wasatchwill's Instagram Photo - Refuge from an approaching storm... Actually, the edge of a lake under a rock overhang is definitely not a place to take shelter from a storm and for that reason, we did not linger here. We also got lucky in that the storms around us stayed clear of where we were.

wasatchwill's Instagram Photo - My sister, @melindacollins2041, was in town visiting from Phoenix this week. She wanted to do a 5 mile hike and had never been to the Uintas. So I took her around the Clyde Lake Loop yesterday evening, one of my favorite short hikes up there.

wasatchwill's Instagram Photo - "Men go back to the mountains, as they go back to sailing ships at sea, because in the mountains and on the sea they must face up." - Henry David Thoreau

In this shot, @jacksobrien and I were in the midst of seeking and scouting a route over a pass between Allsop and Priord Lakes. This chute was our 2nd we ascended and it turned out to be a dead end as well. 3rd time was the charm though as we found a safer passage over the ridge with the next chute to the north.

wasatchwill's Instagram Photo - "The lakes are something which you are unprepared for; they lie up so high, exposed to the light, and the forest is diminished to a fine fringe on their edges, with here and there a blue mountain, like amethyst jewels set around some jewel of the first water, - so anterior, so superior, to all the changes that are to take place on their shores, even now civil and refined, and fair as they can ever be." -Henry David Thoreau

wasatchwill's Instagram Photo - Don't let this picture fool you. The trail to Allsop Lake would have been more accurately named if it were "Allslop". These bridges and boardwalks only lasted for the first mile or two. After that, the trail became 7 miles of mostly mud, marshes, and cow pies all over. Indeed, it was almost all slop. But those flowers!

wasatchwill's Instagram Photo - If you watch a broadcast called "Music and the Spoken Word" every Sunday morning you'll see montages with images of places like this accompanied by beautiful music where songs like "For the beauty of the Earth" are often sung by the world renowned Mormon Tabernacle Choir. Yesterday morning, however, I was lucky enough to stand in just such a place in person where I was able to see the beauty of nature and listen to its own music. Indeed, we live on a beautiful Earth.

wasatchwill's Instagram Photo - One last shot from Lone Peak last weekend before I start dropping beauty bombs from this weekend's Uinta trip. I've only seen pictures of the Sierras in California, and the Lone Peak Wilderness area reminds me of the pictures I've seen of the Sierras, only on a much smaller scale.

wasatchwill's Instagram Photo - Off to do more of this for the weekend. Backpacking that is, not Lone Peak again. Heading up into the Uintas for the first time this year with some friends for an annual meetup. In other words, I have a lot to do to make it up to @wickertjess for holding down the fort in my absence. She's incredible, even if she doesn't think she is sometimes.

wasatchwill's Instagram Photo - A cabin fit for outlaws... allegedly. From 1960 through 1967, the Allen brothers and Alan Summerhays would come up by horseback into what is now the Lone Peak Wilderness, bringing with them supplies to construct what is now known as 'Outlaw Cabin' using down timber abundant in the area.

wasatchwill's Instagram Photo - Apparently this peak is a little lonely, so I thought I'd come up and give it some company. Lots of other people had the same idea as well. What friendly people we all were. That also completes 3 of the 7 most prominent peaks of Utah Valley for me on the year. #lonepeak #utahpeakbaggers

wasatchwill's Instagram Photo - Back in high school, I was known as the kid who wouldn't stop running. Some would say I was obsessed with it. Fall was the best because of cross country and summer 5ks were fun because of all the swag. Track in the spring was just something done to stay in shape for the summer and fall. In the years after high school, I went on to run a number of trail races and a couple of marathons. Since then however, all that running has given way to more hiking and backpacking. 
Perhaps I'll add more running and racing back into my routine in the near future. But in the mean time, while watching this year's Freedom Fest run it was nice to reflect back on those years in high school running and racing with great friends. In many ways, we were independent, each running our own race, striving for personal bests. And yet, together, we were still a team. Much like the USA. Individual and independent states, but united as one big country.
