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.

    It was fun to meet you in Utah that last week of summer. Thanks for taking photos of my son. I hope you enjoyed your trip to Utah and will come back again soon to enjoy the mountains and national forests in the north or any of the five incredible national parks in the south!

    My 13 year old son, Isaac, will be excited to see these pictures. Thank you!
