I will make a chart showing the 11,000 foot peaks, but other than that, it looks like you have it covered.

Good. Lots of typos to weed out, and what's left then are nice but not essential add-ons, from botany or survey marks and to the lesser summits left undescribed. I any case it's largely an exercise in futility since this really isn't an SPers kind of a range. Well, you know how many summit logs and images are posted there :)

Mosquitoes abound, what about "meshki"?

Not sure what the word means, Jacek. Skeeters? Of course in the height of mosquito season, one is better off with some DEET. West Nile virus is officially here, too.

My father and his fellow gulag prisoners brought the word from Vorkuta so I thought it was Russian. I understood why they remembered the insects so well while I was pruning pines by a lake in Norway one summer. They're like tiny (1-2mm) flies, their swarms like black smoke, the blood seems to set rather slowly after a bite.

No, that's in proper Polish. English world is blackflies, and Russian is moshka. No, they aren't a problem in Utah, their main areas in the US are closer to Canadian border.

Thanks Tomek! It can only be so wild with 2 million people living an hour or two away. But even on a busy summer weekend, it is still easy to find hours of solitude in these mountains.
