For as dry and desert-y Utah is, it does have its watery places. I love spending time in these places as water is a great contributor to the dynamics of light, shadow and reflection...something that deeply interests me as a landscape and garden designer.
This past Saturday I was traveling home from Northern Utah and decided to take a detour - as one always should on a Saturday (or any day). I followed a gravel road, which turned into a dirt road, after which I ended up on a narrow dike with Willard Bay stretched out in front of me. It was mesmerizing, the water was so flat and still. It really did feel like I was inside a big beautiful marble, watching it change and evolve as the sun sunk lower into the horizon line.
