In the northeastern corner of Utah, at the bottom of the L by the wyoming/colorado border theres a few areas really worth checking out - Flaming Gorge national/Green River area and Uintah/Cache national forest. but there are different parts within them. Definitely the best fishing in the state, also home of the highest peaks.
Thanks for the advice, I retired to FL from NJ and miss the mountains, Utah is such a beautiful state.
I'm also hoping that Sony includes a "flip and tilt" screen to make it easier for us obese baby boomers (according to the national health organization) to get low and take pictures of our grandchildren and mountain streams without laying in the mud somewhere. It seemed when they first came out with it the "professional photographers" thought it was silly, but I see it is incorporated into many of the newer pro-dslrs.
