Provo Canyon... How I Pictured the Old West.

Member Rating 4 out of 5 by ladyanne47 on February 24, 2006

Provo Canyon, along the Provo River of northeastern Utah, is a beautiful and scenic drive in any season. I happened to be visiting Utah in January, where I found a subtle mixture of muted colors in the wintry months. It was a snowy day and the sky was a steel blue gray. I was continually amazed at the diversity of the Utah landscape, and even though the mountain views were numerous, each one showed a different shape, color, and depth of beauty in itself. The contrast of textures made wonderful photographs, and I was in heaven as I stopped to click away at each spot that caught my eye. I tried to imagine how this Canyon looked in the summer months, which I am sure is totally different than I was seeing.

As I was growing up in the 1950s, watching Roy Rogers, Gene Autry, and Zorro on Saturday Morning television, I became intrigued with the West. Now as I visit Utah, that West has become alive in me again.
