Mountain Majesty

The mountains have started to lose their mantel of snow. Here we see the backside of Mount Timpanogos from the Alpine Loop. We drove up to where the road was still blocked by snow and then got out and walked a ways on the frozen surface of the snow. We would have gone further but the trail became slippery with ice. The weather was beautiful with dark blue sky and fluffy white clouds to set off the snow covered slopes. You can see the distinct bedding of the limestone rock that makes up most of the mountain.
