Aspen Heaven

 

Utah State Road 12, one of "America's Scenic Byways"

and considered one of the most beautiful, certainly lives up to

it's name.  When we first drove this road between Bryce Canyon

and Capitol Reef - it was so socked in with snow cloud that we

couldn't see a thing!  It raises nearly to 10'000 feet at one point

and we were in a near blizzard.  We were determined that we

would not miss this spectacular piece of scenery...

so we backtracked the next day - and were not disappointed!

Hmmmmm! Backtracking is not always a bad thing, then...
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Not at all! We were rewarded richly!
If I were to screw my eyes up Elizabeth, I could imagine this to be a lovely little pencil sketch.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I certainly like that idea, Chad!!
So many climates in your short trip.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Truly! Everything from 3000' feet and 75 degrees... to this! smile
Worth the second visit Elizabeth. I guess your byways are like English main roads smile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: It definitely was, Brian!
I suppose that's true!
This has to be one of your finest E. Have a big print made and put it on the wall
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Gosh, Bill - I'm very flattered! Thank you so much!
