One of my college friends is an artist who paints from the heart. She took a simple photo of mine and presto… it became a beautiful painting. You can find Sandy’s paintings at Sandy Donn on Etsy and she writes a beautiful blog filled with her paintings and her feelings about them. Sandy’s Blog I […]
Visited friends in Colorado last week and had a grand time. This girls trip was planned around being outdoors and all I can say is wow! The weather was perfect- not too hot and not to cold. Lots of walks and hikes taking in all nature could provide. It could not have been more glorious. […]
Last month I attended a Memorial Service for a friend’s mom in Alpine, Texas. While there we visited Marfa and Fort Davis also. Wow, this was the most gorgeous area with the most unbelievable mountain area. We were not able to view the Marfa lights because of a few evening storms, but we did manage […]
For as long as I can remember my grandmother had a stack of unused paintings stacked in the bedroom designated for the grandkids. The closet was a typical small closet for a house built in 20s and it was very stark and clean with a few toys on shelves to the left and on the […]
104 degrees today and I am sweltering! It is a good day to post a Canada photo from June where, not only was it cool, there was plenty of snow also. I just managed to download all of my photos so will be sharing some beautiful nature and awesome animal photos soon. Today is just […]
View of clouds over the Sandias outside of Albuquerque, NM. Beautiful. Thanks to my good friend for sharing… I never tire of her majestic mountain scenes.
Here are a few additional Colorado photos I wanted to share from my girl’s trip to Colorado Springs. These views were all taken in Garden of the Gods. Pikes Peak is in the background of all three. The last photo was taken on a mountain drive to the divide which was an amazing drive and scenery.
Have you ever visited Garden of the Gods outside of Colorado Springs? Visited Colorado Springs a couple of weeks ago with a friend. We had a fabulous time in Colorado. The weather was beautiful and nice and we were able to visit all the places I love. One of my favorites is the Garden of […]
Many beautiful memories in Montana this summer. Much time to reflect and take in the many gorgeous sights that Montana has to offer. Loved this view leaving Glacier National Park one evening around 9pm. My camera batteries were totally out at this point so had to use my phone. My phone came through for me with a […]
I took this at National Glacier Park -Summer 2010
Montana in May is spectacular! Snow covered mountains Rainy Days Pastures turning green in a blink of an eye Snow melted streams and rivers raging and bulging Wildflowers Garden’s beginning their summer bounty Bears out of hibernation Mountain Lions lurking Deer grazing Birds building nests Warm sun teasing with a taste of summer Montana in May is […]
Son #1 and family traveled to the Davis Mountains in November. They had a wonderful adventure and son #1 even got in a deer hunt which made him ever so happy. I have never been to this area, but adding it to my travel list. Love the “can see for miles” and love the look […]
This taken in June when NW Montana had a little dusting of snow. I love it when it snows in the summer! Thanks to R. for the photo. As always click on photo to enlarge.
Went into Glacier National Park last week and it is totally beautiful this summer. Usually in July the snow is sparse, but this July there have been many beautiful snow scenes to enjoy. It is warming up fast so I am sure there is a lot of melting going on this week. Will look forward to […]
