Recently, at my son’s invitation, I drove with him and one of my closest friends to this lookout over Utah Valley. It’s a 20 minute winding road to get here, highlighted by beautiful fall colors.
There are moments in which good company, and a view from above are all that matter.
I love in this moment the reaching view of Utah Lake, the reds and oranges of these Wasatch Mountains, the nestled buildings and community in the valley that is Provo and Orem, the clouds turning pink in the setting sun.
Shortly after taking this photo, a 60s-something woman, strapped to paraglide, ran off the mountain side, and joined a couple of hawks in search of thermal lift.
