  1. The recession of tones, forms and textures is lovely, and the colours are gorgeous, and it’s only when you look closely at the details of scale that you realise that this piece of landscape is huge. It would take a couple of days to walk across all those ridges, Scott.

    • I hesitated (for several months) to post this image because, while I could see those many things, I wondered/doubted if others would appreciate the image as much as I did. Thank you for your words, John…for seeing as you do.

  2. The mountains look pretty bare.

    • The image is actually from March of this year, Shimon…before Spring’s awakening. The brown on the hillsides would soon be replaced by the new green of scrub oak and grasses and wildflowers.

  3. Every time I see a scene like this I can’t help wondering what pioneer families thought when they looked out over it. It must have been a bit disheartening to know that you had to walk through it.

    • Yes, to walk through it…and to chop down everything directly in front of you so you could haul the wagon through it, as well. Amazing resilience and desire they had….

  4. This is a very different image. I’m trying to think of how to describe the difference… The bareness of it, I suppose. Wow, what a vista. I agree with NHGS. To have looked out over that scene… Shoot me where I stand, boys! 🙂 Beautiful as always, Scott.

    • It would have been a rough several days…months…to make it across, George. I think you’d have done just fine, though…and then you’d have been one of the quarry masters, predecessor to our modern-day cement magnates. 🙂 Thank you, my friend…..

    I’ve spent very little time in the Wasatch … and of course only saw it from a walking perspective. You have captured the image beautifully!

    • Thank you very much, LB…and as you can tell, there is so much tucked into the mountains that we can’t see at first glance.

    • Thank you, Terry…being up on a ridge-line or peak just opens-up the world to us. 🙂
