Southern Utah Valley
This early morning view of Utah Valley shows the south end of Utah Lake, Provo, and Springville and Spanish Fork off in the distance. If I were to zoom in, you could also see Payson on the far left horizon. Because of the wet winter, the grass is long and green. But with the summer sun, the grass is drying out and we have already had a couple of fires on the hills surrounding the valley. We live close to the Wasatch Mountain on the east side of the valley and so we do not get morning sun until well into the day. In fact, in the winter, we only get a few minutes or hours of sunlight because we have a hill on the south also.
