As many of you know, this winter has so far been a severely dry one in the inter mountain west. There currently isn’t enough snow to Nordic ski in town, so I headed to the nearby Uintas. I’ve hiked up here in the summers many times, but it was my first time to explore it in the winter. It’s only about an hour away but feels like another world. I am daily amazed and grateful to live in Utah where there still remains so much public land.
