Bald Mountain, Uintas

Uinta Mountains
Mirror Lake
Bald Mountain: 11,945'
2 miles each way

It took us a little under an hour to reach the summit, and that was with me stopping every few minutes to take pictures. There was snow around the top of the first part of the trail that forced us to go off the trail and around it.
One of the coolest things about this peak, is that you can see almost all of the Wasatch. This would be even better as a sunrise peak, too bad I'm not a morning person.
