The Winter Where We Stood

“There, in silence, at mid-day,
in that dirty, disordered winter,
those intense horses were the blood
the rhythm, the inciting treasure of life.

I looked. I looked and was reborn:
for there, unknowing, was the fountain,
the dance of gold, heaven
and the fire that lives in beauty.

I have forgotten that dark Berlin winter.

I will not forget the light of the horses.”

~Pablo Neruda, “Horses”

Autumn in the Alpine Loop

Autumn in the Alpine Loop 

Autumn is the most magical season. The crisp air, the tangy scent of fallen leaves, the warm and bright colors that bring more life to the trees and forests than any other season… I can’t get enough of it. It is my favorite time of year and the best time to take photos!

We took our girls on a drive around the Alpine Loop, above Sundance and into American Fork Canyon. Although at first our oldest (who is seven) complained, she started to appreciate the splendor of the colors splashed across the mountains. The two-year-old just wanted treats, but she enjoyed the short hike we took on the rain-soaked paths near Mount Timpanogos.
