Jordan River morning….

I was driving around the Rose Park area of Salt Lake City yesterday morning looking for the access point to the Jordan River Walkway where I made this photograph a few years ago.  I knew I was in the general area, but couldn’t remember exactly where it was…until I was actually leaving and returning home after having given-up the search.

It wasn’t really a sad moment, though, thinking that I would miss the occasion to photograph that bridge in the Fall, as I found myself in this wonderful location just five blocks north of where I originally wanted to go.  There were no-parking signs along the street, so I parked at the Day-Riverside Library just west on 1000 North, took my time making photos from the street-bridge in both directions, and then walking a roughly half-mile loop south down to the next river-bridge and back.

Not bad for a little point-and-shoot camera….

  1. Nice fall colors and a peaceful scene (at least on the surface).

  3. It’s the guy behind the point ‘n shoot pushing the button that makes it such a great shot! Very lovely… bringing back memories of Utah in the fall (good ones!)

  4. And not bad for a city! But as Gunta says, it’s the mind (and heart) that do the real work, and it’s beautiful. your three views are each exceptional – and I love that you can find this sort of thing within city limits, that’s so cool. I just looked it up on the map – so close to the airport! Makes me long to visit Utah again. I will.

    • That’s something that I miss with living in this city, Lynn…it’s difficult (impossible?) to find scenes like this…or maybe I’ve just been here for so long that I don’t see them…. At any rate, it was a treasure to be up there again in such proximity to my favored natural splendor. And yes, the Jordan River goes all the way from Utah Lake to Salt Lake (close to the airport) and the walkway covers quite a bit of the distance. The part that I shared in the photos happened to be in a section of the older city where the vegetation is still “wild” and mature….
