Uintah Mountain Meadow

On Sunday my husband and I took our first trip to the Uintah Mountains here in Utah. We try to go at least 2-3 times a year. It's only possible to drive through these amazing mountains between June and September. We saw many beautiful sights yesterday, meadows, lakes (some still frozen, really neat), wildlife and amazing vistas. It was really cool to see Mirror Lake still frozen, the ice made pretty patterns on the surface. We saw an amazing meadow filled with tons of color, wildflowers, and moose; we watched them through our binoculars, they still had velvet on their antlers, really cool. There was still quite a bit of snow up there at 11,000+ feet but it was a warm day so it made a nice mix. This is my attempt to draw the scene as I remember it.
