It’s the landscape where Butch Cassidy once cooked and served Thanksgiving dinner to ranch families. Where men hunting dinosaur bones drew guns over territorial disputes. And where soldiers once marched across the Uinta Mountains mid-winter to prevent an army and its livestock from starving. Eccentric also has the distinction of being the highest peak in Uintah and Daggett counties at 12,276 feet. To the north of this wide talus summit, Flaming Gorge Dam’s plug on the Green River has backed water into Wyoming. Kings Peak, Utah’s highest, rises to the west. And a glance over any brink reveals lakes strung together by streams in wide valleys.
