Photo Wednesday: Top of the world to the valley floor

One day in Moab, we were on top of the world in the morning.

We were on the valley floor below the cliff for sunset. In the desert, sunset is a magical hour that paints the rock cliffs in mystical purple and gold hues.



  1. Beautiful photos. We sleep too late to enjoy the morning colors on the sandstone. The photo of K against the landscape is wonderful. Use that one for a calendar photo.

    Which brings up a point, when are you doing your 2012 calendar? You have the photos for it!

  2. Hi Y'all,

    Magic is an understatement but I can't think of a better word either.

    Y'all come back now,

  3. Nothing beats a desert sunset. Except a full moon...and maybe a sunrise...

  4. We passed each other several times this trip. Wish I had known! We could have shot a sunrise or sunset together!

    Love those photos of Castle Valley. The photo of K with the Titan is out of this world!

  5. Magic...unaccountably enchanting; possess mysterious powers...yes...your world is marvelous!

  6. Everytime I visit your blog, I'm really amazed on your place, that's the one of the Greatest creatures of God! ^_^

  7. Even more fantastic photos! I knew you'd have a ton of them. That's a place I've wanted to visit for a long time, and now I'm practically drooling!

    Don't worry about keeping up or making the rounds! Just do what you want when you can. I'm having a hard time myself right now. For about two hours when I get home, I'm busy entertaining the puppy until hubby gets home to entertain the little guy. I realized that I don't want to miss taking time to enjoy him while he's a cute little fuzzball, either! He's already growing like crazy! And sadly, I got the puppy who is not deterred by Bitter Apple, but instead thinks it tastes great!

  8. We just caught up with your last couple of posts. We're keeping our paws crossed for the best possible outcome for your medical issues. Mama has survived 2 bouts with cancer and she's still here. We're pretty sure you're even more resilient than mama. Please keep us posted.

    Happy Belated Birthday to K! She and Abby are about the same age. Abby's is a guess, of course, as she was at least a year old when mama rescued her.

  10. Great photos. I love Moab. I have been there several times to Mountain Bike. Next time I want to bring Chester and Gretel and do some hiking too.

  11. Oh, it is a magic place. I'm sure you felt positive healing energy there. It's wonderful that you can channel these images and energy as you undergo testing.

  12. Beautiful, magical painted skies and canyons!

    Your pal, Pip

  13. We cannot get enough of the beauty you are sharing! Oh to stand there and be in the presence of Mother Earth herself! I know what we would feel- peace- healing.
    Thank you for sharing..if it were not for you- we would not know this touch from mother earth.
    She touches us- through you!
    Fanstastic photos.. cannot get enough of them.

  14. It's hard to pick a favorite picture, but I really like the last one. Hope you are feeling well.

  15. So beautiful. Just breathtaking. Words and pictures never really describe the experience. I could stay in the same spot and never tire of it.

    My favorite place. I will get back there some day.

  16. There is not a day that we forget to be grateful for our glorious sunsets. Even at our lower altitude the Sandias glow like watermelons on fire within during that magic time. We understand.

  17. Exceptionally beautiful photos this time. I notice K is getting very white around her face . . . so is Stella!

    Cheers, hugs and good wishes!

    Jo, Stella and Ziva Zophia (we are trying this new name!)

  18. We are amazed at your beautiful photos and can't even imagine seeing these places in real life. Thanks so much for sharing. No worries, and love, Carol, Stella and Rory

  19. Absolutely gorgeous... I love the glow that the sunset gives.

  20. We agree you have some awesome calendar photos!!!! Thanks for visiting. We DON'T see anything fou-fou about your beautiful athletic Labs. We think they are awesome too - like your photos!!!

  21. I do consider all the ideas you've presented in your post. They're really convincing and
    can definitely work. Still, the posts are very brief for novices.
    May just you please lengthen them a bit from next time?
    Thanks for the post.
