In spite of the weather the past few days we’ve managed to get out for some walks. On Monday we drove a few miles up Provo Canyon to Nunn’s Park, where we parked and walked along the Provo River Parkway to Bridal Veil Falls and beyond.
It’s an impressive 607’, with a steep hiking trail to the to top of the falls. With thunderstorms all around we decided this wasn’t a good idea, but we saw quite a few people going up and down the trail. And playing in the falls.
The next day a woman’s body was found here by another hiker but it hasn’t been determined if she fell or committed suicide. Or was pushed?
Tuesday we just stayed close to home and walked along the river trail and out on the jetty at the lake. Debbie arrived that afternoon, happy to be out of the rain, snow and cold in the Tetons. We got out of there just in time. Then we did some laundry, dodging thunderstorms. Exciting day.
Until the ski season begins you can take your mountain bike up the lift and ride the ski trails back down. No, thanks.
We drove a few miles past Sundance to the Aspen Grove trailhead, where we hiked a couple miles to Stewart Falls. The aspens are just beginning to change color here.
A couple of the Sundance homes we could see from the trail. How the other half lives.
It was in the mid 40s, windy, with dark clouds hanging overhead. Not long after we left the falls it began snowing. Hard! It was better than cold rain and about halfway back it stopped and the sun actually came out for a little while.
We really like the Provo area and would come back again. Today we’re off to Torrey.
Brian and Leigh, this will be your view next week. And it looks like the weather will be beautiful.
