Thread: 5 Days......Red Castle

  1. #1

    5 Days......Red Castle

    So I went backpacking.

    Epic trip.

    Red Castle, high Uintas.

    Drive like you're going to Kings and instead of going left to Henry's Fork, keep going straight about 10 miles.

    13 miles in to upper Red Castle lake which is where we went.

    Epic fishing.

    We saw probably two dozen moose. Big bastards

    It was awesome. A little slow at first but then the clouds set in and all was well

    I was using a black and red spinner. My brother was catching them on black beatle flies.

    sweetness

    i DO love that area. thanks for sharin', looks like ya'll had a good time.



    ps. i dig that approach view of RC, tiny in the distance, at first, and grows immense when you finally reach it, the experience heightened after walking miles in the forest/meadows. mighty purdy mountain, i must say.

    Nice pics man! And the photos of the fish frying is killing me! Ugh, I gotta get out and have myself a fish fry.

    I wish my lawn was EMO so it would cut itself.

    Yea, it was a fun trip.

    As always I packed too much food. Hell I probably ended up eating 3500-4000 calories every day

    Open fires are only ok when there are fresh fish involved. (This is not a legal opinion and I will deny it when you are getting cited)

    Yes. We checked with the Ranger station beforehand. They said there wern't any restrictions in that area at that elevation.

    Were you near Lake Blanchard? Cliff Lake?

    Also, what's with the Gators? Do they help with mud, rattlers or something else? I only wear gators in the snow. Just wondering...

    Your pictures were awesome! We're heading up that way late next week.

    No.

    They are low gators. If you don't know... I can't tell you

    i find that gators, or more correctly, gaiters have a lot of uses in the outdoors. certainly they are helpful in the snow, especially when post-holing without snowshoes, or walking/ski touring in powder snow. but they are also quite useful hiking and backpacking. they block small rocks from getting into boots, if a problem. they protect your skin/snagging clothing/shoelaces when walking in thick brush. they can block sand, dirt, and mud ...

    Thanks for the spelling correction too.

    Fires are OK as long as you are east of the Highline Trail (or Mirror Lake). I found out when I called the Kamas Ranger's office yesterday.

    So, was that 13 miles IN and 13 miles OUT?
    Never pistol whip someone with your gun...that could mar the finish.

    Yea, 13 in and 13 out + probably 10 or so average during the trip.
