Nothing beats a drive through the Alpine Loop in the fall! Take a virtual tour through the canyon with a stop at Sundance Resort.
I have this vision. A vision of what I want this site to be. How I want it to look, the kind of things I want to share. And I will have it one of these days.
But it’s going to take some time. So in the meantime, I’m going to be diverting away from recipes every now and again. Starting today. (But don’t worry. The focus of this blog will always be food. This is just a little side project.)
When I do finally get that design update, I will have a section that I have finally decided to call Taste and Tell Destinations. I love to travel, but it is going to be so much more than travel. It’s going to be discovering what is in my back yard. It is going to be discovering the people who make the foods and the products that we all love so much. It’s going to be a place where I can share – sometimes with way more photos than people want to see, but really – this section is about sharing – and I’m such a visual person. I like to share a lot sometimes!!
Sometimes there will be a lot of words. Sometimes, I’ll let the photographs do the talking. And one day (hopefully sooner than later) these will have their own little section here on Taste and Tell. So if you are only here for the recipes – don’t fear. Hopefully I’ll only be taking over this main stream for a little while – and in the meantime, I promise that the recipes aren’t going anywhere, and that these kinds of posts will only take over every once in awhile.
I live in an amazingly beautiful state. There really isn’t a day that I don’t look up to the mountains and marvel at the beauty that surrounds me.
Every fall, the leaves are amazing. It had been a few years since I had driven the Alpine Loop, and I knew it was time to go again.
The Alpine Loop is a 20-mile stretch of road that goes through American Fork Canyon to Provo Canyon. I started by driving up the American Fork Canyon side, through the Uinta Forest, then down the Provo Canyon side. And of course, we had to make a stop at Sundance!
I was a little worried when we started our drive up – the leaves were still green at the bottom of the canyon. But as we drove up, the brilliant yellows defintiely showed themselves. The road is a bit narrow in spots, but that just forces you to slow down and enjoy the ride – and the view. There are lots of places to pull off of the road to take photos or to simply marvel at the beauty that is around you.
I had 2 kids with me – and they were a bit on the grumpy side after my constant stopping, so we decided to get out of the car at Sundance, take a walk around, and get some snacks.
Definitely my sugar lover – a cookie in one hand and a sucker inthe other!!
I’m not a skiier, so I have to admit that I’ve only ever been to Sundance when there is no snow on the ground. But I love it – such a quaint ski resort!!
There were a lot more red and orange leaves on the Provo Canyon side, (including at Sundance), but there aren’t very many turn offs on the road. But believe me – it is so amazingly gorgeous this time of year!!
I hope you will all enjoy this new little adventure I’m going on. This world that we live in amazes me. And photography inspires me. I hope that I can inspire you, too, with what I am sharing!
