From Salt Lake City down Spanish Fork Canyon, UT6 to Scofield Reservoir on one of the most beautiful, treacherous road around. It is a narrow canyon with a sheer wall on the east side of the road, a two lane highway, a little space then railroad tracks, a little space & then the river on the west side of the canyon and another steep wall. Lots of traffic, including large truck traffic. If anyone goes to sleep behind the wheel or drifts out of their own lane of traffic, there is a good chance of a huge accident. Once there is a wreck there is no room to clear the wreck or for emergency vehicles to do their job easily. Traffic can be backed up for hours. However, the scenery in wonderful. And I have no pictures from the canyon itself because you can't stop because of the traffic & the situation.
Scofield Reservoir is a favorite fishing spot in UT. We had never been there before & got there just in time for some great sunset photos. Not a snowflake in sight. We talked about how the weather forecasters were wrong again. On our way back we found the snow. It was a edgy trip back, snow coming straight at us while we drove.
