The colors of autumn in Utah continue to impress me. This year such variety and intensity all across the mountains and I eagerly hiked through it all. One our anniversary, my wife and I drove to the scenic Alpine Loop in the Timpanogos mountains not too far past Salt Lake. We love this place and the proximity to the Robert Redford resort is very nice. The weather was moody as we arrived and we drove up the loop with stunning vistas. We started our hike on the Stewart Falls trail with the aspens exploding all around. But it was when we were on the trail and stumbled across the zenith of colors that I was taken in. The trees glowing softly in the fading light and the collection of colors truly moved the soul...autumn's palette.
