Today, Fisher Towers, Utah

Fischer Towers Utah

Fisher Towers, Utah. Am experimenting with my image zoomer compressor, unfortunately it messes this photo up a bit but if you click on the image it'll display a higher quality version, perhaps enlarged if your screen has the room. Yesterday was chilly but dry and Lisa got in a nice 40 mile road bike ride, but rain and snow beat the WildSnow trailhead approach vehicle into the mud, and we headed back home where the snow is thick enough to ski. On the way back, we were loving the clouded cliffs of the redrock country, and pulled over for this roadside grab shot. Click to enlarge.

    That’s a sweet spot! I camped across the highway from Fisher Towers with my two little girls last week. We saw plenty of rain, some snow and always the clouds pouring off the cliffs or obscuring the towers. Moab can be cold and wet this time of year, but it doesn’t get any more beautiful. Nice photo.

    Hi Lou,

    Greetings from Moab. I dropped you a line last spring. The snow is thick enough to ski around here. You just have to get up above 10,000 feet!.

    Hi Eric, some day, we’ll ski the La Sal. Probably not this spring though…
