Awesome rocks ...

 As we rounded the corner, this was our first view

Sunday I spend some time looking back through our photos from Utah, Nevada and Arizona. I have so many that I have not posted yet. I think I need to find a way to share them in bulk, at least the ones I have not shared yet. I plan to look into that.  

 About at the ½ way point ... it’s immense

Of all the places we visited, I think this was my favorite view. Kolob Canyons is just stunning. It’s right off of I-15, just a few minutes north of St George, Utah. If your ever in the area I recommend you stop and visit. You have to pay for a National Park Pass, but it’s good for a week. 

Of course, next week, I will be looking at photos, and likely conclude that some other location is my favorite. That is the nature photographers dilemma .. candy in a candy store. 

 View from the scenic overlook at the peak of the drive ... feeling some OMG here.

I took this photo in southern Utah. I love this view. No, its not a volcano. 😬

Teresa and I are spending Valentine’s Day at Hocking Hills, and my connnection to the internet is really bad. I tried to share a photo from our location, but the connection is just too bad to upload a large photo. I think I will survive. New photos from here on Friday. Have a great day!

Fort Zion

Teresa took this photo not to long after we left Zion National Park. I loved the colors they used, and found the ‘undertaker’ builiding to be a bit odd. Clearly, they didn’t want anyone walking around.

Gone fishing ... in the mountains

On the first day in Utah of this past trip, we stopped to photograph the sunrise. The temperature was in the lower 40s. We had spent the night in St George, and we off on our journey. The morning was crisp and we were excited for the sun to rise over the mountains. When it did, I captured this photo of these two fishing.  

Sometimes the simple things bring the most calm. I can image fishing here. It looks so relaxing and peaceful.

I have never been good at taking time to relax. I have done more of that in the last month than in years (except for our vacation to Hawaii two years ago). I have to say, I am feeling so much better, and stress free.  Take a little time to let the stress go ... perhaps go fishing in the mountains.

On frozen pond

Even a frozen pond makes a landscape photo look better. It was cold the morning I took this photo. At the time we took this trip, Utah was way under the normal for snowfall. You can see some snow in the mountains, but they should have much more. This is not good for the coming spring.

Not far from this spot we saw a group ice fishing. I guess some people love the cold weather. I’m not one of them. Give me heat. (And I guess it was bigger than a pond👍😳)
