Mt. Timpanogos in Utah's Uinta National Forest is perhaps the most popular hiking destination in the state. It's the second tallest peak in the Wasatch Mountain Range. This waterfall, near the base of the mountain, is supplied by snowfields beneath the 11,749 ft. (3582 m) peak.
By Mike O'brien UPDATED: 07:50 GMT, 17 January 2012 The cracks in the parched earth are clearly visible, but for a few short weeks - every few years - this remote section of desert is transformed into a magic carpet of purple. The wildflower Scorpion Weed takes over this corner of the Mojave Desert in southwestern Utah when the conditions are right.

After quitting his job, photographer and artist Kien Lam took a trip around the world. Over the course of a year, he visited 17 countries and took 6,237 photographs. Wanting to share his epic journey with others, Lam put his photos together to create a kind of time-lapse video that has enthralled the Web. In a little less than five minutes, viewers are treated to beautiful shots of the U.S., England, France, Portugal, Spain, Morocco, Egypt, Turkey, Jordan, Thailand, Indonesia, Japan, Argentina, Uruguay, Chile, Bolivia, and Peru. On Lam's official site , he explains that he didn't really have an itinerary in mind when he set out. I had a direction I wanted to head and a goal of following the sun to get as many warm days as possible. 2010 was a particularly cold year in San Francisco and I just wanted to wear shorts and flip-flops as many days as possible to make up for that.

The Great Salt Lake is one of the saltiest bodies of water in the world, saltier than the ocean, but not as salty as the Dead Sea. A swim in its waters provides surprising buoyancy, and stings the eyes a bit.
