Enjoyable  Sucess!

I enjoyed this hike. After hours on the dirt road behind cowboys herding cattle I finally made it to the trailhead. Most of the road in has been burned on both sides from the Neola Fire. I think it probably took me two hours to do it roundtrip. I saw several deer, 4 mountain goats on the summit and best of all a bear cub ran in front of my Jeep on the way in, didn't see his momma though!

Nice trip  Sucess!

The hike itself isn't extremely exciting, but on our hike in past Chepeta Lake and some marshy areas we spotted three moose feeding in the lakes.

Route Climbed: Chepeta Lake Date Climbed: July 8, 2005  Sucess!

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.

My partner on this effort was Dennis Poulin.



The climb was more of a hike with a lot of talus negotiating.

Windy on the top and the highest point was at the shelfter with the witness BM.

Route Climbed: Papoose Lake Date Climbed: August 20, 2003  Sucess!

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.

Other than having nothing but County High Point grabbing to do this morning the hike is anticlimactic.
