Mountain Monday Sunset

I just want you to know that I will stop at nothing to get you the best mountain pictures my little brain can come up with. That includes stomping around in the snow, looking for the perfect picture. While I doubt any of these are perfect, they are beautiful and amazing. Enjoy! (the small version of these pictures just doesn't do them justice, if you see any you like, you need to click on it and you will be treated to the larger version)












I was told by the park rangers that these are Blue Heron tracks. I just thought they were cool. I also got to see a juvenile Bald Eagle hanging out in a dead tree. He was way too far away for me to get a picture though, sorry!






















The sunset was beautiful but short. I love it when Utah dresses up to show off for my bloggy friends!

There was a glorious full moon the other night!



Once more I must thank you for letting me see Utah through fresh eyes. Honestly, you get used to how beautiful and majestic things are here, because you see it everyday. But when I see it through your eyes, it is all fresh, new and intensely beautiful. Hope you like them as much as I did.

These are lovely, Jo. It almost makes me appreciate the snow.

Lana said...

What great pics! Thanks!
I know what you mean about appreciating your area. I grew up in BC, and though I thought the mountains were pretty, I never appreciated them. I moved to Alberta and Manitoba (the FLAT prairies) for 2 years. When I moved back to BC I couldn't get over how I never realy looked at the mountians before. 8 years later, and I'm still in awe of the beauty here. ☺

Oh my goodness, Jo, these are beautiful pictures. I had no idea that Utah was this picturesque. (Naive, I know.) Thank you for sharing a little bit of all things gorgeous in your backyard.
