  1. Everything looks so tiny compared to those mountains. Awesome shot!

    • Hello, Kai…thank you for the nice words…. I hope you enjoy your time passing through this summer…hopefully it’s not too warm for you. Seems that area along the Escalantes can get kind of toasty…..

  3. Another superb image Scott. I love those mountains.

  4. You’ve certainly captured the glory and that ever present sense of those awesome mountains, but my memories don’t include that much traffic out in Cedar Valley. Used to be the sort of place where the guys would stop in the middle of the road to chat. Or the prerequisite meetings that took place leaning on the tailgate of the pickups.

    • Thank you, Gunta…while the mountains and their influence remains the same over time, unfortunately (?), the roads out there seem to have gotten busier than when you lived here…. Didn’t see any jawin’ over the tailgate…nobody stopped along the road, either…except Yours Truly with camera in hand…. 🙂

  5. Those mountains really dominate the scenery, especially when they are snow-capped.

    • They are quite a presence, Terry.

  6. That’s almost terrifying, the mountains looming like that. I’d like to be in one of those cars, though.

    • They’re not going to step on you, Jean, they’re several miles away. 🙂

  7. This makes me long for a journey somewhere new. 🙂

    • Then the photo must be a success….. 🙂

  8. Looks like there could be some good ski runs in those slopes. Is this recent, Scott, with snow still on the tops?

    • The photo was from the first week or so of April, John…and it would be entirely “back country” skiing if anyone could make it up there…hiking up with the skis on their back and then being very picky and careful on the way down…..I’m not sure that they’d be doing it on the parts that we can see in the image, though……

      • …those slopes look tempting….but no doubt very dangerous.

        I hope that warmer weather is with you now.

        • They do look a bit treacherous, John…and the warm weather did visit us for a week or so…but we woke to huge snowflakes this morning and lots of wind…but the sun is out now and it’s supposed to be warmer again by the weekend…hopefully the sun will be shining on the snowy trails for us in the mountains. 🙂

  9. That looks like a long row to hoe. I think I’d have to take the powered option.

    • But then it all goes by so quickly, Gary…… 🙂
