5 Guys on a Trail: A Tour of the Southwestern Uintas

What happens when three guys from Ohio and two guys from Utah get together to spend five days in the High Uintas Wilderness when the only mutual connection between them all is Youtube? Amazing happens!

Earlier this year, a guy named Tim Watson who runs a well-followed YouTube channel was scheming with his two neighbor buddies in Ohio (both named Josh) about where they were going to take what has become an annual big backpacking trip for them out west.  Devin, a fellow local Utahn friend of mine who I came to know first through YouTube as well, pitched to Tim the idea to come out to Utah.  Things got serious quickly and plans were made for the three Buckeyes to to fly out to Utah for a meet-up this past July.  This is the story of that amazing trip!

Ruth Lake Drop Off

After a month of getting out with the kids, one by one, I convinced Jessica that she needed a night out.  She had never done a solo backpacking trip before, so I helped her choose a location that was short, simple, yet offered seclusion on a mid-week night where she could feel safer and a bit more confident.  A lake neighboring Ruth Lake in the Uintas was chosen for her first solo backpacking stay.  For a family activity, the kids and I would escort her in and help her choose a campsite then leave her be.
