Today I woke up and just marveled at the fog. It was the perfect density, i.e. thick enough that it was pretty and slightly creepy, but not thick enough that I was scared for my life. I decided hey, this would be great to get some cool foggy woods shots! So I got dressed and headed up the hill towards Mueller Park.
As I drove higher and higher up the hill, the fog started getting thicker and thicker and I was getting more excited. Then poof. Sunlight. I had driven above the fog line. Darn.
Somewhat disappointed I wouldn’t get any cool foggy woods shots I almost turned back towards home, then decided eh, I'm here why not go for a hike?
I decided to take the hike the opposite way as last time I was here for a few reasons. 1 Didn’t know if the 2nd trail would have been used enough for me to figure out where I need to go. 2. I wasn’t sure how far up I wanted to go.
After hiking around and going back into the fog I stopped at few places and took some good foggy pictures. I probably would have done a lot more, but I feel kind of weird pulling over and getting out with the camera… I mean, it’s Bountiful not Yellowstone the locals aren’t really accustomed to that behavior.
The Original Mill Stones… this is what they preserved of the mill.
After this the fog started making me nervous to be driving in, so I headed home and called it a day. It was kind of nice going out and hiking though, I don’t think I have ever hiked in the wintertime before.
Mueller Park in the Wintertime: 9 Squirrels out of 10. It is frequented enough that the snow is packed down enough to make it easy to hike, but the snow scares off enough people that it is not crowded.
