360 Adventure Hiking Bald Mountain, Utah

While camping at Mirror lake, I had such am amazing view of Bald Mountain.  (Blog post of Mirror Lake )
Link to Mirror Lake
 I was debating a few different hikes, but my waking up to the sun lighting up this mountain was the decision breaker.  I was told it was a super long, hike, but it is only 2.2 miles up and 2.2 miles down.  The hard thing is the elevation.  The trail head is clearly marked. I headed out of the Mirror Lake campground and headed left, and then took a right on Bald Mountain Trailhead parking lot.

While hiking Bald Mountain, I had a beautiful analogy hit me.  You are so high, you feel like God looking down on the big earth.  This area has been struggling lately for there has been an invasion of the Japanese Beetle and it is killing many of the trees.  I think that is like us today.  So many people in the world are spiritually dying for they forget about God.  Some are trying hard amidst the constant struggle to keep spiritually healthy, to remember God, and to keep their spirit and soul at peace with the man upstairs.  I hope you can remember God in your life.  Love others, listen to your spirit and may you keep your spirit/soul healthy amidst the bugs that want to leave you like all the grey stumps of trees that pepper this forest.

The peach colored rocks in a cool step fomrations with the deep green pine make for a great start to this hike.  I am excited.  This looks so much more interesting than I thought it would be!

Wild flowers are the bomb, but wild flowers that are tucked nice and perfectly in pretty rocks is just PERFECTION!  LOVE IT!  



This deep brownish red wall is really beautiful with all the formations in the rock.

I was surprised here how the rocks looked like dalmation puppies with all their spots, and the mountain was just covered with them.

Amazing Purple Flowers popping with the contrast of the peach rocks.  I am not sure the name of the cute purple flower on the right.  I am going to have to look that one up.

There was about 6 amazing Cairns like this from this point on.  With all the rocks around they had to make them really noticeable and stick out, and they did that really well.  These are almost a work of art.

This looks intimidating, but there was firm rocks in all the right places, and look at those really is nicely cut out staircase leading to the top. It is very cool looking.

I MADE IT TO THE TOP OF BALD MOUNTAIN!




I made it to the top!  I was surprised that it was flat on the top.  Not sure why that surprised me, but the mountain is so round, I thought the top would be more round.  Second, the top is riddled with more Cairns, some might be GEOCACHES, but I thought maybe there is a trail that continues onward.  I was curious and looked it up when I got home and sure enough, there is!

WHILE YOU ARE IN THIS AREA, HERE ARE A FEW MORE AWESOME HIKES IN THE UINTA AREA

There is so much beauty around us, I am constantly amazed.  My highlights of my few days in the Unitas was Kayaking and walking around Mirror Lake


MIRROR LAKE

I had such a delightful time walking around the lake and kayaking in the lake.  Sunrise and sunsets were magnificent.  Loved it here.


  Hiking Bald Mountain was not super hard, but a rush of adrenaline being on such edges of the mountain side and awesome uniqueness in cool rocks formations that I have yet to see the like. 

I also LOVED UPPER PROVO RIVER FALLS



 Upper Provo river was nice to explore more than just the first few waterfalls, and was a pretty hike the whole mile down river. 
If you are enjoying my blog, would you consider taking a minute to look at my sponsor links to earn me a few pennies to keep these posts coming your way.  The things I want with me the most heading into the Uintas are 1. An External GPS.  If you download the hiking and driving maps, it is so nice to help you not get lost.  2.  Campfire cooking tools.  3.  Some Fishing Gear, and 4.  A Kayak to guide around on one of the many lakes in the area.
