Here's a view of Marsh Peak (12,200 feet, still snow-covered) from the summit of yesterday's ride to Little Mountain, 8500 feet. The trailhead is a 30 minute drive NE of our Roosevelt home.
The temperature reached 70 degrees F but with the wind blowing at 20mph (hat-snatching speed), it still felt cool.
paintbrush and phlox,
On the way back, the view of the Uinta Basin was hazy.
If you look for a spot marked by an arrow on the green plateau, you might see our trailer. The BLM (Bureau of Land Management) planted crested wheat grass there a few years ago to replace native grasses that had been overgrazed to extinction. The new planting has done well, and even supports a controlled cattle-grazing lease. Antelope and deer (not to mention our horses) enjoy the grass as well.
