Hayden Peak



I've had my eye on a peak in the Uintas for quite some time - Hayden Peak. It is one of the most photographed peaks in the Uintas, serving as a backdrop to heavily visited Mirror Lake. With my wife's family having a cabin just south of the Wyoming border along the Mirror Lake Highway, a junior high summer science camp trip, and having camped and hiked a number of other times in the area, I've traveled through the shadows of Hayden Peak many, many times. So when a local group on Facebook organized a hike up to Hayden yesterday and having the day open, I jumped at the chance to join along.
