Rock Canyon Angles
Provo, Utah is located between Utah Lake and the steep escarpment of the Wasatch Mountains. One of the prominent background features is Rock Canyon a steep V shaped valley. Both sides of the Canyon are covered in rocks. I has been a popular recreation place for years, but has been under the shadow of private development. The rock outcropping on the right in the image is that part of the canyon in private hands. There were plans to start mining the rock out of the canyon, but fortunately, the City has purchased the property to preserve it from development. I am particularly happy about that purchase since I am moving about a block and a half from the mouth of the Canyon.
