Enjoyed the Spectacular fall colors on my Alpine Loop- Cascade Springs ride

What a beautiful day for a ride. I still have a little fitness left over from my Lotoja training so I decided to get out and enjoy the SPECTACULAR fall colors with a 50 mile ride with 5800 feet of climbing. John and I met at the summit of Alpine Loop. He climbed from the Provo Canyon side and I climbed from the American Fork Canyon Side. We rode the 15 mile round trip out to Cascade Springs together.

View from the summit of the first of the quakies starting to turn at the base of Mt Timpanogos.

The red, pink and orange colors appear to be at their peak this weekend. Wow!

Action photo using my iphone. Not that easy to do while riding.


  1. We are glad you enjoy getting away and pedaling on skinny tires now and then. The scenery looks like a nice bonus - thanks for the pictures.

  2. Good to have you back in Utah enjoying the altitude air.
