Camping in the Uintas

I went camping this weekend with two of my brothers (Adam and Lance). We went up the Mirror Lake Highway in the Uintas to the Bald Mountain Trailhead — 10,759 feet. From there, we hiked about 3 miles in to Bench Lake to set up a primitive camp. The three mile hike actually takes you down a few hundred feet from the trailhead.

We had a great time relaxing, cooking over an open fire, fishing, exploring, and taking lots of pictures. The weather was perfect, but a little cold at night. We woke up to frost covering our sleeping bags and backpacks. We even watched about a dozen different bighorn sheep navigate the steep rock Notch Mountain across the lake from our campsite. On the way out, we spent a few minutes at the Provo River Falls, another pretty cool place.

I put about 30 pictures of our trip on our Picasaweb Album. Check it out, yo!

  1. What a great trip! Nice way to make some good memories too! Sorry it was so cold though. That’s the quickest way to ruin a good camping trip. The pictures look great! Glad you had fun!
