Sandstone Skies




There are a lot of sandstone formations in northeastern Utah.  The more famous formations are in the southern parks but we have our favorites right here at home.

For more fabulous skies from around the world, check Sky Watch Friday starting Thursday afternoon.  Apparently my plate is full because I thought today was Thursday.......

Beautiful Loran... Don't we ALL enjoy our 'local' favorite beauties???? I love the Smokies--but Gatlinburg is where all of the tourists go. SO---we stay away from that area during summer and holidays!!!! There are so many other beautiful places --which not many folks know about. They are equally as gorgeous--or more-so.

Love your mountains!!!
Hugs,
Betsy

A breathtakingly vivid and dimensional terrain. All the better for being lesser known!

It's nice to have such beauty in your own back yard, and wise when you appreciate it. Great formations and color in those rocks.
