In a region filled with utterly unknown yet often beautiful ranges, the Deep Creek Mountains of far western Utah are perhaps the most totally obscure yet thoroughly enchanting range of the Great Basin. Miles and miles from any major road and set in the middle of a brutal desert, many people in Utah have never even heard of the Deep Creeks. Despite this, this range is actually higher than the famous and dominant Wasatch Range (high point of Mount Nebo at 11,875') in Utah's Rockies. This great height gives the Deep Creeks their namesake streams, pleasant forests, and wide-ranging views in all directions, all without the civilization and crowds found in other similar ranges.
Probably the most striking thing about the Deep Creek Mountains is the bright white rock that crowns the summits of Ibapah and Haystack peaks, making the range look snow-capped when seen from a distance, such as from U.S. highway 93A in Nevada.
