American Fork Canyon

We went down to American Fork Canyon over the past weekend with some good friends of ours, the Olsons. I hoped the colors would still be pretty and there was a little waterfall i had seen while dirt biking with Joe and Dacia that i wanted to explore. Plus, Jen wanted some fall family pictures. When Sara and Aaron arrived at our place i decided it would be a good idea to put together a quick BBQ lunch. So we brought our little portable grill and some burgers. Too bad we forgot the matches! But after driving around for a few minutes at the canyon we found a kind soul who was willing to part with some matches and a part of his striker cut from the box. i wasn't disappointed either; the colors were still rather spectacular and the waterfall was pretty neat too.

oh and by the way...karen and dad DO want to come. they wanted to do a hike with their friend anyway...so this knocks two birds with one stone. so they do want to come...i'm not sure if they'll do the photo part since they'll be all sweaty and granola looking...but they are coming either way. :)
what time do you want people to meet you up there?

Wow! Those look awesome. Makes me excited for the family pics you're going to take of us in November. Love the "trendy" hat on Anya, Jen! Those are seriously some great pics.

Alan--THOSE LOOK AMAZING! I keep thinking that your pictures can't get much better that already amazing, but you prove me wrong with every new shoot. These look soooo good. I love the waterfall shots and the pictures of Jen and Aaron are so cute. I love the softening effect you used on them. I also love the way you did some of them-with the dark edges and kind of glow in the middle. They are beautiful. When I get home, I will tell you which ones I like best and then you can send me the original files so I can get some printed and hung in my house. Actually you guys still owe me 200 photo prints, so maybe I could exchange those for enlargements and some other regular ones instead...let me know. These are simply inspiring! Teach me, teach me!

Those photos are beautiful with the fall colors. I especially love the one of Jen and Aaron's faces together. I haven't been to this blog for awhile. It is fun to see all your shots.
