As soon as I arrived at the trailhead to Lake Mary, I noticed a dark creature in the woods. I had to take a long look because I couldn't believe how close I was to a bull moose. A few other people noticed as well and we all began a photo-moose-a-palooza.
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.
A day of outdoor adventure in eastern Utah.
It was an interesting week for hiking and photography. Here are some of the best of the best.
We hiked in the 1.7 miles up to the intersection of the pipe and the end of one section of the trail. We dropped our packs and climbed up the steep path that houses the pipe
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.
They served me well over the past seasons, but they too, are tired. They are probably hurt as much as my feet hurt.
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.
The 4th of July weekend presented lots of holiday fun and also lots of hiking beauty. This post focuses on the hiking.
