Utah's Great Outdoors


This Wednesday's corner view is entitled "The Great Outdoors". With Utah, it's impossible to not mention the mountains. Possibly my favorite thing about Utah's landscape is our mountains. This weekend we went boating on Utah Lake. I was only able to get two pictures and this is the better of the two. In Utah there is a plethora of places, to hike, bike, climb, ski.. If you're the outdoorsy type. This is the place.

I have to say thanks again to Jane in Spain for creating a way to see the world from my computer. I like this weekly corner view because it forces me to be creative with my photography and helps me realize what a wonderful corner I live in. (I refuse to use pictures I have already taken, so every week it's a fun little project to get out and see Utah from my camera lens.) Thanks again Jane!

Other corner views today..

It's beautiful scenery: lakes and snow-capped mountains. I'd like to hike there.

Good for you! And you're right this weekly corner view really forces you to be creative and makes you aware of all the beauty that you normally take for granted in your own corner. Thanks for the beautiful pictures.

Wow ... that is really beautiful ! I have driven through Utah ... on a road trip from Colorado to Nevada and back. I didn't see anything like this ... just big orange rocks and dried up lakes. I wonder if I was in the wrong place or there at the wrong time ?

Jeannette said...

Oh WOW...!
Mark has been daydreaming about us travelling through the US and with pictures like these I just have to say...I have my suitcase packed and let´s go!
Have a great day, Jeannette

How pretty! That looks like a post card.
Coming from one flat state (Illinois) and now living in another (Florida), I get very excited about topography.
