Recently ran across this photo of Utah’s Mt. Timpanogos in the snow. You can see how majestic the mountain is dressed in white, and how its glory can bring awe and joy to people in the valley.
Photo found on Wikipedia, from January 2008.
Let me state right up front that the only reason I’m posting this is because of the cameo appearance of Mt. Timpanogos in this video.
The sun is setting in the west; Timpanogos is that biggest mountain to the east.
Never heard of this guy before, the pianist William Joseph; found it through a clip in the Deseret News in Salt Lake City.
I understand there’s a platform hiding beneath the water. When my grandfather, Leo Barrett Stewart, Sr., was a child, about ten miles south of where this film was shot, he said one could paddle a boat out to the middle of Utah Lake, and see the bottom, picking the trout one wished to fish for. That was before the invasive carp was introduced.
It would be wonderful to see Utah Lake restored to the point that you could see the platform holding the piano.

Spent the night on the north end of Mount Timpanogos at 10,000 feet, by myself, taking it all in.
