Utah Landscapes & Plants

2003 through 2005

Utah is a state with a diversity of habitats and plants consisting of mountain ranges, intervening valleys, and high desert and montane plataeus.   The north and west portions of the state contain very dry and harsh desert environments while the central and northeastern parts of the state contain high mountains.   The eastern side bordering Colorado and southern and central south contain the Colorado Plateau with dramaticly eroded river canyons, hence the name "Canyonlands".

I have spent portions of six summers between 1999 to 2005 in Utah, primarily in the Boulder/Escalante Grand Staircase National Monument area of the state.   The photographs on the following pages illustrate the varied and dramatic landscapes of this part of Utah, as well as the flora and landscapes of the Wasatch Range (Little Cottonwood Canyon/Brighton/Albion Basin areas), the Four Corners region (Valley of the Gods, Monument Valley), Boulder Mountain/Aquarius Plataeu, Moab area, Capitol Reef National Park, Bryce Canyon, Cedar Breaks, Henry Mountains, and the Escalante River and some of its tributaries.
