Twin Peaks from Dimple Dell Trail

It’s a sad song, but it struck me the other day that I have now been back in Arizona for longer than I had lived in Utah….and this little gem of a photo has been sitting in my “drafts” folder for over five years.  This particular day in March of 2013 found me walking the neighborhood trail called, “Dimple Dell,” and gazing eastward at the beautiful mass of rock and earth known generally as the Wasatch Mountains and specifically as Broads Fork Twin Peaks (only the western peak is visible; it’s the one on the right).  I had posted other images from the hike…maybe even some that looked very similar to this one…which probably explains why it was sitting in the “drafts” folder for so long.

Anyway, they are always bittersweet and tender moments when I look back and reflect upon what used to be in my backyard…at what was just a few minutes’ driving time from the house.  And there it is….

  1. Bittersweet is an interesting choice of words.

    . . . hopefully, memories can be enjoyed without diminishing what enjoyment can be extracted from one’s current situation.

  2. That’s a beautiful scene! A little different from the Arizona desert. Over the years, I have loved both.

  3. That’s such a melancholy place to be, wishing you were elsewhere. Sending sympathies, my friend! Sometimes pictures are what we’re left with. I guess it’s why we take them.

  4. They’re noble mountains, the Wasatch. One day, I’m sure you’ll be able to live near them again. I hope all is well with you, Scott!
