lcarreauNice perspective...


Voted 10/10

Didn't realize the cliffs being that steep
above Cliff Lake!

Whoever it was who named the lakes and basins
of the High Uintas really knew what they were

IMHO. Excellent work, Zee-ster !!!

Thank you Larry! I think the cliffs look so steep in this picture that they even appear to curve over.

Thanks, it's a beautiful area and the high ridges don't see many visitors except for Kings Peak.

Call me sentimental, though; I like David Rose's proposed name for the anonymous peaks in the High Uintas. For example, for Henrys Fork Peak, I like Fortress Peak... hey, that's just me. Also 1st and 2nd Geminis, Pyramid, Pinnacle.... and so on.

It's like this, if I had first learned of these peaks through David Rose, then I think I would prefer his names too, but I do not have his book and all information acquired was through summitposters' contributions (most notably Scott), so Scott's names are those that stick with me.

I was surprised to notice Scott's names in use on the
National Weather Service's maps provided by google. You have to zoom in to see the other names besides Painter Peak. You would think that at this level of detail, they would have chosen to point out Kings Peak, not the much more obscure Painter Peak.

Ahh... I now understand your feelings pertaining to those peak names. It will be interesting to see how the contention with regard to all of these place names will be resolved in future USGS maps. Keep those great Uintas photos coming! Thanks!
