Driving through Cottonwood Canyon

All above were taken during our drive through Cottonwood Canyon. We had been out hiking that morning and were heading back to Park City to have a late lunch. Brett was driving and I was hanging out the window taking pictures along the way. We passed very few people on the road. I would rather be out here during the fall with the leaves bursting with color than in the winter where everything is one color, white.

Two of the buildings on the lake.  The dark clouds cast a nice reflection on the lake.

I had about an hour before it got dark so I headed over to the ponds close to work. The weather had slightly cooled off and the boardwalk and trail were packed with joggers and walkers. I saw very few birds or ducks.  I keep waiting for all of the wintering ducks to arrive but so far I’ve seen none. There has been a kingfisher hanging around work lately. This was my last trip around the lake after work for a while. Now it will be dark when I leave work.
