Out and About in So Utah Pix Intensive

Last weekend I met up with friends in Torrey Ut for a few days of kicking tires, riding, and for me, picture taking. Here are some shots I took....

Just outside of Cedar City, heading up UT 14. It was good to get out of the heat!


At Cedar Breaks Park on UT 148 near Brian Head:


Here is the same place, but a slightly different angle and light....


At Cedar Breaks, I got off the bike to take some pix...


In Mexico, you have to watch out for Topes. On 143, it's these critters!


It was pretty cold up on Cedar Breaks...the high 40's. Fall is here. We descended down to US 89, and headed east on UT 12. Here is a shot from the visitor parking at Red Rock Canyon.


Shot from the side of the road at the same location. I threw a polarizing filter on my 10-22 mm lens for this one.


UT 12 is an amazing road. This is in the Escalante area looking northeast, I believe.


I never get tired of the scenery in this portion of the west, and Fall is the perfect time to come here. The sun is low, the colors are rich, and the tourists are comparatively scarce!


Rain!


I took a day off riding to walk around Torrey and take some images. I walked up this trail, but it started raining pretty hard, and I wasn't dressed for the occasion. Next year I plan on walking back into this canyon...too sandy, IMHO for the GSA.


I took shelter under the stairwell of this structure.




In Torrey, even the irrigation ditches can be worthy photo ops!


Here is Bikeopotamus posing near the summit on UT12. It snowed here the day before.


Here is my obligatory food shot. If you want a great burger, I suggest "Slackers" in Torrey:


And, that wrapped up Torrey. 625 scorching miles home across the Nevada deserts and I was home!

Cheers,
Steve

I know what you mean....endless fall colors and extraordinary vistas are many miles from where I live!

Thanks for looking,

Steve

Right on, Steve! Those are some good motorcycle roads. Lots of sheep around Cedar Breaks this summer.

Keep posting! Thanks.

Ok, here are a few more....this one is up by "Duck Village," I believe its called:


Nearly the same shot, a little different light.


Magnificent vistas, looking north.


Up on Utah 12.


Too much good stuff to shoot in the fall! I envy those who live closer to this magical place.

Steve

Thanks for the words. Utah, SW Colorado, and the PNW in my opinion, stand among some ot the best places to take pictures!

If Utah, was, um, a bit more tolerant, I could live here spending my days shooting here!

Cheers,
Steve

Hey Mike,

Thanks for the words. Good talking to you. I'm looking forward to trying out some of the roads we talked about at the Off Road Show.

I will check out your pix this afternoon.

cheers,
Steve

We were there with the wife's cage a couple weeks ago. Great after the tourist crowds are gone. Took in a great play in Cedar City. The Shakespeare festival is year around (I guess), and they have some fabullous plays. Just buy your booze before Sunday, and early in the eve, or your goin' dry. But thats ok, drink in the scenery instead.
