This was suppose to be a causal easy hike in the Uintas and instead it turned into a super hard, long, and miserable hike. The mosquitoes were unbearable. We couldn’t pause for a breathe, because the bloodsuckers would instantly attack. Hiking nonstop for three hours just about wiped us out. You don’t realize how much easier it is to hike if you can just stop for a second to catch your breathe or grab a snack. There was no stopping. There was no catching your breathe. You had to hike and recover at the same time. Ugh.
