Floating in the Air

The huge Mount Timpanogos appears to be floating in the air when shot from the south. The mountain is still mostly snow-covered due to a recent April snow storm. But Spring is on the way and most of the lower slopes were clear of snow by the afternoon. With its altitude of 11, 752 feet, it is the second highest mountain along Utah's dramatic Wasatch Front. The mountain is composed entirely of limestone and dolomite and has several notable caves including Timpanogos Cave, a National Monument.
