Utah is a stunningly beautiful place with numerous mountain ranges, rivers, lakes, and deserts. But if you’re looking to climb the highest peaks in Utah, you just have to visit the Uinta Mountains.
All of the Utah 13ers are located in the rugged and remote Uinta Mountains. Located in northeastern Utah, the Uinta Mountains are the highest range in the US that runs east to west. This unique range is home to 19 peaks over 13,000′. Only 7 of 19 of the Utah 13ers have official names. The rest are known by unofficial names. Can you climb them all?
