Split Mountain is located within Dinosaur National Monument near Vernal, Utah. We ride to the top (about 7600 feet) at least once every year.
Google Earth provides a view of our trail (in blue). As you can see, the mountain is split by the Green River passing through.
The photo above, taken from the top, looks down on the river as it passes through the split.
We ran into snow patches in the Ponderosa pine forest that starts a few hundred feet from the summit. We forged ahead.
To the northwest, the Uintas loomed.
The view to the northeast looks down on the meandering path of the Green River after it passes through the mountain and into the Uinta Basin.
Here's a panorama of the scene to the east, looking toward the mountains of Colorado.
We had a great ride, about 14 miles with 2700 feet of elevation gain and loss, completed in about 2.5 hours of working time. We were moving fast, but the horses are in great condition and didn't seem to mind. Daisy had to stay home, poor girl. No dogs are allowed in the Monument.
