Geologically, this area is the oldest in the High Uintas. Some refer to it as the backbone of the Uintas, while others call it the heart. After all, the upper basins of Rock Creek are shaped somewhat like a heart. Ledge Lake is a haven in this vast heart, providing everything one could want in a camp. Springwater is abundant, as is horse pasture, but so are mosquitoes around the waterlogged outlet. The fishing may be surprising. Brook trout weigh in at well over a pound and seem to prefer an olive-green scud fly for dinner. The problem is finding out what time dinner is served.
