Local resident Deonn Stott, recently completed a post on her blog that featured a quilt of the Heber Valley. This beautiful work of art reminds us that there are many ways to express our love for the valley. Some us pen and paper, others paint brushes and eisels, and others take wonderful photos. Stott's work goes to show you that whatever your form of expression it is the heart and effort that goes into it that makes it special.
Here are some of exerts from her blog orginally published at QuiltScapesQS.com
"Heber Valley is a beautiful mountain valley, nestled on the east side of the Wasatch range of the Rocky Mountains, about an hour from Salt Lake City, Utah, USA. This is the view that greets me every time I come home."
Surrounded by mountains, forests, lakes and a river that runs through it, the Heber Valley is ideal for outdoor activities such as boating, fishing, biking, hiking, golfing, picnicking, off-roading and horseback riding to name a few."
"Predominant over the valley is a picturesque mountain, Mt. Timpanogos. If you look closely, you can see the silhouette of a sleeping Indian Maiden, with her hair cascading down as depicted in this pin from the Olympics."
"Small-town community activities abound including an Outdoor Theatre, County Fair, world-class rodeo, a Farmer’s Market with weekly summer concerts, a Cowboy Poetry Festival and “Swiss Days” in the Fall. Enjoy a hot air balloon ride..."
