CHARACTERISTICS of UTAH

 

From one of our trips to Bryce and Red Canon, and Zion Nat. park, while staying close to St. George -so the road views are in between those places.

Utah – I love the contrasts – raw nature at its best. Immensely huge sky views which change every five minutes. Walls of hot red interspersed with white rock.  Extremely hot temperatures during the day in summer (101 – 108 degr. F)

Could not believe our eyes -this is a Trabant -a car, that “everyone” had in former Eastern Germany (except the high executives of the Communistic party and government). Still remember being sore from a ride because of the incredibly bad shocks in this car had! Masha reminded me that it takes about 20 years (really!)before your car is ready -YELP!

  1. Bryce, and Zion are my favorite parks in Utah! I’ve done horse back riding and river rafting in Zion, both are amazing.
    The red dirt…is really, really hard to get out of white socks and shorts!
    Your macro of the Dandelion in seed is wonderful!

    When He-Man and I were dating we camped in Zion. It was our first trip together. I taught him how to camp. He was just a “city” guy until he met me. He says it was that trip that he made up his mind that I really was the right girl. His thinking was if I could live in a tent for days, with little food, and little to no make-up…I had lipstick at all times, could cook, fish, and teach him how to fish and camp then I passed all the “tests” on his lists. There were a couple of other things on his list but those were related to city life, and life in general.

    35 yrs later I wonder what he’d say today? 🙂 We haven’t camped together in eons. I have backpacked and camped, but he hasn’t gone with me.

    I like your door choice for this week. It’s different!! Not all doors are to buildings or homes.

    1. What? Plan a camping trip for both of you for your next significant day/event! Even if you are some adjustments … You’ll be glad you did it. We now do urban camping (meaning a cabin), but the rest is still the same:)

      1. Urban camping works for me and him! Unfortunately, that’s not where the image is that I want to make. He’s not hiking into the wilderness with me…which has made me sad more than once. Backpacking for the shot isn’t his thing…not even for me.

  2. Hello, Bryce Canyon is one of my favorite parks. I loved hiking there! Pretty horse and lovely photos. Happy Thursday, enjoy your day and the weekend ahead!

  3. Great photos from a State, about I only read (in example in ” The Lonesome Polygamist” by Brady Udall)
    Hehe, a Trabant, stranded in Utah!
    We had not all Trabants, many people never had a car and had it not needed – our public traffic was very good and cheap (in contrast to today, as having a car is the onliest way to come from one village to another – ). To buy a car was very difficult and we have waited 20 years on it. When a child was born, the parents often just filled the application form for buying a Trabant and when the child was adult, they finally could buy the Trabant….
    My parents never had a car and I by muself the same (until today, but with another reasons)

  4. Gorgeous canyon. That car does not look like it affords caddy comfort, lol. 108, yikes, how does it stay such a lush green? Have never been, thank you for taking me there.

  5. You always pick your photos so well to go with your writing/travels. The color of those canyon walls is amazing.
    Wow those fields were pretty flooded, such a good capture of them as it looks as if you took this while moving.

  6. Beautiful pics, I spent most of my grade school years in Price, Utah and I loved the contrast between the desert and the mountains.

  7. I love Utah too!! The landscape is spectacular. And yes I do believe that must be Bryce. Looks like Bryce. I was overwhelmed by nature’s beauty there. Thank you for linking up the Trabant to OBW, haha, great shot! xx Wen

  8. What beautiful scenery! I love those red cliffs. I’m starting to wish I had a nice irrigation system as dry as we are this summer. Thanks so much for joining in. Have a great week!
