This weekend I escaped to the Uintas, a high mountain range in Northern Utah, with my wife and her family. While my wife, after two years of marriage, has become a veteran of the camping routine, her family are self-defined non-campers. For being such non-campers, I would say they handled themselves excellently, even the two-year-old was successful at dirt playing and sleeping through the 40℉ night. It was great to spend some time in seclusion with such great company.

Some truly stunning vistas can be experienced in this high country, pockmarked by hundreds of small lakes. Visit if you have the chance, you will never forget it.
