My regular readers will know that I fell in love with Utah a couple of years ago on a road trip with my husband.
Everything about it amazed me...the breadth of it...the luminous air...the landscape that seemed to change with every bend in the road.
It has called me many times to return, but I've not found the chance. Because I woke up this morning imagining the hot sun above me and red soil beneath my feet, I thought a few favourite pictures would be perfect for Skywatch Friday
Yes, I know...another one of my unwise choices, treating a running arroyo as just another photo op!
Bryce Canyon defies description with its mystical hoodoos and cliffs that graze the clouds.
Of all the sights, it was Monument Valley that simply took my breath away. I considered it a great stoke of luck that we ran straight into a raging storm.
Every turn of the road revealed new treasures and changing skies.
We encountered this lovely lake as we took a quick detour into Wyoming, just because we could.
We stopped to get a few shots of this abandoned ranch along the way. Unfortunately, we also got busted for trespassing, but that's another story!
How could one not fall in love with a place as magical and varied as this as this?
I'm linking up today with Skywatch Friday. If you get a chance, stop by to see other skies from around the world...
And while only a few of these shots qualify, I'm also linking up to Weekend Reflections because I know James will like the pictures...
