The beginning of October we drove home from Arizona via a ride over the mountains and through Brian Head rather that taking the Highway 20 to connect up to the I 15. It was a beautiful drive.
Nothing beats blue sky with clouds and autumn color.
It was lovely. This drive also takes one past Cedar Breaks and to an altitude of over 11,000 feet.
I especially enjoy the aspen trees in the Fall with their glittery leaves dancing in the wind.
We stopped at Duck Creek. Glen has found memories of stopping here with his sons some years ago as they drove to Utah for LDS Conference.
Duck Creek is a beautiful clear mountain stream.
The contrast between the evergreen pines and aspen was especially lovely.
Really, just lovely!
Duck Creek eventually flows into this small lake called Duck Lake.
And there were ducks!
Can you see them?
Autumn drives are the best!
