The Salt Lake Valley

This is Little Cottonwood Canyon, looking west down the canyon to the Salt Lake Valley. Little Cottonwood Canyon is a classic U shaped valley created by glacial action when the valley was a huge lake, called Lake Bonneville. I have lived in two worlds, the low deserts of Arizona and the high mountains of Utah. They don't have a lot in common and I miss the mountains but don't miss the desert, especially this week with temperatures in of 116 degrees.
