This months photograph features one of our favorite photography subjects, Mount Timpanogos – sometimes informally referred to as Timp. It is the second highest mountain in Utah’s Wasatch Range with an elevation of 11,752 ft. The mountain towers about 7,000 feet over Utah Valley and the exposed portion of the mountain is made up entirely of limestone and dolomite from the Pennsylvanian period, and is about 300 million years old. The word Timpanogos comes from the Timpanogots tribe who lived in the surrounding valleys from AD 1400. The name translates as “rock” (tumpi-), and “water mouth” or “canyon” (panogos).
