After the bike buying adventure we decided to head up the mountains above Cedar City, I had been over a dirt road which at the far end is called Dry Lakes Road a couple of times before and thought the trees would be in full change, and they were! We started just outside Summit and headed up the hill.
As we reached the first summit we had great views out towards the west.
Janet found her usual high spot much to Biff's admiration.
Views to the north were equally magnificent, the highest grey area with the 'fringe'
just left of centre is Brian Head.
Once we were in the National Forest it wasn't long before we started to glimpse views across the valley to Cedar Breaks
Inside the trees the light was incredible.
Eventually a promontory revealed the full splendour of both the trees and the cliffs with Brian Head right in the centre of the picture.
I took a lot more photographs of course including some arty ones and some that will appear on my photography web site.
The drive finished up by taking 143 across Cedar Breaks and down into Cedar City but it wasn't as spectacular as the Dry Lakes road (FR 265).
