Thompson Ledge, Boulder, Utah
For a change of pace, I’m going to feature for a while some scenic landscape photos from our trip to southern Utah in the spring of 2013. We spent one memorable morning exploring a portion of the remote Burr Trail. The road extends over sixty miles from Boulder to Bullfrog, but we limited ourselves to about a 20-mile portion, starting at Boulder, and then we double-backed for a late lunch of delicious burgers at the Burr Trail Grill.
There was virtually no traffic along the Burr Trail, just the way we like it for spur-of-the-moment photography. We stopped frequently to admire the rustic landscape, starting with a hill called Thompson Ledge. The rocky formation is a compressed sand dune, created millions of years ago. It was just a taste – a small nibble – of what sights lay ahead of us.
