    High in the Uintah's: Grandaddy Basin

    Went on a over nighter (not enough time), to the vast expanse of the Grandaddy Basin in Utah's High Uintah's. It was the first day of the Elk hunt so there were quite a few of them roaming around. One of them had shot a mountain goat with some wicked cool horns! We arrived as the sun was setting and barely got set up at by Lake Betsy before it got pitch black dark.
    The next day consisted of basking in the sun, listening to woodpeckers and the stillness that the wilderness offers.
    All in all it was 9 miles round trip. The weather was amazing, the sky was so clear and the stars so bright you could see the reflections of them in the lake.
    It was probably the last time this season that the area could be accessed by me. The dirt road on on the side of the mountain already had a little snow and it was way sketchy when another vehicle was coming down the mountain.
    Needless to say, I can't get enough of the woods.

    Love it, good memories though I don't think I ever got to that particular basin. Is that south or north of the main divide?
    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.
