Reminds me a little of Glacier NP

The ridges of the mountains make me think of Glacier. Great picture too!

Take me back there NOW!

ZeeJay,

Wow, I visited the Uintahs for my first time last summer. I was just awestruck by that area. In this photo, you've really captured the essence of the High Uintahs.

Cheers!

Re: Take me back there NOW!

Thanks, I'm looking forward to the snow melting and heading back out there.

Okay, let's settle this ...

When I grew up in northern Utah, everybody I
talked to referred to them as the "Uintas."

When was the 'h' added?

Does the 'h' stand for, "that was one "h***"
of a snowstorm that you guys/gals had !!! ??

Re: Okay, let's settle this ...

Larry,

When you grew up in N. Utah, they didn't even have readin' and "ritin'" in the Rocky Mountains yet! KIDDING!

Sorry about the spelling error. You know what life at high altitude does to the mind...

Re: Very nice!

Thanks, this is one area that I think is much prettier in the summer than the winter.

Re: Very nice!

I see where you're coming from. I especially
remember how beautiful 'Elkhorn Crossing' was.

But, is there a "logical way" to deal with the clouds of mosquitoes ??

I always heard that the potassium content
of bananas helps in warding off the pesky
little critters ! ???

Re: Very nice!

I eat a banana every single day and I have to say it doesn't help :(

I never get tired of seeing pictures of these mountains. I really need to come back some day and do some more hiking/climbing there. Great Shot!

Looks real wet

Was up there about two weeke prior to your trip. That whole section in the photo was darn near impassable! I dunked one shoe in thick mud on the way down.

Re: Looks real wet

I choose getting scratched up over getting muddy. With that trail being so heavily used, you'd think they'd put down some bog bridges.

Re: Looks real wet

Hah! I forgot we had traded some posts last June. I got scratched up too but at least those bushes are not bad to walk through.
