More pictures from the Flume Trail







My most favorite trail is only five minutes from my house.  It goes clear up into the High Uintah (you-in-tah) Mountains if you have the time and inclination to hike miles and miles. It's only 1.5 miles to the bridge.  The hike is great for morning exercise or slower strolls with a camera.

For more information on the history of the flume and the Dry Fork sinks, where the water disappears, look here.

I'm jealous that you live that close to such a beautiful hiking trail! I have to get in the car like a sucker and drive to get to a trail like that.

I'm jealous of where you live PERIOD.... I'm glad you enjoy hiking, Loran. I do too... I'd rather hike than walk in our neighborhood (which we do).. Hiking especially in the woods or mountains is just so refreshing! One never knows what they will see.. Love that little yellow flower. How Sweet.

Have a great day, Friend!!!
Hugs,
Betsy

It's amazing to have these nature trails so close to home! I love how our bush rides are (still) just minutes away. I added you to my list of blogger friends Loran! I've been following you for a long time with the updating sidebar on Ishtar News, but now you're up on amongst the mahimanci [important!] links on the new site too. Always enjoy your images, thoughts and reflections! Will write you an email soon!!

What a lovely hike. The buttercups are delightful, especially the one the fly likes.

Very silly I know, but does anyone else think that the hiking poles in the first photo also look like broomsticks that the people are about to take off on?

Ps - I also love the quote you have on your header.
