Farmington Canyon

About the location

Farmington Canyon is a beautiful shoot location with lots of variety in backgrounds, from pine and Aspen trees, to a lake, to grassy meadows, and one of the most beautiful views in the state on the top of the mountain looking down to the great salt lake.  The canyon road is a long and rough dirt road, and you can't go more than 25 MPH due to the blind curves and steep cliffs.  I would not even attempt this location without an SUV or truck.  Also, the canyon is closed from November through July due to snow.
