Several lakes and ponds lie among scenic peaks and uplands. The southern portion of the Pioneer Mountains consists of rugged, glaciated peaks with numerous cirques, many with lakes. Despite their height and cool weather, these mountains have very sparse forests. Although this sometimes makes it hard to get out of the high-elevation sun, it does provide for almost constant, scenic views into the distance.
