We reached the top of Taylor Mountain (9900 ft) last week. shown above. The snow has only recently melted at that altitude. The blue line on the Google Earth map above traces part of our 22 mile loop route.
Daisy found one patch of remaining snow to burrow in.
The horses took a breather at the top.
We took photos of the High Uintas. Sometime this summer, the snow-capped peaks ( 12,000-13,500 ft.) will become accessible. Maybe.
On the way down, we saw pasque flowers.
The elk saw us, too. Most of them ran away.
This mama stopped. Her yearling-sized calf apparently insisted on a quick snack before going anywhere.
