With storms forecast later in the week, Dee and Joe and I decided it was a beautiful, cool morning to take the LaSal Pass. We could tell the south-west peaks were not so colorful from Moab, but the north-east side, however, piqued our interest so off we went to take a peek.
Rose hips had taken the place of wild rose flowers.
Not a lot of color here...but the cool breeze was nice.
Aspens teased with hints of yellow.
The Manti and LaSal Forests were combined in 1949. Today it covers 1.4 million acres. These forests have beckoned people for hundreds of thousands of years.
As far as colors go, a tease is all we got. What we did enjoy was a peaceful retreat, solitude, and quiet.
The relaxing sound of aspens clapping,
and beautiful landscapes is always calling.
Until next time,
