however, seen a lot of cows and sheep.

I love the contrast between the gentle ridges of the Uintas and the rugged ones of the Wasatch.
