We're hard at work finally, putting the new site look up, and making sure all the content is fresh and newly updated. Please bear with us over the next week or two if you find something missing or a broken link or two. We are working hard to get caught up so if something doesn't work right today, please check back tomorrow!
If you're looking around for a few of the sections we had before, I'm sorry to say that some of them are just plain gone. I decided it was time to narrow the focus of the site a bit to make sure we can really do a good job of covering the things we kept around. We were getting a little thin before, trying to offer something for everyone. We've got a new sitemap here though, so you can see all the sections.
Deer Creek Reservoir sits at the south west end of the Heber valley, right at the top of Provo Canyon, just a shade under 50 miles from Salt Lake City. This lake is fairly popular with the sailing and wind surfing crowd, as there is fairly consistent winds there. The reservoir is for the most part long and narrow, but hosts a good selection of fish. The town of Heber, Utah is the closest provisioning point if you're looking for groceries and such.
The Heber Valley is very scenic, with the backside of Mount Timpanogas providing an awe-inspiring backdrop. The Heber Creeper is an old steam train that is still in service, pulling a short collection of passenger cars up and down a portion of the Provo Canyon. As the train goes between Heber and the canyon, it skirts the northern end of the reservoir, making for an exciting spectacle.
