Want to disappear? Enjoy backpacking and fishing away from the crowds? Then visit the Uinta National Forest. In the fall, you might run into a few hunters and their horses. You may also experience crazy thunderstorms combined with snow. It's all part of the fun Utah weather. Be safe, know your location, travel in groups, bring plenty of food and water and appropriate backpacking gear. The water in the Uinta National Forest is only safe to drink if you have an excellent water filtration system. If fishing or hunting is your activity of choice, acquire the appropriate licensing before you go at a local sporting store or http://wildlife.utah.gov/licenses/. Local wildlife include Black Bear, Fox, Hawks, Eagles, Trout, Deer...etc.
