    Highline To WFBF Part 6

    This trip first appeared on my blog as nine different parts. After doing five here, I was feeling I was stretching it out a bit more than I should have. So here the last four parts to this trip. After hiking around the lakes and going up and down the nearby cliffs we headed back to camp - I...

    Highline To WFBF part 5

    Having put seven plus miles of hiking with some moderately steep climbs I was beat. So the first thing I did was take off the pack and sit down and have some lunch. Unfortunately, lunch wasn't a medium rare steak . . . it was two Clif Bars, which is the case everyday of backpacking. One of...

    Highline to WFBF part 4

    After leaving the Gladys Lake area we hike through some nondescript areas and eventually to some high mountain meadows that were filled with beautiful wild flowers. This picture simply doesn't do this area justice. First off this meadow is huge. The trail bobs up and down for more than a...

    Highline Trail to WFBF part 3

    After finding the cairns and getting back on track, our objective was to get to the Upper Rock Creek Trail. There are several trails through the Rock Creek Drainage, but we wanted the upper trail. Like a bowl has a top rim, the Rock Creek Drainage has a top rim and we wanted the trail that goes...

    Highline Trail To WFBF Part 2

    After reaching the top of Rocky Sea Pass we started descending into the Rock Creek Drainage. It's from this side you can see where the pass gets it's name. Looking out over the Rock Creek Drainage while descending the rocky side of Rocky Sea Pass. See that pointy peak in the top middle of the...

    Buck Pasture (Uintas Mtn. Range) Utah

    Since I am new I thought I'd share my trip from July. This was my 1st backpacking trip of my life, and certainly not the last!! After driving over 100 miles my Twin brother (the photographer) and I saw that we still had many more miles to go. Daisy the dog and I ready for action at the...

    Dead Horse Lake and The Rock Creek Drainage July 2012

    So, with the summer heat in full swing in the desert and myself no longer living around the Monticello area and back up in Salt Lake, it was time to get back up to the mountains for some backpacking. My usual backpacking buddy Jared and I had planned a trip up the West Fork of the Blacks Fork to...

    West Fork Black's Fork 8/15-8/18

    There have been a lot of folks up this drainage this summer so I don't have a lot to add to what's already been posted. This was our first pack trip to the Uintas and it was certainly enough to whet our appetite for more. We had a late start the first day and due to the sheep grazing in the area...

    Backpacking to Dead Horse Lake.

    Was able to break away for the weekend and went backpacking to Dead Horse Lake. I have been going up there for about 4 years and this was the busiest I have ever seen it. Busy as in there was 3 other groups at the Lake. In the past we were lucky if we saw anyone else up there. Maybe I was just...

    West Fork Black's Fork, July 13-14 2012

    I'm not superstitious, but Friday the 13th proved to be bad luck. Since taking a new job a few months back, I've been looking forward to the first time off that would allow me a chance to take advantage of the favorable backpacking conditions in the Uintas this year. That came in the form of...

    Uintas: Highline TH to West Fork Black's Fork

    Here's another trip report from the archives, this one is from back in 2007, long before the days of packing around a fancy camera. This was the second time I did this awesome route, the first time I did it solo and forgot my camera in the truck that dropped me off! :facepalm: It was the most...
