ALPINE RANGELANDS OF THE UINTA MOUNTAINS, ASHLEY AND WASATCH NATIONAL FORESTS Region 4   The alpine zone in Utah occupies ab acres, of which only about 16 percent is well vegetated (Table 2). The Uinta Mountains have the most area at these eleva-tions, but the Wasatch, Tushar, Deep Creek, and La Sal mountains also have smaller true alpine areas.

Tundra plants are all low growing due to the mean cold Moss campion is another alpine tundra species found high in the Uinta Mountains.

Like other alpine species, this plant has special adaptations to survive harsh conditions. Small, narrow leaves, low, cushion-like growth form and stemless flowers protect that plant from the wind and retain heat and moisture. Moss campion is long lived and slow While the mountains are great, we really love the lakes and the trees.

Being situated mainly in the Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest, the High Uintas area makes for a beautiful hiking trip. There are over lakes in the area and of them are inhabited with game ://   Alpine Fell Field Mt.

The Uintas contain an unusual amount of land above tree line, and has over 2, lakes. The Uinta Mountains were carved by glaciers from an immense uplift of Precambrian rock. Some of this rock is exposed as colorful quartzite and shales.
