Seemingly keeping with the Utah approach of naming everything the same (Utah Lake, Utah Valley, Utah County), Provo Canyon is just east of the city of Provo, with the Provo River running through it.
The 28 mile drive through the Wasatch Mountains east of Provo takes you through Provo Canyon.
Not far into the canyon is Bridal Veil Falls, which cascades over 600 feet down the mountain in 2 drops.
The river is crossed by numerous bridges serving the hiking/biking path, but fortunately this was not the one we had to use.
The fall colors had begun on this late September day.
U.S. Highway 189 makes it’s way up the canyon, including this cool little double tunnel.
At the east end of the canyon in Deep Creek Reservoir.
We chose to take the Alpine Loop road up the mountain past Sundance Ski Resort. Overall a nice scenic drive for a couple of hours.
