The weekend of 1 Oct 11, Tracy and I finally took a backpacking trip to the East Fork of the

Burnt Fork Trail (Google Map).  We took a round-about way of getting there, though, because I

wanted to look for some good fall colors.  We found some at the trusty Soapstone Pass.  We

drove over Soapstone and down to the Mirror Lake Highway, and then headed north up to

Forest Road 58.  The Burnt Fork Trail wasn't on my list of possible hikes, but I had enjoyed

China Meadows, and this was just on the other side of the mountain from China Meadows, so I

thought it would be a lot like it.  It wasn't.  The trail was fine, really, but it was obviously a very

wet trail, so it would be miserable to hike any other time of the year than late, late summer.

There weren't as many big meadows like the Broadbent Meadow on the other side of the

mountain, so there also weren't as many good views.  We found some old cabins off the trail a

few miles in, and we camped there.  It had been raining on us a lot of the day, but late in the

evening the rain broke and we were greeted to a nice rainbow.  We could also hear an elk

bugle off in the distance a little in the evening.  It wasn't a bad hike, but the Uintas have better

trails, so I doubt we'll be back there.
