Skywatch Friday: Along the way

I didn't get a chance to take many photos because of all the road construction while we were driving cross-country, but I couldn't pass up the opportunity at this Utah rest stop. Utah was where I thought for sure we were all going to be killed by those crazy drivers on those hairpin turns through the mountains!

At least the scenery was pretty here and there ;P

For more skies to ogle, go to Skywatch Friday!


  1. What a gorgeous and far-reaching sky! How different parts of the USA are.

  2. Really nice, thanks for sharing. It's great to visit other places without even leaving the studio.

  3. WOW, WOW, WOW! Utah blew me away when I traveled E to W twenty years ago. You captured the magic. I hope your travels have been fun and safe.

    Peace and joy to you ~M

  4. What lovely images in the last post. Hope you are getting on well in your new abode. It is always hard moving and leaving old friends behind, but great to make a new start. I love the crows in the bar. We used to play that at school but we called it "chinese whispers". Great sky here. Utah looks like a huge open land.

  5. lo, this is beautiful. i've only been in utah once (saint george) and i remember how vast and stunning it all seemed, kind of like a prayer....

    i am so glad you are home and near.


  6. I always love seeing those big puffy clouds. What big sky country you were in.

  7. I really did enjoy this post and the sky and mountains.

  8. This is so pretty! It's almost like a painting as opposed to a photo.

  9. Weren't the skies and wide open spaces awesome Lolo? I loved that best of our travels. I have so many photos of skies, clouds, and wide open praries.

  10. Thats a great photo. I like the way the clouds look like someone is dangling them on a string.

  11. Lolo: That is a neat sky over the mountain, thanks for sharing from your trip.

  12. it has a remote and almost surreal look about it, just as i always imagined utah to you glad to not be driving today friend.

  13. Wonderful weather you have. The clouds are very cute.

    Have a nice weekend.

  14. I've never been to Utah-it looks lovely!

  15. Utah is the secret of the west...truly a magnificent state from top to bottom and east to west...or in your case west to east!!! Great photo! :)

  16. Pretty SkyWatch, looks like a painting!

  17. You think they're crazy out there...stay away from Ohio!!! We did a lot of hiking the last couple of weeks and I saw several ravens in the low canopy...I was a bit surprised to see them given our location but you popped into my head...

  18. the sky is there
    vast and blue
    reminding us
    that freedom
    can be true...

  19. Oh Laurel I feel safe here with you. I want to thank you my dearest raven sister for all of your love that you have sent my way. I have felt it and I am grateful.

    I love you so much Laurel.

    How is home? How are you dear heart? Are you happy?

    I hear you met kj. Was it awesome?

    Love Renee xoxo
