This weekend we took our new camera into the Uinta Mountains near Park City to test it out. We had a fun day playing with different lenses and settings, finding different locations to photograph, hiking and discovering a place to build a snow cave for snow camping later this winter.
We started our hometown adventure at the Samak Smokehouse, where we bought our pass for the national forest, some famous beef jerky and homemade caramels.
Then we kept heading up Mirror Lake Highway until we came to the end of the road. The highway is closed at a certain spot during the winter and it turned out to be a perfect place to take some pictures.
Next we headed to a viewpoint overlooking the Provo River, a place that Sam called "artistic gold."
I decided we needed to practice using the tripod and the remote. New and improved selfies.
Our last stop was a hike where we discovered the perfect cozy spot in the forest to make a snow cave for winter camping as soon as we get enough snow.
