When you live within four hours of five national parks in southern Utah, its hard not to take any opportunity you can to visit, even if it is a quick one. Recently I woke up super early to drive down to Canyonlands and Arches National Parks near Moab to spend the day.
With the new year underway and while I am still maintaining a busy schedule, I decided I would take a weekend to visit one of the most beautiful places Utah has to offer. I would go so far as to say Zion National Park is one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been.
Wyoming is home to two U.S. National Parks, Yellowstone and Grand Teton. Since both are relatively close to one another and not too far from my home in Salt Lake City, I recently took a weekend and visited both of these serene destinations.
I look forward to the changing of the seasons. And this time of year the leaves in the mountains of Utah glow in brilliant colors. I love fall. Not only is it beautiful, the weather is generally pleasant and perfect for exploring and other outdoor activities.
I recently had the opportunity to spend some time with family in Lake Tahoe. Since I was a little kid my family has been vacationing here. But it has been a while since my last visit so it was nice to be back. Here’s some photos from the trip!
It’s wildflower season in Northern Utah. While there are many places in Utah you can go to see different kinds of wildflowers, one of my favorite places is the Albion Basin, located within the boundaries of Alta Ski Resort, a short 30 minutes from Salt Lake City.
It’s been a busy couple of weeks. I have been spending many of those days taking photos though. So I want to highlight some of my most recent ones as well as show you some places you might consider checking out yourself.
In continuation of an entry Utah:Nature at your doorstep, I’d like to share some photos with you from another great and accessible place not far from Salt Lake City. Recently I took an overnight trip in to Mirror Lake, located in the Uinta Mountains. This high alpine area is popular in the summer months for outdoor enthusiasts.
People who aren’t from or haven’t lived in Utah often wonder why people who have love it so much. They know it has mountains and snow and some national parks. But what people don’t realize is how accessible the cities are to the outdoors and rural nature. While certainly not the biggest city in the country, the Salt Lake City metro area boasts a lot of big city amenities. But what makes it unique is the ability to put city life on the back burner like an on/off switch.
