Dean ?

Looks like you're getting some
"lake effect" stuff rollin' in,
according to the Weather Channel.
You might have to get out and shovel
an inch or two of snow off the porch.
Here where I live, its cold enough
to snow. Love all your great photos!

I can imagine deer running around in
this picture. Not Reindeer, but Mule
deer. They love those Mahoganies!

Re: Dean ?

Larry, the snow hit a bit on the light side in the Orem/Provo area. I was able to get in a nice 8 mile hike on Y mountain today. I'm glad the deer love the mahogany bushes, as I'm not a big fan. Thanks for your comments.

Re: Dean ?

Well ... they don't call it CEDAR MOUNTAIN for
nothing. What's the difference between a CEDAR
and a MAHOGANY? I have to GOOGLE that one!

Thanks, Mister Enchantment!!! | : > )

Re: Dean ?

I still have to go back and get the highest spot of the Cedar range. I've been out there twice and the last time I cut it short because of the BYU Utah game. I did get to see some wild horses near where I took this picture. Beautiful animals.

You are right ...

I saw some wild horses out there, too. They
were all running or galloping ... came from nowhere, then disappeared over a ridge.

Where is the highest spot? Is it up by Lookout
Pass, or is that further to the south??? THANKS, Dean.

Great country, out there. Always carry a snow shovel with your camera. Just reminding you. Regards!!!

Re: You are right ...

I'm not sure where the lookout is but this topzone map will help give you an idea HERE

Also here is another resource HERE A snow shovel eh? I drove in via 8 mile spring road and then tried hiking up a ridge that dead ended. My next attempt will be a ridgeline to the north. Maybe I'll take my skiis : )

Have you ever heard the quote, "There's a very fine line between stupid and being clever."

Well, I had the Cedar Mountains CONFUSED with the Sheeprock Mountains. SORRY 'BOUT THAT!!!

Looks like you could go up WILDCAT CANYON.
Hey, by the time we get done TALKING about it, YOU could have ALREADY BEEN UP THERE and BACK!!!. That's what my grandmother always said.
Have fun, Dean. That's what it's all about!:)

Re: Dean ?

Hey, no problem, there are a lot of mountain ranges in Utah and even one in the desert called the "Confusion range". I have been in the Sheeprocks twice and managed to get to the highest point on my last visit. I went up via Black Pine canyon and it was all cross country. If the weather report improves here, I may try for the Cedar highpoint or the Simpson Mtn range highpoint, Indian Peaks this weekend.
Take care.

Sounds good !

Yes, I'm familiar with the black pines.
Looks like you're KNOCKING THEM DOWN, right off of
your LIST. Hey, did I say LIST? We all know whose keeping a LIST this time of year... AND
checking it twice; going to find out, WHO'S
been NAUGHTY or NICE. Have fun, Dean !!! !!!
