Sugarhouse Park

This post will be my favorite post so far. I'm so excited to show these pictures! This afternoon began as a rush to get to Salt Lake City to have a VHS transfered to DVD for Young Womens. I decided to go last minute and tried to hurry so I could get back in time to pick up Syndey and a couple of kids from school. Tyler and Dallin were coming with me since Tyler is off-track until January. I got about 2 miles away from home when I realized I FORGOT the VHS TAPE! I turned around and realized there was no way I was going to make it back from SLC in time to pick up Sydney. I decided to call the other mom in the carpool and have her pick the kids up after school and have Sydney stay with them until I got home. THEN, after picking up the tape and making the phone call, on a whim, I decided to grab the new camera just in case I had a photo opportunity. Boy am I glad I did!
After dropping off the video in South Salt Lake City, we started to head home. Tyler and I were looking for anything that might make a good photo as we were driving. Suddenly I looked to the sky and saw this beautiful cloud formation. We looked for a place to pull off of I-80 and exited at 1300 E (Utahns recognize this as a major road running along the east bench.) We made a right turn and I realized we were next to Sugarhouse Park and that we could get some great photos of the sky there.
Not only was the sky beautiful, but the park was gorgeous as well. It had been a couple years since I had been to that park and a good portion of that was in the dark because of the 4th of July fireworks (I highly recommend the fireworks at Sugarhouse Park). Tyler was begging to take a couple of pictures and I let him from inside the van. This is his first good photo of the sky!
He tried to get a photo of a bird in flight and I doctored up his photo to get this next image.

I can't remember if he or I took this next photo.

Tyler took this one of the Sky through our front windshield of the van!

This is one Tyler took of the Rockies- looking so dark, tall and majestic. The next four photos I took.

I love the aspen(?) in the photo above! The creek below was one of my favorite photos!
