The High Uintas

I’m in Utah this week, and was able to get up into the mountains mid-afternoon on Friday. At the recommendation of a friend, I drove up the Mirror Lake Highway east of Kamas. I took a short hike to Wall Lake. Along one side of the lake is a rock wall, hence the name of the lake. There were some kids climbing that wall, which could only lead to one thing… jumping off:

Here’s the rest of that photo to give you a sense of scale:

And just before landing in the cold water:

That it’s for now; I’ve got plenty more exploring to do.
