Thank you, Adrian. 🙂

Beautiful, but I’m in no hurry.
April 12, 2012 at 7:29 am
Thank you, Allen…and you can take your time. 🙂

Thank you, Rose. 🙂
I would have to echo adrianpym and say “great colors” but only in my American way without the “U”. This picture almost wants me to forget about Spring and run back to fall…notice I said almost….I am soaking in Spring fever now! That does not take away from that perfect autumn pic! Nice work.

Thank you, Nancy. I thought it would be nice to reflect on that other brightly-colored time of year as we’re watching the new-greening of Spring. I’m rather suffering with the Spring-fever, myself, anxious to get out into the green canyons and mountains…but still have to wait for the depths of snow to melt. Thank you for your nice words. 🙂

My fever is running quite high…..I may explode…I am faced with rain here..lots of it…I am now growing moss out of the top of my head. Yikes! 🙂
April 12, 2012 at 10:01 am
Oh…I do know how you feel, aside from the moss growing out of my head, I think I’m in the same boat with you…can’t wait. 🙂
April 12, 2012 at 10:03 am
Ah, the path that ever tempts me to go …
April 12, 2012 at 8:22 am
I am right there with you, Scott…thank you. This is one of my favorite trails…up and up and into the mountains…leads up to some beautiful waterfalls.
April 12, 2012 at 8:41 am
Ever more tempting!
April 12, 2012 at 8:43 am
Yes, it is…indeed more tempting!
April 12, 2012 at 8:48 am
What an amazing combination of colors and great composition!
April 12, 2012 at 8:47 am
Thank you, Rasha, for visiting, and for your nice words. 🙂
April 12, 2012 at 8:49 am
anytime, I’ll be visiting often 🙂
April 12, 2012 at 8:52 am
Thank you, Rasha…will look forward to your company. 🙂

I love this image… it can easily be visualized as a magnificent oil painting. Fabulous shot!
April 12, 2012 at 8:56 am
Thank you, Robyn…such nice words. 🙂
April 12, 2012 at 9:45 am
Really beautiful Scott.
April 12, 2012 at 9:14 am
Thank you, Mike…I’m glad you like it. 🙂
Gorgeous image. I love autumn. I love the way it smells, and everything about it. This image makes me feel as though I have taken a vacation into the future and the past all at once, into a silent pathway where all you can hear is the soft sound of leaves falling, and squirrels scampering through the rustling debris. Great image!!!
April 12, 2012 at 9:24 am
Thank you, Rosette…I’m happy you liked it…such nice words. 🙂
April 12, 2012 at 9:43 am
Lovely colours and a great shot. I’m really looking forward to you hitting those trails once the snow melts Scott. 🙂
Thank you, Chillbrook…I can’t wait. 🙂

Fabulous imagery by SEEKRAZ. Fall in love with Autumn!
April 12, 2012 at 9:25 am
Thank you for reblogging, Rosette…you’re very kind. 🙂
You are VERY welcome! I am in love with this image!
April 12, 2012 at 9:57 am
Wow…Rosette…I am touched that you like/love it so much! 🙂
What beautiful colours – so soft. I can imagine walking along that path.
April 12, 2012 at 1:08 pm
It’s a wonderful path, Meanderer…thank you for your nice words. 🙂
April 12, 2012 at 1:15 pm
Fall?! Let’s have Spring and Summer first ;-). But love the colors!
April 12, 2012 at 1:24 pm
Weeeeelllllll, I thought it was a pretty picture, Yvonne!! And Spring and Summer will get here and won’t have these colors…so we can enjoy them now. 🙂

Truly magical catch. From what I remember of your territory, it wasn’t always so easy to catch the reds. This is one you could hang on a wall and not become bored with after awhile. It just wants to take you up that lovely path into some lovely dreams.
April 12, 2012 at 2:27 pm
What a wonderful comment, thank you, Gunta. 🙂
April 12, 2012 at 2:32 pm
This is one of the prettiest pictures I’ve seen on WordPress! Or anywhere for that matter!
April 12, 2012 at 7:09 pm
Such nice words, Elisa…thank you! Wow! 🙂
April 12, 2012 at 7:55 pm
April 12, 2012 at 8:02 pm
Ok, Elisa…I do thank you…truly…I’m touched that you find it so pretty. Thank you very much! 🙂
April 12, 2012 at 8:04 pm
Incredibly peaceful and inviting image. Lovely colors and composition.
April 12, 2012 at 9:16 pm
Thank you, Melanie…nice words. 🙂

A wooded path with speed bumps … LOL … now, I’ve seen it all. I suspect the cross members are to minimize errosion, in reality, are they not? Eitherway, it is a beautiful path and it looks like it would be a dynamite riding path. 🙂
April 14, 2012 at 8:15 pm
Yes, Marcy…the wooded path with speed-bumps…used for erosion control. 🙂 And this trail is actually restricted to foot traffic only. It is beautiful, but it becomes too narrow, too steep, and too traveled with hikers to be safe to have bikes there.
April 14, 2012 at 10:22 pm
I was thinking horses, not bikes. Not many places a horse can’t go. 😉
April 14, 2012 at 11:01 pm
My first thought was the mountain-bikers, Marcy, as we have many trails where they are a common sight…and this one might be rather rough for horses, too. Maybe not at this particular point, but it does get very steep and the trail is often boulder-hopping at times, too, in addition to being very narrow, even for someone of my size, let alone a horse. It’s a very pretty thought, though…would make a nice image, too. 🙂
April 15, 2012 at 6:45 am
WOW!! I don’t live in a place where we see these types of colors…to see the colors change and rise up from the ground to the sky is amazing. Thanks!
April 15, 2012 at 10:00 am
Thank you, Cathy…I did brighten the colors just a little with Picasa…but it was beautiful before I did so…. 🙂
April 15, 2012 at 3:08 pm
No matter – I still love it! 🙂
April 16, 2012 at 7:59 pm
Thank you, Cathy; I appreciate that you do. 🙂

Scott, I am very tardy in adding my comments to this beautiful work, but hope that it won’t diminish my enthusiasm. I would love to walk this path–at any season, under any weather conditions, and at any time of day when there’s enough light to see anything. Where is it? Do you get there often?
April 17, 2012 at 7:40 pm
A comment like this could never be tardy, Gary…thank you. I have walked it in the heat of summer, cool greening of spring, with the brilliant colors of fall, and under near a foot of snow…and in the rain, besides…it is beautiful…and just down the road…. I’ve left the house with a full cup of coffee and not finished it before getting to the parking lot/trailhead for the trail, it is that close. I think it would be fair to say, too, that I have been there about a dozen times in the last 18-20 months. It is the trail that leads up to the Bells Canyon waterfalls, if you’ve seen any of my posts about them. Just east of Sandy, Utah, in the Wasatch Mountains. Here’s a link to my post “Faces of the Falls,” in which I have pictures from six visits to the falls during different months of the year. It’s one of my favorite places.

You are very fortunate indeed to have settled in a place where wonders like this are at your doorstep. I’ve been to your area only once, when my brother was interning there, many years ago. We hiked on the edge of some of the salt flats and up a trail on Alta, and I can still well remember the beauty. I’m really enjoying what you’re sharing. Keep it up!
April 20, 2012 at 7:20 pm
I agree with you, Gary; I feel very fortunate to live here with all of this at my doorstep. I haven’t been out to the salt flats, but have been up to Alta a few times…and many places in-between. I’m glad you’re enjoying the photos…and I’ll keep posting them for you. 🙂
