    Nice set of photos
     
  3. Great set, it’s too bad that you can’t show the 360 degree vastness of the area in a photo.

    Sorry I didn't reply sooner, went back down to the S.R. Swell for a few more days. Yes I would like to try some 360s in several Utah sites...we spent some time at the Wedge Overlook and that is a candidate for a marvelous 180 degree shot...panos screw it up.

    Hi, Utah is very high in elevation (much of the flatlands are over 4000', let alone the mountains) and it does get well below freezing in the winter.
    Central/Northern Utah mountains are popular for skiing even from out-of-state.

    It snows sometimes in the Nevada and California high deserts as well (even in Las Vegas).

    Utah Parks and Monuments are just otherworld. Grand expanses. Nice shots.

    A little trivia, some of the photos (5-7) are of the world famous Indian Creek rock climbing area, a destination for tons of local and even international climbers. The Wingate sandstone forms perfectly vertical cracks, one right after another. Picture 6 shows Bridger Jacks and the two Six Shooter towers (there are great views from the top, too!)
