Mount Nebo, Utah
At 11,933 feet above sea level, Mount Nebo is the highest peak in the Wasatch Mountain range in Utah. The mountain is not as dramatically visible from the valleys as some of the other peaks such as Mount Timpanogos, but it is certainly dramatic from Nebo Loop Road. The Loop Road is designated as the Mount Nebo Scenic Byway. The ridge line of the range culminating with the north peak seems to float over the lower hills. This photo was taken from the 8000 foot level and you can see that Spring is just now coming to the mountains. The aspen trees are just getting their leaves. We spent a very cold night camping at about this level on the mountain just before this photo was taken.
