Fall is here, how fun to take our annual autumn trip up Utah's canyons. This view is Utah Lake from the top of Payson Canyon drive over Utah Valley where I went to college and lived almost 25 years marrying and starting my family here. I moved back here from California after my divorce.
Up Santaquin Canyon in Central Utah, the leaves are just starting to turn but as you drive higher up the canyons the trees are more colorful. It's so peaceful and no freeways.
Even time for a family picnic complete with a weiner roast over a campfire with my cousins Marion and Norm, my hubby, and our 90 year old aunt Ethel who loves the outdoors.
We are all retired now and have time to enjoy being together, though we don't do it often enough. It's soon winter and we'll all hide indoors to keep warm. Picnics will be just a memory.
