The past few weekends of adventures have been very thought out. A lot of planning and research went into those trips and we were ready for a nice relaxing weekend. Blake and I thought a nice weekend at home would be nice, but upon further thinking we realized we would probably get bored, so we decided to go do something. We wanted to go somewhere where there was hardly a drive and that we could be alone. We talked about car camping by Mirror Lake but knew that it would be super crowded and that we probably wouldn’t even be able to get a spot. That led us to backpacking… again. We thought we might be a little crazy because we had just finished a long backpacking trip last weekend, but it also sounded really nice and relaxing to both of us. Blake opened up his Uintas map and picked a lake that looked nice; he chose Ibantik Lake. We did minimal planning and research on Ibantik Lake.
