Description

I SHOT THIS ON A OFF TRAIL HIKE UP OVER THE BACK SIDE OF HIDDEN VALLEY WEST AND JUST EAST OF THE UTE TRAIL. THIS IS ATY ABOUT 11000 FT JUST AT TREE LINE. I AM SURE MANY OF THEIR HORSES DRANK OUT OF THESE HIGH MT PONDS BACK IN THE DAYS WHEN THE UTE'S MADE THEIR JOURNEY FROM THEIR SUMMER TO THIER WINTER RANGE. THERE WAS A THICK CLOUD COVER THIS DAY. YOU WOULD THINK THIS WAS FOG BUT IT IS HIGH ENOUGH THAT IT IS THE CLOUDS WHICH I WAS IN, ABOVE AND BELOW THE WHOLE DAY. THE ELK WERE BED DOWN EVERYWHERE ENJOYING THE PEACE THE SOLITUDE. IT WAS A VERY QUIT STILL DAY. ONE OF MY FAVORITE AREAS AS JUST BELOW THIS AREA IS WHERE UPPER HIDDEN VALLEY SKI RESORT USE TO BE. I USE TO SKI UP THERE EVERY DAY BEFORE THEY CLOSED IT DOWN MANY YEARS AGO. IT IS ALSO ONE OF THE FEW PLACES LEFT YOU CAN GO AND NOT SEE ANYONE ALL DAY ON A CONSISTANT BASIS.
