Uinta Highline Trail - Day 1

Among the adventures at the top of my bucket list has been the Uinta Highline Trail.  An attempt to do it last year with another friend fell through.  Due to the logistics involved with a long drive to eastern end, it can be difficult to arrange a shuttle, even from loved ones.  When a fellow Internet forum member and campus colleague, Adam, made such a shuttle arrangement with a neighbor and reached out and invited me to join him and his brother, Steve, this last August, I was thrilled.

Family Backpacking: Ruth Lake

Two years ago, our family ventured out on its first backpacking trip together as a family.  That was to Ruth Lake in the Uinta Mountains.  Wanting to get one last adventure with the family in before school started, we opted for another backpacking trip, and once again, to Ruth Lake.  This time, as with the more recent Clyde Lake trip, we had an additional member of our party.
