Ascent Trip Report

Awesome Uinta backpacking trip with my best friend, Duane. It was his week of patrolling the backcountry as a wilderness ranger and I tagged along for a vacation of peakbagging and cleaning up illegal campfire rings. We both climbed Kings & So. Kings and I took a day of 13'er bagging near Lake Atwood. The weather was great, only a few showers when we were camped in Painter Basin. Pics
