For those not familiar with northern Utah, this is the northern side of this beautiful mountain, or what I call the 'backside'. Usually my photos are of the south side which I think shows off its beauty better. This backside view is reached by a beautiful winding road called the Alpine Loop. It starts about 10 minutes from my home, and has an elevation of around 8000 ft, (Mt. Timpanogos itself is around 11,800 ft in elevation). On the other side of the summit is Robert Redford's Sundance Ski Resort, and the Loop eventually ends in Provo Canyon. Such a beautiful drive!
