Utah is 2nd driest state in the Union. Moved here in 2006 and found nearby terrain dry, barren, rocky, windy, sagebrush infested desert. Quite a contrast to Oregon’s Willamette Valley where I lived most of life. Man, a desert tortoise could dry up and blow away in this state. Live not far from Oquirrh Mountains so decided early on to explore. Hiked most of a day around foothills and found more of the parched same. Cactus everywhere. Then found a canyon to explore and within literally minutes from pokey ol’ cactus I was finding maples then aspens and then the surprise of all…dense forest of fir trees. Big fir trees too. Wow. I felt right at home again. What a hike. What a surprise. Guess where I can go now when feeling a bit homesick?
