Wasatch Mountains

Linking to:
Friday's Fences
Fridays My Town Shoot Out 
Weekend Reflections 

During Christmas I was at my daughter's near Roosevelt, Utah. 

Backyard with neighboring cows (looking east toward Roosevelt).

Birthday party for little N.  She calls her sister her baby. After all everyone called her baby for some time before they started calling her by name. Blind reflections in the window door.

On my way home going through Heber City and Provo Canyon, I took some photos of Deer Creek Reservoir and the backside of the Wasatch Mountains (part of the Rocky Mountains).  The weathermen are now saying things like the Wasatch back when they talk about snow conditions in Park City and Heber, Utah.

This ranch is close to Heber, Utah.


Reflections - Wasatch Back


Deer Creek Reservoir partially frozen.

Driving through Provo Canyon, there are two tunnels that pass through the mountain.  Just beyond that is the turn off for Sundance, Robert Redford's home and ski resort.


This is my town on Thursday morning - foggy and starting to snow.

The winter images look so pretty! Luckily the roads seem to be cleared from snow and well to drive.

Great photos. Love the iced up Deer creek shot.

The frozen lake is striking but I like the first shot best. It really depicts the cold conditions.

It's nice to see your home area. Weather looks similar to ours, except for not yet had the snow, but next week will be.
The kids are very cute.
