…a summer sunset picnic high in the mountains!
A couple of weeks ago, hubby and I took a drive up a popular mountain trail in northern Utah, USA named Skyline Drive to have a sunset picnic and capture some sunset photos. This trail is a 24-mile rocky dirt road located along the beautiful Wasatch Range mountains between Bountiful, Utah, and Farmington, Utah. The starting altitude is about 4,550 feet and climbs to about 9,200 feet. Along the way, you can see great mountain scenery, forests and spectacular views of the Great Salt Lake. We started this trail on the Bountiful side and were at the very top of this trail when we took the photo above. It was quite windy at the peak that day, making it difficult to hold the camera and tripod steady, but we still got some nice photos. (Bountiful is Utah’s second settlement after Salt Lake City, which is the state’s capital.)
