Lookin north
to Dixon Peak, the one just beyond the Santaquin ridge which has the antenna set up and building on it and a road. See this TOPO. Check out the heavy haze that is covering Utah valley. Could you call it smog? It was pretty bad but the reason I enjoyed this shot is that the peak down the ridgeline that has the antenna and building on it is one that i have looked at many times from down below. Some hikers I met had just come up this ridgeline which looks like something i'd like to do also. Click the pic to get the full resolution shot of Dixon Peak.

the MIDDLE EARTH photos? Excuse me, Dean.
I love your photos - the SMOG isn't your fault. We ALL have our faults, just look at the San Andreas in California. That's a BIG fault.

Did you see Dennis's BIG BANANA SLUG photo. Really errie & creepy - just in time for Halloween. Take care of yourself, Dean !!!(The slug is catching up to the BEAR.)

Nice photo, Dean. Dixon Peak looks like a good mountain to climb in that area.

Definition of smog: smoke or other atmospheric pollutants combined with fog in an unhealthy or irritating mixture except in Utah where it's called haze.

Haze=Smog. Makes sense since on this day it was sure hazy down below. The air was clear where I was but I hated to have to descend into that stuff. Thanks for your comments.

SMOG is a four-letter word!
