CAUTION - THE IS GOING TO BE A WEATHER GEEKY POST. PROCEED AT YOUR OWN RISK! Fog.
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.
A day of outdoor adventure in eastern Utah.
I woke up without an alarm at 4:30a. I sprung out of bed and got to work. Now that I was going to be doing an 11-12 mile hike, I had to pack differently.
While in general, it is a great to think of photography, and life for that matter, from a variety of perspectivies. But today, I chose to go singularly with the macro lens.
I woke up this morning more excited than normal. I was excited because I knew I was going to explore a new trail that I found last week.
I figured if I was going to risk my life on the narrow passageway, I might as well do it when I am most fortified and motivated.
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.
What are the chances? There are hundreds and hundreds of trails within 30 minutes of my house. It was Sunday morning after 8am, which in Utah, you barely see anyone. And I run into the same people riding their horses. Go figure.
Sometimes being in the wrong place works out fine. My hike today was an example of that.
