The Wasatch Front is a dramatic mountain escarpment that runs north and south through northern Utah. The Wasatch Mountains form the eastern side of most of the northern Utah valleys, including Salt Lake Valley and Utah Valley. I have spent a good deal of my life along and in the Wasatch Mountains. One of the smaller canyons, is Rock Canyon, highly visible from Provo, Utah. It is a lovely canyon for a quick hike into the mountains and during the spring runoff, the creek can be running and adds a melodious touch to the hike. I love the desert in Arizona where I live, but I also love the mountains.
