UINTA MOUNTAINS


Unita Mountains, Utah

The Unita Mountains are located in the North East portion of Utah and are home to a impressive concentration of thirteeners and some deep cave systems.

The day prior we were in the desert and now we are about 11,400 Ft. up in the Mountains with over a foot of snow on the ground.

The mountains were absolutely gorgeous and I was amazed to see how this all looked when we actually got to the Summit of one of them.

This particular mountain was more of a walk up that did not require any technical equipment which made for a great but huffy puffy walk for this low lander!

We could see for over 20-30 miles in either direction which was a range of mountains that extended as far as we could see.

I really enjoyed being up here at the top of the mountain and I am looking forward to returning to this area to summit more of these ranges and knock off some of the thirteeners in this region.

There are also some interesting cave systems in the regional area further north and to the east that I am looking forward to visiting in the near future.

 Also in the plans is to summit some major systems including the tetons, mt. baker, and rainier next year so this will be a good place to practice.

Unfortunately the Uinta's don't quite open back up until around April or may due to the massive amount of snow that they receive so we will have to wait on returning back until we are able to make an approach.
