The Uintas

Post by dbhguru » Tue Jul 12, 2011 9:18 pm

WNTS/ENTS,

Yesterday Monica and I left Pocatello at 9:30AM and headed south. Our route took us over the southern Unitas, a range of the Rockies that is partly in Utah, partly in Colorado, and partly in Wyoming. Most of the range is in Utah. Kings Peak, Utah's highest mountain is in the Uintas. It stands at 13,528 feet.

Our route took us well south of the High Uintas. I'm pretty pooped right now and won't do much reporting, but I'd like share 6 images from the Flaming Gorge area. The first is near Sheep Canyon Geological Loop. Guess what? Yep mountain sheep.

The next image looks down on the Flaming Gorge Reservoir. Note the range of colors.

The area is awash in fascinating, colorful formations. When I get to Durango, I'll do a better job of presenting and describing what we saw. But to sum it up - one dazzling scene after another.

One final image: a look at the road across the southern Uintas we were traveling.

Bob, Another beautiful set of photos and I love the Ram shot! Utah has such a wonderful amount of colored scenery. Wish I could get around like you guys do. Larry

Bob,

Great shots here! "The Uintas"--I have trouble not thinking of Johnny Unitas!!!
