We always go to the Uintas to camp, because it’s relatively close, and so very woodsy-mountainsy. But we like to explore new places too, so we treked on up near Powder Mountain to a place that looked pretty good on the map. The bummer part is that lots of other people had that same crazy idea, and there was no room at the inn. So we drove around for a while, detouring at a road that read “National Forrest access.” To me, that means there’s probably lots of little roads here and there that one could pull off on and find a little spot to camp. Neeuuop.
Long boring story short we ended up back in the Uintas 4 hours later, and vowed never to try a new place again. At least not until next time.
We camped and hiked for the weekend with Michelle, Sam, and Soph, and had quite a nice time chllin’ in the woods. We even had to swat at some mosquitos, which I thought were extinct here in Utah. What? What’s that I don’t hear from my Minnesota friends?
Tory and Soph are starting to become real troopers in the field, both hiking most of the way there and back. I think we made it all of 3 miles in! Actually, I carried Tory most of the way back on my shoulders after he fell into the drink and soaked himself from the belly down.
