Flake Mountain is a 8,048 ft / 2,453 m mountain peak near Panguitch, Utah, United States. This mountain is the 789th highest mountain in Utah and the 9,471st highest mountain in the United States. Located within the boundaries of the Dixie National Forest, It sits on the Sevier Plateau towering above John’s Valley near the Bryce Canyon National Park. It is a couple of miles north of the Bryce Canyon Airport where I always stop to refuel when I am shooting in the area.
In this photo to the left of the Mountains is Willis Draw and you can see Spring Creek which runs to the south of Flake Mountain into the East Fork of the Sevier River. This area was a seasonal high elevation hunting ground for the Southern Paiute First Nations Tribes. The Paunsaugunt and Sevier Plateaus were used for seasonal hunting and gathering activities, but there is no evidence of any long term permanent settlements.
Zedekiah: “I lensed this image almost immediately after taking off from Bryce Canyon Airport then heading north into the mountains. From an elevation of 2,000 feet above the ground you can clearly seen into the valley that separates the two flattop mountains that are together called Flake Mountain.”
