Split Mountain


I just haven't been able to get a good sky shot this week, too much work and too many cloudy skies.  A friend of mine and excellent photographer took this shot of the Green River and Split Mountain in the Dinosaurland Monument.  I asked her if I could "steal" it for my blog and she graciously consented, stating that theft is a sincere form of flattery.

I'm off in the early morning hours to Provo for work, then Salt Lake to visit my daughter and spend the night and then home again Friday.  I'll be a busy little bee for the next two days.

SkyWatch Friday will have many more beautiful pictures posted starting Thursday afternoon.  The world is a beautiful place.

That's a splendid photo -- congratulations to the friend who took it, and a big thank you to her for the sharing! It's a stunner.

I have very happy childhood memories of Dinosaurland and the Shenandoah Valley, OMG. You made me laugh out loud when I read that!
