I continued my fall foliage tour of Utah by going somewhere a little closer to home. I can be at the mouth of Big Cottonwood Canyon, a popular ski destination, in less than 30 minutes.
I think the canyon is beautiful any time of year but particularly so during the fall. I love the yellow quaking aspens against the green of the pine trees.
I drove to the top of the canyon and hiked around Silver Lake. It was beautiful and, because it is a relatively easy hike, it was so relaxing. Is there anything better than the smell of pine?
The weather has been so beautiful this weekend! My fingers are crossed for next weekend because I have two more destinations on my fall foliage itinerary!
