Red/Snapshot

The vibrant colors of fall were all around us until this past weekend when we had a severe weather alert.  While we didn’t receive any snow, we did have high winds that pretty much disrobed the trees of their glorious colors.  😦  I’m afraid the long  winter months are just around the corner.  I always look forward to winter and snow, I do really enjoy the cool, crisp mornings and warm afternoons of autumn.  The colors are a bonus!

Especially prayerful for those who lost love ones in the fire in Prescott, AZ and praying all will stay safe fighting fires this season.  Particularly my brother Beau.

Spring Days…

I am loving the longer, warmer days we’ve been having lately.  Not too hot or too cool.  Perfect spring weather.

The flowering trees, tulips, grape hyacinth and violas are in full bloom too…

Frozen Weeping Wall…

The redness of the rock at Zion National Park still amazes me.  I find it absolutely stunning.

At Zion  we visited the Weeping Wall.  It was a nice little walk up to where the side of the mountain drips water and gives it the appearance that is crying.

We did have to watch our step though, as it was very slippery with ice.

It gave me a bit of vertigo!

The top was fenced off as it was very unstable and slippery.
