Former Moorpark Resident–Author Tom Baldwin: A Pictorial of the Utah hillsides

By Tom Baldwn

I like to go up Cedar Mountain which is east of our home. In the space of four or five miles horizontally, you rise about a mile vertically to over ten thousand feet. It is mid July down where I live, hot and windy. Up there the air is cool and fresh and the vistas just go on forever.

On top of Cedar Mountain the last of the snow has been gone for only a month to six weeks and so its spring up there. Flowers are in bloom. On two recent trips up there I took my camera to photograph the wild flowers. Here is a sample of the pictures I took and sorry, but I do not know the names of the flowers, just that they are pretty.

None of the pictures have been enhanced in any way. No colors have been changed like so much of the stuff you find on the internet. I like things the way God made them. A few I cropped, but that is all.
