Description of Pictures: Brighton is one of the ski resorts in the Salt Lake City area. It has a number of beautiful lakes. I walked around one on a trail that was sometimes two feet deep in snow.
Historically, it is the site of the first statewide Pioneer Day Celebration, something Mormons do to celebrate Brigham Young's establishment of the city. According to the plaque, "The first statewide Pioneer Day Celebration was held in this basin July 23-24, 1857. Headed by Brigham Young, the company reaching here July 23 numbered 2,587 persons with 464 carriages and wagons, 1,028 horses and mules, and 332 oxen and cows. A program of addresses, six brass bands, singing, athletic events, drills by six companies of militia, and dancing was punctuated by salutes from a brass howitzer. US flags were flown from two highest peaks and two highest trees, the flag-tree in front of Brigham Young's campsite being 70 feet NW of here. At noon July 24, Judson Stoddard and AO Smoot, 20 days from the states with Elias Smith and DP Rockwell, arrived here with news of the advance of Johnston's army against the 'Mormons.' The company returned in orderly formation July 25th." The army mentioned was Joseph Johnston (later of Confederate Civil War fame) which the federal government was sending against the Mormons who were refusing to acknowledge federal control of their territory.

Bigger photos? To save server space, the full-sized versions of these images have either not been loaded to the server or have been removed from the server. (Only some pages are loaded with full-sized images and those usually get removed after three months.)
I still have them though. If you want me to email them to you, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
and I can email them to you, or, depending on the number of images, just repost the page again will the full-sized images.

2003 photos: Equipment this year: I decided my Epson digital camera wasn't quite enough for what I wanted. Since I already had Compact Flash chips for it, I had to find another camera which used CF chips. That brought me to buy the Fujifilm S602 Zoom in March 2003. A great digital camera, I used it exclusively for an entire year.
Trips this year: Three-week trip this year out west, mostly in Utah.
Number of photos taken this year: 68,000.
