Home again

Well, I’m sorry I did not keep my promise to post here while we were on our trip. I forgot to put up links for myself and I could not log in to my admin to post. You might just guess I am not really computer literate.  But we are home again and I have just made sure that I have the links I need the next time we go tripping! And I have tons of photos, of course, which I will not post here. Well, I’ll post some but not the ‘tons’.

The start of our trip was rather white and cold. This was a morning in Nevada where we stayed in a state park. Nice place but the weather wasn’t the greatest! lol

This is a waterfall in Zion National Park. There was just too much to see to even take it all in in one visit. Everything is too BIG!

These things are called HooDoos. They are the hard parts of the sandstone that was left after the rest washed away. This is Red Canyon and my favorite part.

This guy is apparently quite used to tourists in Brice Canyon park, as he sat there and let us take his picture until he got bored with the process and flew off to spiral heavenward on an updraft above this colorful canyon.

While we had snow in the beginning, the desert was blooming beautifully by the time we headed home. I took a bunch of flower pictures but this cactus was among the showy-ist

Met a great lady in this shop in Hatch, Utah. An artist after my own heart! I bought a ‘trinket’ in her shop and we talked art. She’s learning to spin and is taking rug weaving lessons from an Indian gentleman who raises sheep nearby. The town of Hatch is on highway 89 if you are in that part of the country you should not miss a chance to stop and browse her shop!

This is Mount Tom, taken from an over-look as we headed home out of  Bishop, CA. We drove up to Sabrina, not at the top but waaay up there. This is the Sierra Nevada range. There are gobs more pictures but  I think this is enough. You ought to go visit the desert someday, if you can. It is beautiful country to see, but I am happy to live just where I do.
