The 456,705 acre High Uintas Wilderness is the heart of the Uinta Mt. range, well known as the most prominent range in the lower 48 states that goes from east to west. It is an alpine wonderland with over 1,000 lakes that is next to the San Juan Mountains of Colorado with the most contiguous above timberline area in the Continental U.S. Its area of “alpine flora surpasses all of the alpine areas in the Intermountain West combined.” (INTERMOUNTAIN FLORA magazine ) We could add that in biodiversity it surpasses all of Utah’s National Parks in addition to providing 90% of Utah’s water. It gives me great pleasure to share all of this with you and provide a few tips to help all enjoy it safely.
This website is dedicated to the adventures of Cordell M Andersen. BACKPACKER MAGAZINE says about Cordell, “He calls it his ‘Uintas Project,’ we call it a labor of love.”
But, frankly the truth is that Cordell needs your help–like a DONATION, to cover so much he has done to help hundreds (maybe thousands), and for the help and beauty he continues to share with all. PLEASE HELP BY MAKING A DONATION TO KEEP THE EFFORT GOING.
