Gentri Lee: Fall Scenery- Check!

10.18.2011

Fall Scenery- Check!

One of the other items I was able to cross off my "Fall to-do List" was- Go up the canyon and enjoy the beautiful fall scenery. CHECK!

I actually went by myself this time. It was so wonderful to be able to wander around alone with only the sounds of nature- The crunch of the leaves under my feet, the rushing of the river, the wind whistling through the trees. Heaven.

The colors are at their peak right now. They're more vibrant and bountiful than I have ever seen. The mountain sides look as if they're covered in flames.

One of my dad's favorite things is the Abraham Lincoln that you can see as you exit the canyon... This baby formed all by himself.

Why hello Mr. President.

I was even able to cross yet ANOTHER item off my list last night and I can't wait to share that with you! Man, I am on a roll!

P.S. The Chevron Pillow Giveaway closes tomorrow at Midnight! So if you have yet to enter, you better fix that! Savannah's actually hosting another giveaway over at her blog and she'd love you to check it out! :)

Such awesome photos! What kind of camera do you have? I love fall scenery, I snapped so many shots on the way to and from my college campus two weekends ago....so many trees, so many colors, I love it!

It seems pretty obvious. said...

These photos are amazing! The colours never get tha vibrant here..we've already passed out "colour peak" like two weeks ago. Everything is turning brown and grey now :/ But I guess everything has it's charm :)

Julie A. said...

Ha! I never knew about the Lincoln face... I'll have to look for it the next time Jon and I drive through the canyon.

Sarah said...

It seriously is so pretty here in the fall! I love it! ALso your boots...where can I get them!!

Angela of "Grahangela" said...

G-O-R-G-E-O-U-S!! One of the only things I don't like about living in Southern California is the lack of season changes, especially leaves changing in fall. I only get to imagine the crispness in the air as I wear my fall boots and sweat a little.

Thanks for sharing these wonderful photos!

Courtney B said...

Beautiful!! Eric was just telling me that he wants to take me for a drive up.... oh crap. Is it mount Timpanogas? I need to learn more about where I live haha! Anyway he wants to go for a drive and check out the scenery! (I was shocked when he told me that!)
Is this up Provo canyon??

Janette said...

What a magical place Gentri!!! Would love to go there... So I take that it's pretty safe to venture out alone eh? No mountain lions or bears or things that could eat me? I'm paranoid about such things...
