A trip to the mountains

Yesterday my sister Peg posted a note on Facebook that she was taking a drive to the mountains in the afternoon if anyone would like to come.  After sitting around feeling bored all day, I jumped at the chance.   There are so many beautiful and accessible places we can go on a Sunday drive.  For this one, we headed up Weber Canyon, turned off towards Kamas and then took the road to Smith-Morehouse.  I'm not sure if this is considered part of the Uintahs -- you can certainly see the Uintah mountains from there.  But it was a great day for taking pictures and here are a few things we saw.
This last photo, I shot as I was just leaving my house and one of the tiny spotted fawns ran out in front of my car and down the street.  My camera was at hand, but I wasn't fast enough to get him before he was in the deep grass.  Darn.
