Yant Flat - Most Beautiful Place In Utah?

Last week my brother-in-law Matt took me to an isolated spot in the foothills of the Pine Valley Mountains to a place called Yant Flat.

By the look of things, you can see that there was plenty of scrambling up and down amazing mountains of slick rock.

My feet have carried me across many miles of Utah, but I think the miles here were among the most scenic I've seen. I took hundreds of pictures out here. The following are some of my favorites:


This cliff made both of us a little queezy standing on the edge.

These Montrail Bajada shoes had just the right amount of grip to get me up and down the hills.

And my UltrAspire Omega pack worked perfectly to carry my water and gear.





I think Utah has more than it's share of completely, awesomely amazing places. I'd rank Yant Flat as one of the most beautiful.
