Here at the lower portion of Bells Canyon, the reds of maples and scrub oak and the yellows of aspen and cottonwood trees cover a varied geology. During the Ice Age, glaciers descended the full length of the canyon to touch the shores of ancient Lake Bonneville making it only one of two places in the Western US (the other is in California) where ice descended to water. The residual deposits sloughed off the sides of the glacier are still visible to the north of the reservoir, with a notch cut by the Wasatch Fault.
