Memorial Weekend Camping

One of the many things I love about Utah is it's beauty. I can never get enough of it! So when my friend Zach invited me to come up camping to his favorite place up in the high Uintas I didn't hesitate. I had never been there before but it was beautiful. It is about 1 1/2 hours from Salt Lake. You go up past Park City on towards Heber then keep going up and over the mountains and you are there! How's that for directions?
We left Saturday afternoon and came home on Sunday so it was a short trip, but it was definitely worth it. There ended up being 6 of us who went up. We brought up Zach's trailer which ended up being a very good thing because it rained off and on the whole time we were there. Luckily we were able to get a fire started and keep it going throughout the night. We made tin foil or "hobo" dinners which turned out super yummy! For those of you who don't know what a hobo dinner is, let me explain what our variation was: You take a big strip of tinfoil and form it into a bowl of sorts. Take chunks of seasoned chicken, potatoes, carrots, onions, broccoli and whatever other vegis you like, put them all together in your tin bowl and wrap it in another 2 layers of foil and throw it on the coals of the fire. Turn every 10 minutes for about 40 - 50 minutes and tada! Dinner is done! Follow that up with some smoores and that's how it's done!
If anyone is interested in knowing the exact location, I can track that down for you. Sorry the pictures have a bit of a red glow to them...not really sure what happened there.
