The video slide show begins with a couple of incredible aerial photographs of Crow Basin and Jackson Park, taken by friend Jonathan Jaussi (soon I’ll do a post of all his wonderful collection in preparation to conquer the area in August 2012). Thanks, Jonathan.
To give you a glimpse of over 140 varieties photographed–around 40 new, I’ve put them all into a fast moving YouTube video slide show 12 minutes long. There’s no sound, nor attempt to identify them–yet. I will work on that during the long winter to ward off “cabin fever” and then do the big job of updating the wildflower albums in the Galleries section with THE BEST OF THE BEST–likely bringing the total varieties to around 280. In most cases I try and show the entire plant, then zoom in.
If you enjoy the presentation, or any others on the website, a small donation would help keep the effort going.

WHAT FOR 2012 (besides the Mayan end of the world!)?
The “Forest Gump Moment” mentioned in my last trip report was only momentary. On that trip to Jackson Park and Crow Basin (YouTube video) I did so well doing the 6 miles to the car that I’m convinced I’m far from finished. So I’m now back in training at REAMS SUPERMARKET, in Springville to be ready for 4 trips in August of 2012. Drop by the store at 759 E. 400 South– I’d love to serve you while keeping in shape. I’m grateful for that opportunity to serve, and appreciative of the management and owners for giving me a job that literally helps keep me alive and raring to go in the Uintas and I’m even planning on running again (15th time) in 2012 the Coban International Half Marathon in Guatemala.

Have you thought about a short gaunt up the middle fork of the Weber?
Most of my efforts have concentrated on the Wilderness Area. I did make a trip to the very head of the Weber once, to Notch Pass. Once I get the Wilderness explored, I hope to move on as you suggest. Thanks.
I'm thinking of the Abes, Adax, Anchor, Jerry lakes areas.
I went over the pass to Hell's Kitchen from the area between Rhodes and Anchor a little while back.
May not be severe in miles but looks like pretty rugged stroll. I must find where the Elk play up there.
BTW unbelievable website reports pics etc etc etc.
You are an inspiration – thank you!
-health, strength & happiness, Tom
