High Uintas - Middle Basin

Several weeks back, I was eying an opportunity to get my wife out further into the backcountry for one last backpacking trip before school started for our kids.  We circled the 13th - 15th for a few reasons: 1) my mother-in-law was available to take the kids, 2) the Perseids would be active, and 3) it was mid-week for some solitude.

Mount Timpanogos - August 2013

Being my first post of this new blog in which I intend to document what I hope to be many hiking and backpacking adventures throughout Utah's famed Wasatch Mountains, other parts of Utah's backcountry and beyond, I thought: What better way to start the blog off with than with a chronicle of a trip up what is arguably the crown jewel of the Wasatch Range – Mount Timpanogos?
