Beautiful Mountains

Ah, the Wasatch mountains. They were full of color and grandeur this weekend in October. I love these mountains. Growing up at their base made me feel safe. While living in Iowa they were one of the things I missed the most. Every time we would travel to SLC the mountains seemed to grow larger and more grand. I am glad the kids have grown to love them as well. These mountains are "home" to them also thanks to many trips to visit grandparents, hike, camp and ski. Next summer we want to tackle Lone Peak, the highest point seen in the top photo. Bell Canyon's (bottom photo, left) waterfall has been a favorite hike with it's raging water and granite cliffs, just a short mile to the trail head from Grandma and Grandpa Spens' home in Sandy.
