A Stroll Through Sundance Country

If you can take in the Fall Color in only one place on the planet for the year, then The Sundance Resort in Utah's Wasatch Mountains is a good choice. One look at the canyon, and you understand fully why "this is the place it all started" for Robert Redford.

Photographs fall so short of the actual splendor. But Sundance offers a photography course nonetheless. They'll teach you how to use all the features on your own camera, and then turn you loose on the most spectacular terrain you'll ever see.

This is the view the man himself sees whenever he's in residence this time of year. You can spot the top of the lifts.

The weather is incredible, and unseasonably warm here today, and the trails are full of admirers just like us taking in a soul full of scenery. Enough to get us through another year. . . .

I know of so many folks who took a fall outing this weekend. Were you one of them? If not, there's still time! I hope wherever you are you're getting a good dose of fall beauty.
Thanks for coming by!
Ciao! for now!

Hi Jackqueline, What lovely mountains are there. I am in the pacific northwest where I never tire of seeing ours. These look a little like on "the other side of the mountains" in Washington. Drier with less trees, not the thick forests. We went sight seeing last week in the mountains. If I am lucky, I will get hubby to take us for a drive today. Love your blog, we seem to have much of the same interests, so I will stop by again soon.
