Great to see many still tuning in and following along, a sincere thanks.

Going back north tonight, I present: Mount Timpanogos- home of Sundance ski resort, location of Redford's Jeremiah Johnson.

Fall colors make the northern washatch/uinta/cache forests special as the colors turn. These pics are from about 2 weeks ago, just as yellow and red were appearing.

Just passed Sundance, entering the Uinta NF and the twisty narrow stuff over the top

Now on/in the Alpine loop- narrow road with some switchbacks (20-25 posted speed )
