The summer flew by and is essentially at an end. So I’ve had the last week or so to gather some photos I’ve taken over the last few months I’ve spent hiking and camping in my backyard, the mountains of Utah. In this post, I’ll highlight the wildflowers and wildlife I’ve encountered.
Depending where you are in the state, or I guess what elevation you are at, spring starts in varying stages. For example, it won’t be until late May when spring shows its face in the upper Cottonwood Canyons. Snow shoeing or skiing can still be enjoyed well past the time the ski resorts close down for the winter season. l But just down the road at the base of the canyon, flowers are blooming and people are hiking around in shorts.
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.
