The Wasatch Mountain Range stretches for 160 miles from the Utah/Idaho border south to central Utah. It sits on the western slope of the great Rocky Mountains and the eastern edge of the Great Basin. The name “Wasatch” is the Ute Indian translation of “mountain pass” or “low range over a mountain pass.” The highest point of the Wasatch mountains is Mt. Nebo at 11,928 feet. Other notable landmarks nearby include Lone Peak, Twin Peaks, Mt. Olympus and Bridal Veil Falls.
The city of Heber was founded in 1859 by Mormon pioneers from England. The current population is approximately 13,000. This bucolic little town is nestled between the Jordanelle State Park & Reservoir and Deer Creek Dam & Reservoir. The verdant Heber Valley is bisected by the Provo River, renowned for fly fishing, and shares the valley with the resort town of Midway. Nearby ski resorts include Park City Mountain, Sundance, and Soldier Hollow, site of the 2002 Winter Olympic cross-country skiing events. The Heber Valley is a pastoral setting and home to many beautiful farms and natural wildlife.
