High Uintas Wilderness - Amethyst Basin

Fall colors


The trail to Amethyst Lake is about 6 miles long; it feels like 12. Views along the trail are not very spectacular until You're almost there. Amethyst Basin is enclosed by Lamotte and Ostler Peaks and opens to the west. This makes it a better sunset than sunrise location.
