A day away from the house for Mom and Dad

Saturday, September 18th, 2010

Mom and I decided that we needed to get away together for some time so we went to the mountains today and did some hiking and exploring.

At the Upper Provo River Falls

We have wanted to go to the Uintahs for a long time so we finally were able to arrange to be away for a day to do it today!

On our hike around Mirror Lake

(This was our first chance to get out together since our anniversary, almost two months ago so we felt like it was about time.) We saw lots of fall colors on the way, but strangely the fall colors were not particularly striking up there. It was probably because there are so many evergreens that the colors are not so apparent.

At Washington Lake. This and many of the lakes are at a very low level this fall.

There were clumps of yellow and orange here and there, sometime brilliant yellows were seen in the Quaking Aspen trees, but not everywhere. The mountains in Provo Canyon and northwest of Heber were covered in bright oranges and reds though. Hopefully we will get to see them again before the seasons change and the leaves fall off of the trees.
