Route Climbed: Chepeta Lake Date Climbed: July 8, 2005
An interesting area with friendly folks at Chepeta Lake. They wanted to know how a Washingtonian knew about this lake. I could only smile as I knew that trying to explain my county highpointing quest would be looked upon as rather strange.
Route Climbed: Papoose Lake Date Climbed: August 20, 2003
Not much of a summit, but more of a high altitude plateau/rounded bump. The navigation is simple, and the crowds are small again for a UT county highpoint. I almost got zapped on the way down after running nearly full tilt to get back to Papoose lake. The Uintas would seem to be a good place for a back to the future movie with all the lightning in summer...
The approach road is long and a little bumpy, but otherwise very scenic from Roosevelt.
