Kings & South Kings
From the not-so-frequently-visited Yellowstone Drainage, this offers a unique perspective of the two highest peaks in Utah ---> Kings Peak (left) and South Kings Peak. Taken from the Smiths Fork Pass Trail about a mile below the southern side of the pass, the elevation where I am standing is about 11,600 feet (3,570 meters) give or take a few.

From this angle (looking east) it sure looks like South Kings is higher but it is not. September 2003. Fuji Velvia.

gjagielsNice shot!


Voted 10/10

It is funny that South Kings looks higher, even from the summit of Wilson Peak, South Kings Peak still looks higher and is only 1/4 of a mile closer than Kings. Nice shot of a beautiful area!

Thanks. Makes you wonder if the 1966 satellite measurements are correct! Okay, maybe not. :)
