    Keep it simple. The more crap you have and the more complicated it is, the more likely it is to break. Get back to basics man!

    Yap, that's what I was wondering!

    You guys ever hike up to Christmas Meadow with I think it was Amethyst Lake? Or up West Fork Black's Fork past Mt.Beulah to Dead Horse lake? Nice country!
    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.
    Romans 8:18,21-22

    Re: Northern Utah / Aug 1-3 / Help me pick a spot

    Sam - I will be a little farther up 150 the last week of this month. I have heard this was a bad bug year up there. I'm hoping it isn't as bad as I have heard.
    Hiking in the Uintas is always a good trip, even if the skeeters are thick. I have three trips planned up there this year. If I can add more, I will...

    I have seen Amethyst Lake before. It has been a couple years though. I might have to go back again soon.

    Soapstone is about 15 miles up Mirror Lake highway from Kamas, Utah. There are plenty of camping spots (around that area, from Shady Dell, Cobblerest, etc) if you want to stay in a improved spot, and head up Soapstone basin for off road areas. Please note that if you get in the off-road areas, there is often four-wheelers off in the logging roads. The Murdock basin turn off (Mile marker 21) is another option off road. Mile Marker 13 you can go up by Anderson Lake, and make your way to the backside of Trial Lake.

    If you have time, the meadows up by Whitney Res is great. Moose, elk, deer migrate there often.

    Sorry for the delay - I didnt subscribe to this thread.

    Christmas Meadow is getting to close to the rental recreational areas - therefore a little too noisy for my liking.

    I'll be up in that neck of the woods for the next 4 days. I head up to camp steiner this afternoon. Our camp is just a few hundred feet from pearl lake. I'll be out there fishing tomorrow morning!

    Man was that an awesome trip. My boy went up a couple days before me with his scout troop. He setup his hammock and tarps all by himself. I couldn't be prouder. When it rained on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, he was the driest and warmest in the camp.

    I forgot to take pictures of our hammocks but it was one of the best camping trips I have ever been on, even with the first day of torrential downpours.

    Good to hear - Soapstone pass is a beautiful drive off road through tall trees and open meadows with sunflowers. Lots of moose and deer graze there. The same is for the road out to Whitney.

    Just need to get those stupid bettles out of the area - loosing too many trees.

    We saw a herd of mountain goats on our way home. Pretty cool!
