Trees of Solitude, originally uploaded by LeggNet.

After a few hints of warmer temperatures in Northern Utah during the past few weeks, winter came back to visit recently. We have had a couple fairly substantial storms during the past seven days.

In honor of this new snow, here is a capture made earlier this season in Big Cottonwood Canyon. This canyon, East of Salt Lake City, is the home of Brighton and Solitude , two of Utah’s many ski resorts.
