Wasatch National Forest, located in the east of Salt Lake City, Utah, enters Big Cottonwood Canyon along Highway 190 from Salt Lake City. There are many hiking routes along the way. There are obvious signs at the entrance, and there are lower parking lots. There are two ski resorts at the end of the canyon, Brighton Solitude, which takes only twenty minutes to drive, is a favorite place for local residents, not too many people. This Canyon can go skiing in winter. With children, it's easy to find a place to play with a ski and a car inner tube. It's free. Summer is a good place for people to hike. There are many hilltop lakes. I like Lake Blanche figure 1, Lake Mary figure 4.5, Silver Lake figure 2.3, dog Lake figure 6.13 and so on. There are countless wild flowers in spring and many animals in summer. It's worth seeing.
I absolutely loved the drive through the hills, it was breathtaking and the photos absolutely cannot do justice to the panoramic views! The only annoying thing were the drivers that were tailing so dangerously close, because they didn''t think a speed limit applied to them apparently.
Big Sanye Yang Canyon is a good place for hiking. The natural greening here is very good, and many people come here to ski.
As its name implies, the trefoil poplar is a rare tree species in the canyon, and the natural skiing ground is also unique.
