Those Utah Mountains


Ah! There's nothing like a day in the Utah mountains.

This weekend the family gathered at the family cabin. It was officially "cabin workday" where everyone comes together on the same day and gets all those projects done that are

hard work,
really no fun at all,
but when everyone pitches in as my Grandma used to say,

"many hands make light work"

And so it was. The day was beautiful, the sun shone brightly in the morning, and the summer foliage was absolutely green and stunning.

I couldn't resist photos of the wild WILD birds, who emptied the bird feeders as fast as we could fill them up. Hummingbirds who buzzed around our heads, the orange grosbeaks were everywhere and so beautiful.

We unanimously decided that we have got to sloooowwww dowwwwnnn just a bit and make time for a return visit soon.

Ahhhh! There's nothing like a day in the Utah mountains.

How nice! I can almost smell the fresh mountain air from here.

There is nothing like the Utah mountains. I know. I think it's wonderful that you get to be planted at their feet. What a blessing to love them and take advantage of them.

I love the photos--especially the birds.

We talk all the time about getting a cabin in the UT mountains...or any mountains for that matter!

That's what I miss the most, the mountains. The ocean is nice, but it just doesn't compare. Enjoy!
