Devil's Kitchen in the Morning

Devil's Kitchen in morning light.

The Devil's Kitchen on the Nebo Loop Scenic Byway (near Nephi, Utah), is a great geological site.  These conglomerate rock formations stand out in their deep red color against the green trees and shrubs.  It was interesting to visit in the early morning hours.  Besides the ubiquitous cows on the highway, we saw several deer.  Watching the light spread over the small canyon was a visual treat.

Early morning at Devil's Kitchen.

The morning sun gave Devil's Kitchen an ethereal quality.  It seemed almost misty, although it was only the rays of sunlight.

Mt. Nebo in the distance.

The morning sun lit up the eastern slope of Mt. Nebo.  From an overlook, we could see the ridges in front of Mt. Nebo contain the same red conglomerate rock that forms the Devil's Kitchen.

I loved the way the sunlight highlighted the twists and turns of this wonderful old tree.  Devil's Kitchen is a great place to stop if you get the chance.  It is beautiful at any time of day!
