Big Cottonwood Canyon, Utah

Hop in!  The drive from downtown Salt Lake City into Big Cottonwood Canyon, which is about 12 miles southwest, was amazing.  I love mountains, and this trip had mountains-a-plenty.  I was a passenger for this drive, so I could be trigger-happy on the camera shutter.

Heading west on I-80:

South on I-215, along the eastern edge of the city:

I think we're on Wasatch Blvd. here:

OK, we have turned east into the canyon... now up and up and up and up, and the mountains change around every turn...

Some nice fall colour:

Further up, lots of leaves are off the trees already:

... and we arrive at our hiking destination, Donut Falls.  Don't go away, photos of that are coming up next...
