ELK
Resting among tall, golden grasses, a bull elk appears to be in prime condition for a fall rutting season. The magnificent set of pronged antlers is sharpened on tree bark or large rocks.

WASATCH RANGE
Emerging from behind a veil of clouds and cloaked in white, Mount Baldy heightens the dramatic winter setting. This peak rises to an elevation of 11,068 feet within the Wasatch Range. Over several hundred inches of fluffy snow crystals fall on these mountains each ski season creating a paradise for winter sports.

ZION NATIONAL PARK
The contrasting white snow decorating the red and pink rocks in Zion National Park can be both stunning and informative. Elusive wildlife, whose secret life normally escapes us, becomes highly visible in the winter because of tracks left in the snow. Extending over an area of 229 square miles, Zion exposes an incredible collection of rock formations.

RAINBOW BRIDGE NATIONAL MONUMENT
The world's largest natural bridge, Rainbow Bridge is an incredible natural wonder that arches to a height of 290 feet. It is located in a remote canyon of Lake Powell and is accessible by boat. Inspiring to experience, this magnificent landform is considered to be a sacred place by many American Indians.

CANYONLANDS NATIONAL PARK
The legacy of Canyonlands comes together in stone. It is a park spanning the heart of the Colorado Plateau. The upheaval of rock coupled with erosion has created balanced boulders, arches, buttes and immense canyons. In this spectacular amphitheater of rock, Angel Arch sits angled skyward as if guarded by the molar.

STRAWBERRY CACTUS
Vivid magenta flowers of the spiny strawberry hedgehog cactus are a delightful surprise to discover in the desert. They grow close to the ground along washes and rocky hillsides. When this brightly colored cactus is in bloom, it is a reminder that the desert is not a barren waste, but a land awakened from dormancy.

FLAMING GORGE NATIONAL RECREATION AREA
Flaming Gorge is designed for outdoor recreation, adventures and relaxation. With a lake extending for 91 miles, this area contains numerous campgrounds and access points. When the Green River was impounded, a large scenic reservoir formed. As it filtered into rugged canyons and gorges, a boater's paradise was created.

BRYCE CANYON NATIONAL PARK
Forbidding-Ominous-Enticing! All these words combined cannot begin to describe the feelings one has while experiencing a summer storm at Sunset Point with the sound of thunder ricocheting between the pink cliffs of Thor's Hammer, Queen's Castle, Temple of Osiris and then disappearing into Fairyland Canyon.

GREAT SALT LAKE
Nature's cruel joke in the arid west, the Great Salt Lake is one of the saltiest bodies of water on Earth. It occupies a large portion of Utah extending approximately 72 miles in length and 30 miles in width. Mineral-laden fresh water streams flow into it. There is no outlet except evaporation.

PAYSON LAKES RECREATION AREA
Several small lakes nestled amidst aspen groves and peaceful meadows, Payson Lakes can be discovered along the Nebo Loop Scenic Byway. All shades of reds, oranges, and yellows are splashed across mountain slopes as Nature brushes brilliant fall foliage. Trails into the Mount Nebo Wilderness can also be accessed here.

ALPINE SCENIC AUTUMN
The Alpine Scenic Loop near Sundance explodes with spectacular fall colors. Painted in brilliant oranges, reds and yellows, mountainsides of the Wasatch Range provide an unbeatable autumn display. Big tooth maple trees can usually be found growing on north-facing slopes in the Uinta National Forest. Their red leaves are so vibrant they glow!

NAVAJO LAND
Stretching to the heavens from wind-swept desert sands is an artistic collection of rock spires known as the Yei-Bi-Chei Rocks. The formation is located deep within Monument Valley where Navajos continue to live in their traditional ways herding sheep and farming. This land is sacred to the Navajo.

DEER CREEK STATE PARK
The lake is mostly frozen; ducks have moved on; the boats are docked and fresh snow covers the roadway - it must be winter at Deer Creek State Park. This is a time when wildlife wanders along the deserted lakeshore before seeking shelter and plants stripped of leaves stand silhouetted against the white of winter.
