Climate - The climate of Utah varies with the terrain. Visitors to the mountains will
experience cool summer nights and passing storms that can alter a sunny day
very quickly. Be prepared with layers when recreating in the mountains.
The deserts and canyons of Utah can be dangerous places. Summer
temperatures often reach above 100 degrees F, so be sure to carry water on
all adventures. Flash floods in the canyons are also a threat. It is difficult to
predict incoming weather when deep within a canyon so check reports before
venturing into any narrow canyon areas.
Huntington North Reservoir is located 2 miles north of Huntington, Utah. To
