It is usually the first weekend of October that the fall colors are at their peak. So I decided that I would go explore on Saturday and bring some snacks and find a spot in the mountains to listen to General Conference. So that is exactly what I did. And I am SO glad that I did. It was GORGEOUS! And hardly anyone around, which was also so nice.
During conference, I just sat in the back of my car and ate and listened while taking in the beautiful view. Before and after... I took my car a little off roading to really explore. I didn't realize that Provo Canyon connected to Hobble Creek Canyon in Springville. I went about half way there until the road was too rough and I turned back. But I saw a lot of new scenery that I had never seen before only passing a few people the entire time. I loved every minute of it and was stopping every 2 minutes to take pictures... I couldn't help it.
I never thought of myself of being the type of person to go up into the mountains by myself and just be there for hours... a lone. I have turned into that person though. Of course I would rather have company... but I didn't hate being up there by myself either. It was so beautiful and so peaceful. A day exploring the mountains is a day well spent.
