Mighty Red Castle by tourofnature Mighty Red Castle by tourofnature
I took my first solo backpacking trip this past weekend to the Red Castle area in the Uinta Mountain Range. Of all the vistas I've seen in my travels, this is definitely one of the most humbling. The place has a true "wild" feel to it, the trailhead is around 12 miles away from this point. I'll have a short journal entry with a couple of the trips highlights.

I still have loads of ideas for photos in the area, I think I'll make this an annual trip.

Canon 5D. 24-105 L. 3SS GND.

Dude. Awesome stuff. I love that creek there on the left. Gorgeous morning light, it's almost like I can feel the brisk morning air. By chance did you switch to your 17-40 at all and look for comps with the cascading creek in foreground?

Thanks man. This one is actually at sunset, but you're right about the air being brisk, even in the evening. Last year I tried some with the comp you mentioned but any vantage point is too low to frame Red Castle very well. Above in the meadow are better opportunities. I still didn't get the comp I had in mind I was telling you about. I will definitely be back again.
