gorgeous trip up to the canyon viewpoint today. a windy and sunny day. we took five puppies with us who kept busy hunting lemmings. the last time i was up on the plateau a few weeks ago the landscape had been blue and green. today it was full of reds and yellows. autumn is here in alta. we crossed several streams and found a cushy ledge of moss to rest on while we ate candy and absorbed the view. five hours after leaving, i came back to the house with hands stained purple from blueberries and a stiff back.
