Chepeta Lake

I'm missing the trail and reminiscing.....

We spent a wonderful evening in alpine conditions up on the mountain.
We trekked up to Chepeta Lake for the night.
Ashley National Forest, Utah
Elevation: 10,560 ft

We spent part of the day hiking around 12,000 ft.

We pitched our tent just below the tree line due to the chance of lightning.

We didn't see another soul on our trip.


Contact my friend Joe for a great place to stay in the area:

All photos were captured with an Olympus OM-D EM-5 and Panny 20mm f1.7 v1.


  1. I saw this was in Utah after reading a little further in your post. Are you afraid of snakes in the midst of all of these stones or other possible dangerous wild life

    1. Anonymous,

      Animals are afraid of us just like we are afraid of them. They normally don't want anything to do with humans. We try to carry pepper spray if we are in bear country. I actually saw a pine marten on this trip. It was an amazing experience.

      I was trained in wilderness first-aid when I was younger. I hope that I never have to remember or use any of it. It's important to be honest with the level of your own skills and not put yourself in situations that you are not prepared for.

    1. Thanks Mike! Marci took the two of me on the trail. I can't take credit for all of them. :)
