A ride up Lake Fork Mountain (locally called Petty Mountain, for reasons lost in the mists of time) provided views of Twin Pots Reservoir, 2000 feet below. Twin Pots is one body of water, but it is so named because the water fills two deep holes. Or so my Utah Place Names book says.
and forested trails with clear stream crossings.
We ended the ride at Transfer Spring. (Again, I have no idea where the name came from.) A full trough provided a drink for the horses.
Here are some of the wildflowers we saw along the way:
Rocky Mountain Bee Plant
We rode 15 miles, reaching 9600 feet on July 2. We saw snow above that level, so we're still waiting for access to the higher trails!
