Change of scenery gives me a blank canvas – great to get the creative juices flowing! A breath of fresh air when you live in the city (I did back then)  – big landscapes, wide horizons, fierce, almost uninhabitable
mountains, unforgiving  hot  temperatures. Unforgettable and addictive!

AT  HOME: we are dealing now with building permits for that forest floor hubby leveled (seen in post Major Markers) – so far so good:) I am back to finishing up(hopefully!)  that pastel from some time ago The Love Book.



Water is scarce here – not many big rivers  or lakes … a faint reflection of the sky





THE GOOD: Sure you might need a fence here in  Zion Nat Park …
waiting to go through the tunnel with only one lane,
so it’s the other side’s turn now.
Here they record your ( license plate?) car!





Also plenty heights and tight spaces on our walks and hikes:)
With these temps. over a 100 degrees F
ice cream and cool drinks are on these kinds of days definitely popular!




A mountain goat makes an appearance … Can’t I have a quiet day…
without a whole row of cars looking at me?

THE FUN: The weather changes every few hours (at least while we were there in June-July! We only planned this as a one time vacation. But when the next year two fires were burning close to Yosemite Nat. park, we went back to Utah’s Bryce Canon and Zion Nat. Park.

  1. Absolutely stunning! We went into Utah briefly to Arches just for an overnight and then on east of there into Colorado, so we didn’t see a lot, but all the scenery was really lovely, and I would love to go back! Love the mountain goat! How weird they are recording your car!


  2. Beautiful pictures. We loved RVing in Utah, especially Zion. I enjoyed your previous posts from this area and can well imagine that an artist would fall in love with the State’s natural beauty. (I hope this isn’t a repeat comment; my earlier one seemed to fly to cyberspace.)


  3. Who’d be a goat, Jesh? 🙂 Well, if it was the only way I could see the National Park…. just maybe 🙂
    Many thanks for the link- that’s brilliant! I wasn’t sure what you meant. Love having your company!


  4. That is a beautiful place – I’d love to visit some day. P.S. – the town of Monument is named after Monument Rock and Monument Creek, but I don’t know where the names came from.


  5. Every place has its attraction…. and for me, being Dutch, this photomeme is a wonderful opportunity to get to know different sceneries.
    Thank you for this weeks entry at ABC-W , looking forward to more 😉

    Have a nice day,

  6. Wonderful post. Loved that first scene, it was so pretty. Also the one from Zion park, stunning view. – I’ve been to Arches Natnl. Park and love it but maybe someday I’ll return and visit Zion.
