The Uinta Mountains. View from Photograph Ridge, elevation 10,829 feet. One of the grandest and most perfect mountain views in the west. The foreground is a picturesque group of the mountain pines. In the middle distance, glimmering in the sunlight like a silver thread, is Blacks Fork, meandering through grass, lawn-like parks, the eye following it up to its sources among the everlasting snows of the summitridge. The peaks or cones in the distance are most distinctly stratified and apparently horizontal, or nearly so, with their summits far above the limits of perpetual snow, and from 1,500 to 2,000 feet above the springs that give rise to the streams below. Summit County, Utah. 1870.
