Uinta Mountain Elopement | Esther + Tyler's Magical Wedding

Uinta Mountain - Mirror Lake Highway Elopement


Esther and Tyler initially reached out with a set date (June First) but were undecided on the location for their mountain elopement. During our discussion about potential spots near Salt Lake City, they expressed a strong preference for the Uintas. However, we were all aware that a solid backup plan was essential, given that the road to the Uintas typically opens just days before the chosen wedding date.


So for their wedding we basically had two plans in motion. Luckily, we found out just 5 days before their wedding that the road Mirror Lake Highway was opening! YAY! I was able to go scouting on May 27th to finalize their timeline, and find the exact ceremony location. These two invited two of their best friends, who also officiated the wedding.


If you're intested in exploring the Uintas you've come to the right spot! Uinta Mountains offer a diverse range of hiking trails with stunning alpine scenery, pristine lakes, and opportunities to explore the high country. Here are some of the best hikes in the Uinta Mountains:

Bald Mountain (Mirror Lake Highway):

  • A popular and relatively short hike with incredible panoramic views of the surrounding mountains and lakes. The trailhead is accessible from the Mirror Lake Highway.

Lake Blanche Trail:

  • Located in the western Uintas, this trail takes you to the beautiful Lake Blanche, surrounded by rugged peaks. The trail is moderately strenuous and offers picturesque views.

Notch Mountain Trail:

  • This trail takes you to Notch Mountain, offering breathtaking views of the surrounding peaks and Hayden Peak. The trailhead is near the Mirror Lake Highway.

Lofty Lake Loop:

  • A moderate loop trail that takes you past several alpine lakes, including Lofty Lake. The trailhead is accessible from the Mirror Lake Highway.

West Fork Blacks Fork Trail:

  • This trail takes you through a picturesque canyon along the West Fork of the Blacks Fork River. It's a less crowded option with beautiful scenery. Pro-tip, if you go here in late July / early August you will be greeted with loads of wildflowers!


Before heading out on any hike in the Uinta Mountains, make sure to check trail conditions, weather forecasts, and be prepared for varying elevations. I've had several people get elevation sickness while hiking with me in the Uintas. When making plans for advtenture, you can prep the week before by drinking a lot of water! As always, don't forget to practice Leave No Trace!
