Farmland and mountains in Goshen, Utah

In this image from April, 2013, you can see the early spring greenery on the fields and hillsides, while there is still a fine covering of snow on the distant Wasatch Mountains.  Goshen is approximately 50 miles south of the Salt Lake Valley, in Utah County, and just a bit south of Utah Lake…the fresh-water lake that drains north via the Jordan River into The Great Salt Lake.

  2. Very nice…. it’s hard to believe that I once lived up near the top of one of them peaks. Seems like another life altogether.

    • That would have been one hell of a place to live…and yes, it’s funny how those lives seem to pass like that…all those ones we leave behind while taking on the next one….

  3. Looks pretty bleak, but then, most everything does at that time of year, before most of the shoots push through. Lovely background, though!

    • Yes, a little bleak during that time of awakening and transition…. I rather like that background, too!

  4. l Scott I never realized Utah was so beautiful until was working for the railroad crews up in Wyoming and driving thru Wyoming, Utah, and Idaho it is a lot more than I thought then you start posting your beautiful mountains and then I need. Thank you for sharing your talents with the rest of us.

  5. We have a Goshen New Hampshire but unfortunately you’ll never see views like that there.

    • I would imagine that wherever we find a town with such a name, it probably has something to do with this: “And thou shalt dwell in the land of Goshen, and thou shalt be near unto me, thou, and thy children, and thy children’s children, and thy flocks, and thy herds, and all that thou hast…” Genesis 45:10…..but that’s just a guess…. 😉

  6. That’s really pretty with the turning seasons!

    January 8, 2014 at 7:05 pm

    • I like that time of change, too, with the snow still on the mountains providing such a beautiful background….

    Absolutely stunning! What I wouldn’t give to see those in person and climb the mountains in the snow.

    • It’s a real treat, James. I’m very fortunate to have them so close….

      January 13, 2014 at 8:08 pm

  8. Beautiful!!

    • My kind of wonderful, Adrian!

  9. I cannot imagine living and working in the shadow of these mountains! I think I’d be paranoid. It’s as if some huge primordial creature emerged here. (And I reckon it did, actually.) The mountains are imposing. And your photograph captures that perfectly.

    • Oh, and I cherish being so close to them, George…I absolutely love having them right there. I still look at them every single day and marvel at them…truly. 🙂

  10. The scale of those mountains is impressive……….and while I’m here, may I comment on your stunning photo of the candelabra twig, as I wasn’t quick enough to get one in there…….less is definitely more. Well done Scott.

    January 14, 2014 at 5:02 pm

    • Those mountains and their brothers are everywhere here, John…at least in this part of my world. And thank you for your kind words about the candelabra twig…I found a near stark beauty in that scene…and yes, with less being more.
