A Golden September walk along Parley's Creek

The County has just completed a stretch of multi-use trail that goes down into and comes up out of Parley's Creek Corridor. As you will see, it was a golden September day. I walk in the foothills in all four seasons, but fall is my favorite. Cool crisp mornings, warm, quiet afternoons, and abundant amber sunshine.

The trail drops in to the hollow and follows the creek for awhile












 Mount Olympus presides over it all

This structure was finished in about 1891 by pioneer era workers. It carried water from Parley's Creek in canals to the valley below, and was a major source of irrigation water. This little section in the hollow is the only part of the canal that remains.

Oh, and by the way, my tomatoes have finally come in. They were worth the wait!
