ON UTAH’S ROADS

Amazing skies and mountains – I have grown to love our yearly Yosemite Nat. Park visits. Yet, very different stunning skies and Impressive (ABC Wed.) red and white mountains – that is Utah for me.

  1. Good morning Jesh, Sorry I am late visiting you this week. Life sometimes just takes over. Thank you for commenting and joining Blue Monday every week.
    We have been in Bryce Canyon and various parks in the area. It was a great trip as we love Utah for so many reasons. We skied in Park City dozens of times. Loved being there. Your photos are always a treat to see. Your Seasons posts are always so interesting.
    Have a great weekend.
    Hugs,
    Jeanne

    I always find something quite tranquil about seeing the sky reflected in water. I think it was worth the extra red to get that photo 🙂
    Also, those yellow flowers contrasted with the dry surroundings – that one’s probably my favourite here

  10. Loved the Utah mountains and that lacy door!

    House hunting is at a stand still. Nothing has come on the market we like well enough to go see. We’ll wait for the right house. 🙂

    Hope you have a great week-end!

  24. I love it when cows take over the road. A couple years ago, the Husband and I pulled over to watch a rancher stop and guide back a runaway cow. He, the rancher, drove a golfcart. He told us that cow loved a chase.
    I can imagine that burnt log in our front yard as a home to a whole lot of succulents. 🙂

    Beautiful images! Utah looks like a lovely place. Cows are quite common on the road around here too. Unfortunately, they seem to be great escape artists. Thanks so much for joining me in Friday’s Hunt. Hope you have a great week!
