On July 16, 2006, Tracy and I decided to circumnavigate the Uintas.  Actually, we left the

house to do some relaxing hiking and camping...but it turned into a circumnavigation of the

Uintas.  We did some good 4x4 driving up Slope Mountain where I had done some hiking the

weekend before.  Slope Mountain is above the Granddaddy Basin, and it's above treeline.  We

had some great views of the Uintas and even all the way back to the Wasatch Front.  We did

some cross country hiking out there, and then just ended up back on the road to Stillwater

Reservoir.  While there we hiked a couple of miles up the Rock Creek Trail along the lake.

Then since we were both fighting off sore throats, we decided to get a hotel room instead of

camping.  The closest room was in Roosevelt, so we went ahead and drove east.  That's when

our plan turned into a circumnavigation.  We checked out the Uinta Canyon, before heading to

the hotel.  The next day we checked out a couple of other trailheads at the Highline Trail, and

then headed up to Flaming Gorge.  From there we headed back into the Unitas and checked

out a couple of other trailheads before getting involved in a really bad 4x4 road.  That's when I

blew a tire.  After spending 45 minutes doing my best pit crew impression, we finally got back

on the road.  But now I was spooked, since I didn't have another spare tire, so we bailed to the

closest paved road (that only took us about an hour to get to) and we headed home.  So we

ended up getting the south, east and half the north end of the Uintas.  We've done the west

end before, so now we just need to see the west half of the northern section of the mountains.

This was a great weekend, though, because we fell in love with the east end of the mountains,

and we got to check out several of the trailheads on my List of hikes we need to do.

Unfortunately, we didn't take many pictures...but we'll be back there.
