De La Weekend: SLC Jaunt

I was unable to do any winter sports last winter because of ankle surgery. As a result, I’m attempting to double up this season. We got a jump start on the MLK holiday weekend by heading out to SLC. Since I have family out there it was an easy and dual purpose trip. I had been monitoring the snow situation via the Wasatch snow report, and via my family’s instagram feeds.

We had two excellent powder days last Thurs and Fri, then sneaked in some snowshoeing over Guardsman’s Pass on Sunday. I wish that I would have been a little more vigilant about lugging the camera around. But honestly, Thurs and Fri were so snowy that it would have been a total pain to break it out. I did manage to bring it along snowshoeing though. While the valley was totally socked in with clouds and lake effect flurries, up on Guardsman’s it was bluebird skies and no wind. Dreamy, actually. I included a few shots from below and above the cloud line, on our way up the canyon.

A timer shot which I will get in trouble for publishing. But I like it:

Tday part I went to a school with no D1 football team. So I have co-opted her as a Utah FB fan. Her first game in Rice stadium it snowed the whole game and was 26 degrees. She didn’t ask to leave once. I love the snap above of her pre-gaming with my old man. PS, all of the snaps in this post are de la iPhone. at Brighton (below)
