So, it turns out our girls are tough enough to handle the backpacking part, but not tough enough to handle all the bugs. (This was mostly Hermione, not Tillie who was pretty great the whole time!) 😂 So, we went backpacking today without the camping part 🤣🏕🤷🏻‍♀️ #backpackingutah #highuintas #backpackingwithoutthecamping #backpackinggirls #mydramaticdaughter #myfunnyhermione #toomanybugs

Six 12ers go down in the High Uintas over the weekend. Just because there's a 70% chance of storms and there are 20+ miles over talus doesn't mean it can't get done. #kirkproject #listsofjohn #gobigorgohome #arcteryx #arcteryxdenver #ospreypacks #highuintas #peaks #12ers #callousedmind

We backpacked to Red Castle this weekend! It was so beautiful, intense, and awe-inspiring! I love my wife @hutch33 for always being my tugboat! 30 miles in 3.5 days! #ilovehiking #iloveutah #beautahful #redcastlelake #strongerme #iamabadass #backpacking #goatworthy #highuintas #highuintalovers

The High Unitas put on an impressive show once the storm passed and the sun went down! It pays to stay after the sun goes below the horizon, you get some pretty epic pastel and blue hour vibes! . . . . . #ourplanetdaily #discoverearth #earthfocus #earth #earthpix #roamtheplanet #earthoutdoors #visualsofearth #stayandwander #moodnation #wildernessculture #earthstoke #exploreourearth #sonyalpha #uintas #highuintas #mirrorlake #mirrorlakehighway #mirrorlakeutah #bluehour #bluehourphotography #pastels #sunset #utah #werutah #utahunique #utahisrad

Today is the day I’ve been waiting for since late last year. It’s the day us Moms leave behind our baby carriers and go into the wild for an entire week of high country bliss. It’s a grown ups only trip. It’s funny how I’m so excited for a week away, but when it actually comes I am getting all the feels leaving my youngest. My older two have friends and stuff to do, but this little adventure buddy..... I won’t see him for a week 💔😭. It gives me a little bit of anxiety leaving him. But I’m sure he will be great. He loves his Daddy so much and they get to hang out together. It’s important we take time for ourselves. My week is going to be filled with one helluva climb and snow. Goody! It will also consist of some of the most beautiful country. Wish us luck. We have a big backpacking extravaganza planned out. Hopefully the snow doesn’t cause us too much trouble. Happy Monday everyone. Signing off now.

Sunrise at Azure Lake Rise and shine, gorges sunrise at this lake in the high Uinta mountains. Cristal clear waters with no winds is why I like being an early bird. #sunrise #highuintas #uintamountains #reflection #mirror #lake #forest #camping #remoteness #tranquility #chill #rocks

My teen isn’t an outdoor enthusiast. He is more of a sports guy. Didn’t get that from me. He recently decided he really likes fishing. I don’t do that either, but when he asked to go to Cabelas so he can buy a fishing pole that he can backpack with and possibly hike into a lake I grabbed my keys. We went on a nice hike. Soaked up some views of different backcountry lakes and even got caught in a downpour. Everyone had fun being outside. If fishing is what he needs to encourage him to get outdoors and explore I will take him to all the backcountry lakes. Here he is just kicking back. See that chair? It’s the @keltybuilt camp chair. I had an ultra light camp chair that is great, but this thing rocks! You can rock back and forth in it. Ahhhhhh 🙌🏻. I was introduced to it by @lauravwheatley It doesn’t look like much at first, but once you try it out you’ll be hooked. Will definitely be taking it on my backpacking trip next week.

One more from last weekend.

This weekend Powell is in my sights. I’m daydreaming of last weekend’s amazing trip and unsuccessful summit of the Lovenias. The hours are creeping by... I cannot wait to get back into the Uintas 😍 . . . . #somewhereoutintheuintas #highuintas #uintas #lovenias #keeppubliclandsinpublichands wilderness #backpacking #daydreaming #ilovethemountains #mountainfreak #lifeisbetterinhighplaces #utahisrad #beautahful 📷 @ct.perfall

Sense of Unity (Poem): At the brink of a new day, not a person yet bats an eye The dark of the night still abounds, yet the morning is nigh Lack of light is all around; consuming, engulfing, raging with it's might There's no doubt in my mind ideas flowing and at my height, All of my awareness shot, but still engrossed by the tone Ideas tell me that I shouldn't matter, what's it to be alone? At the brink of twilight, darkness at it's strongest, Does it softly, yet powerfully, pull me in, intentions grimmest The sun did start to rise! And as if by magic in the midst of twilight does it advise Morning is near, with hope from not any else, but with light Intentions, likewise strong, coming around to cure the blight Misery, grief, loneliness, and trouble ran away. Peace be with you child, easily be I with you, it is a new day. Not long after are you filled, your cup fills to it's top In a dark life there can it not be without light to shine the way Keeping each other around, you see the one, for which you look, and yet, Do you choose to keep one of the two at bay... But need you realize that yin and yang, moon and sun, are both needed, and so shall your needs be met

We love it when collectors share their pieces in their final resting place. “Madame Butterfly” in the high Uintas. Love it!

When many people picture Utah, they think of southern Utah with desert and rock formations. And that’s cool. But my favorite part is the mountain meadows and hidden lakes...the Rocky Mountain Utah. The High Uintas and the northeastern part of the state ❤️ it is a must-see in your lifetime, you won’t be disappointed. #highuintas #rockymountains #fishingrocks

Though I'm not fully committed to which cook setup I am going to bring to Utah, this one is likely. I have had this Primus Technotrail stove for almost 15 years and it has been all over the country in all different environments. The Toaks 800ml pot is lightweight, durable and the stove and small can of gas fit right inside for a small, compact camp kitchen. #utah #highuintas #mountains #backpacking #backpackermag #backpacker #overnight #compact #lightweight #ultralight #stove #cooking #cook #campkitchen #primus #msr #titanium #camping #campingtrip #hiking #hike #adventure #themountainsarecalling #optoutside #flyfishing #flyfishinglife #outdoorlife #rei #puremichigan #wanderlust
