The Canyon Overfloweth

Those who are regulars on this blog, or on any of my social media outlets (@workingitoutnow on Twitter and IG), know that I spend a lot of time in Provo Canyon. The mouth to the canyon is about 2 miles from my house.

I am usually going into the canyon to avail myself of the myriad of hiking trails that if offers. However, for the past 2 weeks I have been going in almost daily to enjoy the amazing show of colors its millions of trees, bushes and flowers are providing.

When I was driving in the canyon this morning, the colors were so rich, so intense, that I literally had to force my self to stop looking. It was becoming dangerous because I was looking for so long.

This post is basically just a photo blog of some of my favorite pix from the past several days. If you see one you especially like, leave a comment and let me know.

These last few pix of the helicopter are super cool to me. First, I love aircraft and second, this helicopter was ferrying telephone poles and construction supplies to a mountaintop as they were extending powerlines across the canyon.
