Week 2: Evidence of Hydrological System

Mount Timpanogos stands out clearly from almost anywhere in Utah County. Ice-Age glaciers carved many of its peaks.

Battlecreek Falls is one of my kids' favorite places to play.

It seems fairly innocuous, but Battlecreek has carved out an impressive canyon over millions of years.

Tibble Fork Reservoir, in American Fork Canyon, holds snowmelt for the use of locals, instead of all of the water going "downstream."

Rain in the mountains forms streams, creeks, and rivers.

Bridal Veil Falls in Provo Canyon demonstrates how water from rain and snowmelt finds the path of least resistance as it travels. You can also see the beginnings of erosion along its path.
