My Mountains….

There is much that we simply cannot see when we are down in the valleys and canyons of the mountains that surround us…however…when we find ourselves perched atop a ridge-line or peak, it is almost as if the world has been opened for us and we can see…and see.  I found myself atop the ridge-line between Days Fork and Cardiff Fork a couple of weekends ago…and almost could not believe the view.  These are some of the various peaks that comprise our Wasatch Mountains…the eastern border for the greater Salt Lake Valley.

    • Very real, John…and truly wonderful. And it did feel a bit precarious up on the ridge for a little bit…made sure of my footing and didn’t move about very much…but thank you. 🙂

  5. You are so fortunate, Scott–not only in that you live in such a beautiful place, but even more in that you know how to truly appreciate it and share it with the rest of us. Spectacular.

    • I think I’ve shared it here before, Gary, somewhere on the blog, that there are times when my heart wants to explode with joy at being out there in the canyons and mountains, surrounded by the beauty that is there…I simply can’t help it…and I marvel that some can be so unaffected by all of it…so yes, I do feel so fortunate to live here AND to appreciate it as I do…. Thank you…and it is a pleasure to share it with you….
