I discovered something when I arrived at the Silver Lake trailhead. It turns out that there are TWO Silver Lakes in the area. There is one that you get to from American Fork Canyon, which is the one to which I thought I was going to this morning, but from a different access point. Then there is the other one, which I drove to this morning.
As odd it may seem, it turns out that he was not the only naked person in the water. If you look two photos above, you will see a woman in the water up past her shoulders. I discovered after taking that picture and hike up to the main part of the springs, that she too was bathing naked. I noticed someone helping her cover up as she got out of the water.
Little did I know that I was hitting the sweet spot on that day. As soon as I got into Provo Canyon, I could tell there was a plenty of color. As I drove east into Heber, the color was intensifying. I was beginning to feel that I was in for a special treat.
It was an interesting week for hiking and photography. Here are some of the best of the best.
Summer Fun is the best fun. This post covers a backyard music fest, tubing the Provo River and multiple hikes.
I have now completed the BIG FIVE national parks in the Utah: Arches, Zion, Capitol Reef, Canyonlands, and now, Bryce Canyon. Without knowing it, I think I saved the best for last.
Then all of a sudden, I saw an American flag vigorously waving in the stiff breeze to my left. I started to walk toward it and then realized it was perched on the very edge of a sheer rock cliff.
I had some great hikes this week. Here are some of my favorite snaps from 3 different hikes during the week.
I made a video of some of my recent images. It really doesn't have anything to do with Easter other than today is the day I am publishing it and it is nice and relaxing.
As soon as I got out and shot some lazy pix from the bridge that crosses the river, I knew I had to do more. In fact, I went back and got a few more lenses and then started to really work the scene.
