SCRUB OAK DETAIL
Not far from downtown Salt Lake City, UT in a quiet mountain cove sits Neff’s Canyon. A short hike up the canyon offers mountain and valley views and is especially beautiful after a winter storm.
As I made my way back down the mountain, the light was soft and I began to notice the interwoven patterns of the bare scrub oak branches on both sides of the trail and the contrast created by the freshly fallen snow.
The scene caused me to slow down and to take a more focused view of the scene around me; To appreciate the simple beauty that is so easily overlooked or taken for granted.
