Highest Guys in Utah

Ventured into the High Uinta Wilderness with aspirations of bagging the tallest mountain in Utah: Kings Peak.  Over the course of a 3-day backpacking trip, we got amazing fall weather, incredible mountain views, multiple blisters, bright starry nights……and logged just over 28 miles round-trip.  Great times in the mountains with no one else around….gotta love it!
