Utah Places: Uinta West Side Meadows and Lakes

Mirror Lake and China Meadows are good examples. There are countless others less crowded or with slightly different character. What are you looking for? Trial Lake is good for fishing. Wall Lake is a great fishing spot, in addition to spectacular scenery and a short hike.

Mirror Lake is good scenery and good car camping, right off the highway. Crowded, though.

Christmas and China Meadows host an incredible array of wildflowers in season. Wildlife in abundance. Birds flocking through. And always hoards of chipmunks and squirrels scurrying around.  You might spot an elk or some deer, or even a moose!

My ideal is short drive, short hike, small crowds and all the beauty and fish one could ask for.

That's not asking too much, is it???

Ruth,

Take Tommy with next time. Go to China Meadows. You'll not be disappointed.
