Hiking the Unita Mountain Range

Saturday, November 10, 2012

Come along with me as we hike our way in the Unita Mountain Range, Utah.

October 5, 2012 ready to climb Bald Mountain in the Unita Mountain Range of Utah. Notice the ski gloves and hat. It is 28 degrees!

Just 2 miles up! Whew! What a hike!

It was important to hydrate often during the ascent to avoid altitude sickness or passing out.

After hiking 2 miles up 12,000 feet of Bald Mountain , we successfully made it to the top!

A seat with a spectacular view of Mirror Lake!

My son was our mountain guide.

After our descent, we walked the boardwalk along Mirror Lake.

Bald Mountain in background.

Get ready to accompany me on my next adventure to the Grand Tetons!

    Loved this! That walk along the ledge looked a bit scary to say the least! I would love to do this.

    Thank you for sharing. That looks like a treacherously narrow path to the top! I'm envious of your pending hike in the Tetons. Been there, done that, desperately want to do it again!

    What a beautiful hike! I am glad you shared the pictures. I spent my childhood and teen years hiking the mountains at home (Colorado), and it is my goal to be able to do it again. This is a neat little motivator to keep on moving. :)

    Wow... that is GORGEOUS!!!! (And, a little jealous.... I wish my dh would hike with me!) I really want to do that someday! And, the Grand Tetons... well, I went with my mother & daughter 2 summers ago and we LOVED it. But, we just drove around - we didn't hike up any mountains! emoticon

    Thanks for the link and I LOVED hiking with you via the wonderful pictures. I also liked the temperature...when I hiked in Utah in July it was in the 90's, but it was also in the southeastern part of the state. Two miles isn't a lot of miles unless you are going straight up and it looks like you had a pretty good elevation gain. Congratulations!!! I'll be looking for the Grand Tetons and although I have vacationed there it was before my hiking days, so I'd love to go on a hike with you there.

    Breathtaking! I have never been able to breathe in the higher altitudes, so this is the only way I can see what I can't visit. Thanks for sending this to me.

    Utah looks so much like Colorado. What a beautiful sight! I don't know if I could do it, too many off of the side of the mountain shots :) It looks like you enjoyed yourself. The Grand Tetons huh, this should help prep you for that! Thank you for sharing!
