The drive up to the Uinta Mountains is pleasant and peaceful. There are tall trees lining the road with the mountain range in view. It is a beautiful sight even before reaching the Uintas.

The rocks make for a rocky terrain after reaching the Uinta Mountain. It is a popular recreation area for people with ATV's (all terrain vehicles) to get out and enjoy nature at its finest. There are many lakes and even water falls in the area as well as the regular mountain scenery.

The clear, blue sky offers a brilliant contrast to the mountain with its rocks and trees.

The Uinta Mountains (/juːˈɪntə/ yoo-IN-tə) are an east-west trending chain of mountains in northeastern Utah extending slightly into southern Wyoming in the United States. As a subrange of the Rocky Mountains, they are unusual for being the highest range in the contiguous United States running east to west and lie approximately 100 miles (160 km) east of Salt Lake City. The range has peaks ranging from 11,000 to 13,528 feet (3,353 to 4,123 m), with the highest point being Kings Peak, also the highest point in Utah. The Mirror Lake Highway crosses the western half of the Uintas on its way to Wyoming. [Wikipedia]

The colors of Autumn are evident in the Uinta Mountains and make for a beautiful sight.

Getting outdoors to enjoy the beauties of nature is always a good idea. Utah has many areas where people may experience nature.

The Uinta Mountains and the nearby area of Mirror Lake are recommended for people who want to see the beauty of nature.
