wildflowers at alta
The Cottonwood Canyons Wildflower Festival is not until next weekend but I went up to Alta today for a sneak preview. There were a ton of people but most of them were taking the shuttle up to Albion Basin and walking around there; once I got on the Catherine's Pass trail I hardly saw anyone. Here are a bunch of photos I took - I'm not nearly as good a photographer as H, unfortunately - but you can still get a feeling for what it looks like up there. Gorgeous, just gorgeous.

If you're planning to visit SLC and find yourself here, specifically looking for information on restaurants, click on the labels below - "beer," "breakfast" and "non-breakfast eating" - and all my posts with those tags, and thus restaurant reviews and/or addresses, etc., will come up.
