Walter’s Wiggles

Daisy Blur-3274

Our May trip to the Utah National Parks was filled with upward motion. This is a photo of the switchback “Walter’s Wiggles” on the way up to Angels Landing in Zion. Those little spots of color between the trees are people near the top of the switchback.

Props to these random strangers for posing for my photo. 🙂

I think I exceeded 20,000 steps on each day of this trip!

Serene

Tetons-3478.jpg

Now she walks in quiet solitude the forest and the streams
Seeking grace in every step she takes
Her sight has turned inside herself to try and understand
The serenity of a clear blue mountain lake.

(Technically, a beaver pond, but you get the picture. Lyrics from my soul song, Colorado Rocky Mountain High, by John Denver.)

Bliss

Ah, bliss. A word that encompasses so many areas of my life. Pure enjoyment. Passion. For Photography 101 we were asked to represent out idea of bliss in a photo. I could not settle on just one.

My family is my bliss.
