I had a nice treat a week ago. My Aunt Adele and Uncle Edward, who live in Indiana, decided to take a big western road trip. After touring the southwest and a few of Utah's national parks they came and spent a weekend with me. They had not been here before so we spent a few days touring all the local scenic areas. One day we drove the Alpine Loop, a scenic mountain drive that is best known for it's fall color display. We were a little late for changing leaves, in fact, we caught the beginning of winter, but it was still a spectacular drive.
Mt. Timpanogos 11749 ft... Many years ago I hiked to the top!
A lone stand of aspens yet to loose it's leaves... I good lesson in micro-environment I think!
