Bridge over Red Pine Stream

I made this photo while on the way to Red Pine Lake near the end of December, 2013.  You can click here to see a strikingly different image of the same location that I made in September, 2012.  If you cross this bridge and follow the trail to its end, you will find yourself near the three alpine lakes of Maybird Gulch.  I have only made the trip once in my three years here in the Wasatch…a short foray into the area that found me hopping unsteadily from one treacherously snow-covered boulder to another around the lower lake.  It was rather nerve wracking and I haven’t been back…but I will get there again in the warmer months when the green mountains are more suited to exploration.

  1. Oh, makes me long for the snow that we had, and that are now more or less gone (for a while). Reminds me of so many skiing trips. Just like Norway!

    • From what I’ve seen, Bente, your county is also a beautiful place…and hiking in similar places must be wonderful, as well.

    Lovely image. Very nice with just that glimpse of water in the stream. Looks very, very cold though, Scott.

    • Thank you, Vicki…there is just a bit of water still flowing in the stream…and yes, it was quite cold up there…but the exertion of hiking and climbing in elevation helped to keep me warm. 🙂

  3. Nice of someone to go to the trouble of building it. Our landscape is looking much like yours.

    • The National Forest Service does a good job with the trail crossings here. Hope you’re not horribly frozen up there in NH, Allen.

    • Thanks, Yvonne….I thought I saw some photos of snow at your place a while ago…did it not last for long?
