Tushar Mountains

The rugged Tushar Mountains are the third highest mountain range in Utah, located in the Fishlake National Forest, Mount Belknap (the peak on the right) is 12,137 feet (3699.35m) high and Mount Baldy (on the left) has a peak of 11,068 ft (3,374m). The peaks of the Tushars were formed between 22 and 32 million years ago by volcanic activity that included a calamitous explosion that blew off the top of a massive peak. At the cusp of the Great Basin, the range shares characteristics of the Colorado Plateau Province to the east.

Zedekiah: “I captured these images in the late afternoon in sub-freezing temperature at an altitude of 12,500 feet (3,810m) as I was flying out over the Sevier Plateau.”
