Ode to Snow

Emigration Canyon, 1984. Salt Lake County Planning and Development photograph collection.


This house up Emigration Canyon Road is located between Pioneer Gulch and Sheep Gulch.  The canyon and house were hit with multiple snowstorms in the winter of 1984, as this photograph shows.

Thank goodness this little girl was up to the job of digging it all out.

Source: This image was discovered recently while processing a large collection of photographs carefully gathered by Salt Lake County Planning and Development and sent to the Archives.  The collection contains images of residential and commercial buildings from the 1950s-2000s.
