Peak Profile

P is for peaks.   We've perused a plethora of them on maps, observed their precise positions, studied all in perceptible proximity, and ascended a plurality.  Utah is a land of plentiful peaks, so possibilities are prolific. 
The premier Utah mountain is Kings Peak, the highest at 13,528 ft/4100m.  This photo was taken from the north, on Henry's Fork trail.
The above photo presents Mt. Timpanogas, as seen from Currant Creek Peak, July, 2009.
Here is a profile of peaks as seen from Tabby Mountain, November 2, 2009.
And this pretty puppy picture outlines the procession of the pearls of the Uinta Range. (Taken from Big Ridge, July, 2009.)
Herein, I proudly present and publish this primary post on Utah peaks.

  1. I'm no longer in a condition to walk to the top, but I would dearly have loved to walk around among them.

  5. These majestic peaks are lovely to behold but deadly to be scaled. I think I would just be satisfied admiring them from a distance.

  7. You sure have a lot of mountains in Utah. Grace and I just drove through the Sierra from Yosemite to Mono Lake. The scenery was fantastic. We were in a SUV, on horse back would be my fantasy.

    I'm also glad you posted these because I can see most of those peaks from my house but didn't know all of the names!

  13. Fabulous "P" post, Diane.. Don't think I've ever seen that many "P" words in a single paragraph... ha ha

    Love the PEAKS.... One of my joys is to climb to the top of a mountain and just sit there and meditate. Makes me feel closer to God.

    Great post. Thanks!
    Hugs,
    Betsy

    Hooray to Janie!
