Early Snow and Fall Color at Silver Lake
Big Cottonwood Canyon, Wasatch-Cache National Forest, Utah, 2008
Silver Lake sits next to Brighton Ski Resort at road's end in Big Cottonwood Canyon. A looped path equipped with boardwalks on either side of the Solitude Nordic Center enables pleasant walking around the lake over level terrain that is suitable for all ages. That walk is especially beautiful beginning in late September, when the aspens turn shades of gold, orange, and red. I made this image one morning as an early September snowstorm was clearing.
