Default Seeking Grayling, High Uintas, UT - 08/04/2013

So my daughter and I thought it would be cool to hike in to an alpine lake and see if we could knock Arctic Grayling off of the bucket list. We chose the Crystal Lake trailhead in the High Uintas Range as a few lakes close enough for a day hike hold these beautiful fish.

Mount Watson greets hikers at the trailhead.

Difficult to capture the beauty of these fish in still images.

Maybe next summer I can knock Golden Trout off the list?
