Any list of the highest peaks in Utah is completely dominated by the Uintas, the high Rocky Mountain sub-range running east-west in the northeastern part of the state. This list eliminates all the peaks in the Uintas so the high peaks in the state's other high ranges--the La Sals, the Deep Creeks, and the Tushars--can show their stuff.
See the Utah 12,000-foot Peaks list to see the Uinta-dominated list of Utah's highest summits.
