The High Uintas (named after the Uintaat tribe) is a mountain range that contains the highest peak in Utah, countless lakes, exposed colorful quartzite rocks and a unique ecosystem making up the largest alpine area in the Intermountain West. Elk, mule dear, moose, mountain goat, coyote, black bear, bighorn sheep, ptarmigan, river otter, pine martin, cougar and 75% of Utah’s bird species roam this land. Experiencing it in person the last few nights left me in deep appreciation for this designated wilderness area! Follow @renan_ozturk for more images of this majestic landscape.
