High Ho Uintah Mountains

Derek, Caleb, Melinda, Baby Corbin and I just spent Thursday, Friday and Saturday at the Uintah Mountains. Very pretty, we were at the Lower Provo Campsite. For all of those people telling us it was cold, they were very wrong!! We had Siesta's because it was so hot, hot enough everyone is either sunburned or a very nice brown color, mostly sunburned. But go up the mountains for about 10 minutes and there is SNOW everywhere. How it could be 90 degrees and then have snow further up the mountains just baffles me! All of the lakes were frozen, no fishing for us.
So we spent most of our time playing cards, making S'mores, eating lots of trail mix and jerky, hiking to extremely muddy meadows, (NO Mosquitos!!!) and sunbathing.
We saw a moose, lots of deer, and I saw an elk on the way home. We made the mistake of putting Kona in the back, so when she saw the large animals she would bark at them, so they ran away.
Little Corbin spent his time falling over roots, chasing Kona's tail, hugging Kona, and dropping bananas. Kona spent all her time chasing random animals, trying to eat Corbin's food, running around, now she has been dead asleep since we got home.
On Saturday, we realized our 3 day pass expired on Saturday at 2 pm, so we packed it up and went fishing by Kamas. Kona and Corbin spent their time in the water, much to Caleb's dismay. We didn't catch anything, so we'll be going to the Fish Farm sometime. . .
"Harmony showed Corbin how the trees smelled sweet, like butterscotch. I don't know if he ever really caught on to what was happening, but he sure did look proud after he sniffed the tree, just like his pal, "Hmoney."" Quotes & Pictures Stolen from the Miller Website"It took awhile for him and Kona to learn that they weren't allowed to eat each other's food. But once he realized that he could feed her her food, he loved putting things into her mouth. He thought it was awesome." Quotes & Pictures Stolen from the Miller Website
""Hugs" - really Kona was trying desperately to take a nap, but some annoying kid kept laying on her, wonder who that could be?" Quotes & Pictures Stolen from the Miller Website
"And lucky for us the Walkers brought Kona along, and Corbin loved that poor dog. I say poor dog because he wouldn't leave her alone, he was constantly poking or pulling at some part of her. She made an excellent babysitter, as he followed her around for hours at a time. Luckily she was really nice and let him hover as much as he wanted." Quotes & Pictures Stolen from the Miller Website

Thanks to Dad, getting our trailer ready!!
