Foothills in All Their Splendor
If you haven't been out for a hike, run, or bike in the Avenues foothills or along the east bench, stop what you are doing and go now.
May is by far the best month for lowland adventures in northern Utah as the hills green up, but snow lingers on the mountains. I nearly had to pinch myself yesterday when I was out for a ride on the Bonneville Shoreline Trail with a carpet of grass and wildflowers covering the lowlands and a coating of snow in the mountains (see above).
How quickly the hills turn brown (or if you prefer, "golden") depends on whether or not we can continue to get the occasional storm as we approach the dog days of summer. Let's hope the trough that will affect our weather later this week and weekend can deliver.
