Sundial Peak in Winter

You might remember Sundial Peak from various posts over the summer…and into the fall…possibly from the one dedicated specifically to Lake Blanche, one of the Sister Lakes located at the end of the drainage, Mill B South, up in Big Cottonwood Canyon…tucked away in the Wasatch Mountains…just south and east of Salt Lake City, Utah, USA….  It took twice as long to get there with the deep, deep snow…even with snow-shoes…but, oh, what a reward at the end…..

  3. The colors here against the snow are great. The conifers or whatever they are make such a dramatic statement standing tall against the mountain. I am almost fearful when I look at this scene. We are fragile in the face of it. Such untouched beauty.

    • I love your words, George…that you (and we) are fearful when you look at the scene…such knowing of our delicate state of life…and yes, the beauty…. I’m happy that the image moved you…thank you….
