Winter in Utah can look really magical especially after a large snow storm, and this year we’ve had a good amount of snow, so I was determined to use it in this weeks shot. I set out with my wife on a beautiful and very chilly Sunday afternoon to head up to the mouth of Little Cottonwood canyon to a trail head that promised some spectacular views of snow covered trees, a river with snow frosted banks and rocks with granite cliffs in the background. Can you imagine what that would look like? Me too, unfortunately the trail was gated and locked for the season (I have no idea why.) So onto the back up plan a park on the east bench, but that didn’t pan out as well (to much deep snow hiking for our time limit – the sun was setting fast)

So we headed to the back up to the back up (you’ll see next week that this is going to be a trend this year) Good ‘ol Wheeler Farm is almost always open and what’s more fun than trudging through shin high snow in 10 degree weather and losing all feeling in your extremities? Well it’s worth it at least…

Thanks for taking the time to look, I hope you’ll come back for more!

Happy Shooting!
