    Hidden gems: Utah.


    Even though we're into July the long winter past still lingers in the alpine. We savored it a few weeks back but that was when it was still freezing at night. No longer so: Now it's a slushy mess where it hasn't become outright lakes and bogs.



    Down in the valley our trail systems have at last emptied out because the sun is set to broil with scant shade on offer.



    Which is why a few days ago we found ourselves exploring a new alpine zone out west in Utah.







    We went in search of cool temps and greenery. We found those and so much more.















    Camp that night at 10k' was exquisite, with wide open meadows, water gurgling from everywhere, birdsong filling our heads, and not another human in sight.



    Driving out the next day was exquisite in it's own right.



    Thanks for checkin' in.

    Utah may be the hidden gem; but it's the artistic eye that is able to capture the colors and contrasts. Each photo like a work of art. Nobody does it better then Mike. Thank you for sharing your ride with the rest of us!

    There's nothing on earth like the mountains when the wildflowers are in bloom. However, the swarming biting insects are usually close behind.
