A Sneak Peek

Gopher Flats
Moab, UT
September 13, 2017

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,
 shadows dancing, 

and beautiful landscapes is always calling.
Until next time, 



  1. Love those peaceful trips through the wild. Doesn't get better than Aspens and meadows!

  2. Nice 'walk' in the woods. A bit different from your sandstone outings, but most enjoyable to ride along!

  3. The three of you had a wonderful day. Beautiful landscape! The photo taken from the jeep, capturing the window frame with the landscape in the background, is great. I like it a lot!

  4. What a very nice drive:) Sure looks a lot like fall with the leaves on the road. Hope the weather is finally cooling off for you.

  5. Looks like your sneak peek turned into a touchdown! Great photos as usual.

  6. Our friends from here met up with Dee a few years ago in Moab and she introduced them to off-roading - they had a blast with her.
