We never know the path others are traveling

It saddens my heart that so many are sick and so many are dying. May we at this time pause and have a moment of silence for those that we have lost. They are our family members, friends

r You may have noticed that the days are getting shorter and the mornings are getting cooler. As we move into the last half of September we will start seeing some color change on our mountain slopes. First, the oak brush turns red and then the aspen trees start turning to a golden yellow. By the end of the month and into early October the fall colors really start to mature.

Be prepared to grab your camera and venture out into the country side for viewing of these dramatic fall colors. Right here in our south Utah County back yard is one of the best fall color drives in all of Utah, the Nebo Loop Scenic Byway. The photo at the top of this article was taken on the Nebo Loop drive. This paved, narrow, winding road gets a lot of traffic and you need to be slow and patient with other drivers enjoying the colors. If you do the drive early in the morning you will find less traffic. Just be safe on this popular fall color drive.

If you have a high ground clearance 4X4 SUV or ATV the Pole Haven Road, which is a rocky road off of the Left Fork of Hobble Creek, leads to Camel Pass and a dramatic view of Little Rock Canyon looking down on Mapleton and Springville. This scenic back country road eventually connects with the Squaw Peak Road and Provo Canyon. This is a great fall color trip if you have an off road vehicle.
