Across the street from Lisa Falls is one of the entrances to the Little Cottonwood Canyon Trail. We only did a short hike since it was getting close to lunch and we were already hungry.
We came across a river with a little bit of water flowing so we followed it for a while.
We saw these red bugs all along the trail but I couldn’t find any info on them. Does anyone know what they are? They were everywhere.
More from our hike in Little Cottonwood Canyon in October.
During our vacation in Utah, we hiked up Lisa Falls in Cottonwood Canyon knowing that there would be very little water coming down due to the drought. It was a quick hike up and the view was amazing so even though we only saw a trickle of water, it was worth the walk.
Beautiful views along the hike. After the falls, we crossed the street and hiked the Little Cottonwood Canyon trail along the river. More on that later.
Heading back to town after a day of hiking,
Linking to Wednesday Around The World.
Brett and I spent a week in Utah earlier this month for vacation. We spent several days in Park City hiking around the mountains and several days in Salt Lake City seeing the sights and visiting a few parks. It was our first visit to the state. Our plan was to go after the summer crowds were gone but before snow season started. Brett has been to Park City several times skiing but had not been when there was no snow on the ground. Since it was Park City’s slowest month, it felt like we had the whole town to ourselves and the best part was it was peak fall leaf season. Everywhere you looked you saw a blanket of yellow, orange, red and even pink. Our first morning we got out early and drove through Cottonwood Canyon to hike at Donut Falls. I kept making Brett stop to take pictures along the way and most of the ones below were taken through the windshield while we were moving.
Leaving Park City, you could see the outline of the ski slopes.
More to come on this amazing trip.
