Lofty Peak - Uinta Mountains

Lofty Peak 11,158'

A-1 Peak
Kletting Peak
Agassiz Peak
Ruth Lake

We started the hike at Ruth Lake, then continued to Lofty Pass. The hike is beautiful and easy the all the way to the pass, then it's only about 15 minutes of difficulty up mid sized boulders. It only took about an hour and a half to hike up.
It was about an hour and a half drive from Salt Lake.

On the top, it started to rain, and then it begun to hail, and then it begun to really hail. It was a pretty intense for a while. Luckily, it only lasted for about 15 minutes. It could have been much worse.

Afterwards, we stopped in Kamas and ate at the burger shop, "Dick's". Thiago didn't want to eat there, I told him it was just the name of the place, not what the food was made out of.

I just copied this off of the sign:
