September 2-11, 2013.   Farther Afield.   A long solo backpacking loop in the Uinta Mountains (NE corner of Utah). Grandview Trailhead. Six passes: Hades, Rocky Sea, Deadhorse, Red Knob, Cleveland, and Hades again. Very unlike my familiar haunts: forests of spruce, grassy mountain meadows with trails marked by cairns, layered quartzite and slate cliffs, plus that variable, dramatic, and sometimes wet Rockies weather.
