Today’s Ride to Church (=Diamond Fork Hot Springs) comes to Doves & Serpents from Chris, who writes:
I currently live in Orem, Utah. Every Sunday for “church” I travel either up the mountain or out into the desert. It is a religion for me. While I absolutely dislike the fact I have been stuck in Utah for twenty years, I simply can’t get enough of the beautiful mountains that are so close by. I do landscape photography and I find myself both invigorated and relaxed to be out in the middle of nature, soaking in the quiet scenery and capturing its beauty with my camera.
Today’s jaunt took me up Spanish Fork canyon to Diamond Fork Hot Springs. This is a two and half mile hike and the trail hugs the creek all the way up to the hot springs. The trail is canopied with trees, and the sounds of the rushing creek with its many falls is heavenly. It is Fall and the colors are turning, especially the maples. The leaves are only just starting to fall and they are beginning to carpet the ground on the trail.
