Liberty Park, Salt Lake City – Cottonwood Abstracts

As some of you might recall, I recently returned to Salt Lake City for my first visit since leaving there almost three years ago.  You might also recall that when I did live there, I frequented Liberty Park numerous times…it was a favorite destination for my lunch-time walks and Saturday morning drive-abouts.

Liberty Park was such a favorite place of mine that I even dedicated a separate “Category” to it because I made so many photographs there that I later featured here on the blog.

After having lived in the desert for over 20 years, before moving to Salt Lake City, it was nearly mind-bogglingly amazing (to me) to see trees of such stature…of such age…and in the Spring and Summer, so marvelously adorned with millions (?) of leaves that provided such excellent shade.

My return visit to the park found me staring skyward again, very likely looking like a tourist…again…amazed…and in awe….

I believe that I have shared this link in at least one other post on Liberty Park, but here it is again for those of you who might be interested in the park and its amenities…click here….

And if you’re interested in the trees themselves, you can click here to read a very small narrative about their presence in the park.

And lastly, you can click here to be taken to a continuous scroll of all of the posts that I have shared on Liberty Park, as found by clicking on the “Liberty Park” category at the far bottom right corner of this page.  Coincidentally, the first post is from six years ago next week…April 9, 2011…..

Thanks for visiting….

  1. The late 1800’s eh? Amazing they survived this long but people are obviously glad they did.

    Scrolled the photos . . . I knew most of them, but a couple I had either forgotten or missed before. Nice.

  2. Yes, trees are the most magnificent adventures of nature; both mighty and grand, and walking amongst them is a wonderful experience. A world devoid of them would be barren indeed. I loved exploring your memories. I do hope that the little one got to go canoeing again.

  5. Your appreciation for the place and the trees shines through – it’s good that you had a chance to go back, and I hope you will again before too long. The snowy park photos you took must make you drool in Phoenix summers! I like the way you concentrated on this one aspect, or slice, of the Cottonwoods – the complex patterns their trunks and branches make.
