    I was at Christmas Meadows not too long ago with my family. I even took my boys backpacking from that trail head.

    Excellent report and beautiful scenery. I fell in love with Utah this summer. Didn't make it to this part, but enjoyed the Sundance area and later the Dinosaur area. Quiet a contrast between the two. I think I could spend a month or two in Utah, no problem.

    That is the best reason to take that shot! Mom's like to know that their boys are having fun.
    Nice report. Thanks for sharing. I wish I could have made it up there this year. I had it planned for the end of July but there was too much snow up there at that time.

    Great trip report; thanks for posting. I love the uintas and can't wait to get up there. I'm a Scoutmaster too -- lots of fun taking the boys out. We did a 50-miler this year too, along the Arizona Trail. Thanks for taking us along your trip.

    We were worried, but decided to just go a see. We planned to just find an alternative route if the snow turned out to be too bad. But, as luck would have it, the snow had mostly melted, and we even got a week of no rain, which is very unusual for that area.

    Thanks for all the kind remarks.
