A tour of Wasatch, Utah: Part 3

Part 3 of my little series of photos of the Wasatch National Park east of Salt Lake City. I visited there last week for work and got a chance to escape and explore the mountains a bit. Needless to say, I loved the snow and the trees and the roads…such a great time.

A tour of Wasatch, Utah: Part 2

The second part of my series of photos taken in the Wasatch National Park just east of Salt Lake City, Utah. Such an amazing drive, temperatures dropped into the teens, it was snowing and the views were awesome.

I loved the little bush/tree on top of this mini-peak.

Hope this guy doesn’t have to go anywhere soon.

Great tree overlooking a little valley.

A balancing act.

Roads and roads…and I still have a few more road shots.

A tour of Wasatch, Utah: Part 1

Wasatch National Park is just east of Salt Lake City and essentially is nothing but high, snowy mountains and low creeks where the valleys are. I was able to get away from work a little early yesterday and had a good amount of time to explore. I took waaaay too many photos, so this is just the first entry in a little series I’ll be doing.

This was shot from a cemetery in Dell’s Dimple as I approached the Wasatch area. I loved the clouds and the big tree on the left.

Green, brown…interesting mixtures.

I took many, many shots from the road…this is one with falling snow and swirls of it sweeping across the roadway.

See, more roads! Powerlines suck usually, but I didn’t mind these.

These Aspen trees are without leaves and really looking amazing against these hills. Would love to see them in the summer!

Visiting the Mormon Temple

Last night the group I am with while working in Salt Lake City decided to head downtown for dinner, and in particular, they wanted to see the Salt Lake Mormon Temple. I’d never seen it before, probably not even in pictures, and it was an impressive campus of buildings and architecture.

Below are just a few photos of the place, I have a couple of others I may post this weekend if I get a chance to process them as HDRs like I want to. My work computer doesn’t have all the tools on it I’d like. Specifically, there was a pretty cool water fountain that I took some long exposures on and it might turn out very cool.
