With many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] scottrell001 who sent me the individual snaps, I share a few panoramæ showing views from his balcony. I only cheated on a few corners to fill in parallax gaps - otherwise, what you see is what he saw.

















Bonus:


Interesting shot of houses far away, reflecting the light of the sun

Oi! Oi! Oi!

Left too late to take a decent walk, but ended up doing 4.5 miles with a respectable aerobic workout, huffing up into the foothills. On the way up I passed a street designation in the concrete (common up in the Avenues of Salt Lake) that someone had decided to decorate with Pyracantha berries - I thought it was charming:



My son called me when I was overlooking the valley, and asked if I wanted to go do dinner and a movie, so I snapped a few quick pix:


The Great Salt Lake from the northern foothills


The Salt Lake City Center


Foothills with Sunflowers

It was kind of a hazy day so the shots aren't the best, plus all I had with me was my phone-cam, but they give a flavor of what I saw this afternoon.

My some drove up into the avenues to pick me up, and we went to dinner at a Thai restaurant - I gave this one a "B-" - and then went and saw "9", which I had seen last week, but enjoyed it again because he hadn't seen it. His assessment was similar to mine - he liked the effects, but came away feeling unsatisfied with the story as a whole. However, we saw some previews for some awesome-looking films that are on the must-see list.

While on my bushwhacking trek I stopped to take a stereograph of a particularly beautiful scene - did this without a tripod so the parallax was my best guess, but it turned out pretty well.

(If you have GoogleEarth, you can use the embedded coordinates to get an idea of the terrain I traversed.)

Instead of walking from home, today I drove up the canyon to the end of the road (40°49'31.58"N, 111°47'26.82"W) and purposed to walk as far into the canyon as I was able.

Very tired, but satisfied with where I went and what I saw.
