This well-signed Byway is a winding drive between cities of Payson and Nephi. The road climbs 9,000 feet and crosses the Uinta National Forest providing stunning views of Utah Valley, the surrounding Wasatch, and dramatic wrap-around vistas of 11,877-foot Mt. Nebo, the highest peak in the rugged and beautiful Wasatch Range.
True to its name, Rock Canyon is a geological dream. Located west of Provo in the Wasatch Mountains, Rock Canyon is known for scenic hiking and rock climbing. There is a campground accessible from Squaw Peak Road off of Hwy 189 in Provo.
Measuring at 11,750 feet, Mount Timpanogos reigns the Wasatch Range and over Utah Valley. Drive north on I-15 from almost any point in Utah Valley and your gaze will inevitably meet the stunning Mt. Timpanogos skyline. There is a local lore associated with this mountain. Pause to appreciate its particular grandeur, but look closely, and soon you will discover the form of a maiden Utahna, who leapt to her death from the very highest peak.
Simply put, geocaching is treasure hunting for the 21st century. Armed with a GPS receiver, a set of coordinates that tell you the location of a cache, and a healthy sense of adventure, players go out and look for caches of goodies hidden by other geocachers. If one of the goodies in the cache strikes your fancy, you can take it–provided you leave another goodie in its place. In addition to the goodies, caches nearly always contain a log book of some sort so that you can record your thoughts and scribble a note for future cache visitors.
There’s nothing quite like seeing the copper mine for the first time. Our Visitors Center hosts approximately 160,000 guests per year from all over the world who come to experience our three-quarters of a mile deep canyon, the largest man-made excavation on earth. Our mine has produced more copper than any other mine in history and still contains enough copper to last through the next century. At 150,000 tons of copper ore per day, that’s a lot of copper! Come learn more about this impressive feat of engineering when you visit the mine for yourself. learn more at www.kennecott.com
