Stop the car!


I was driving home from Salt Lake when the sunset became so dramatic that I had to stop the car.  I forgot my window was broken, I couldn't roll it down.  Even though I wanted to get home I got out of the car to take some pictures.  Some skies are worth stopping for.

You can visit other spectacular skies at SkyWatchFriday.

Life has been so busy I haven't been able to find myself!  I've been in high gear putting in a greenhouse, going to a wedding in Aspen, scheduling and attending all manner of work-related events, and planning for a camping trip in Wyoming if the snow melts.  This weekend it might be nice enough to plant flowers in the yard.

Whew.  Time for bed.

Glad you're keeping busy but still find time to cast an eye to the skies.

Your life sounds busy, but at least you took the time to enjoy the sky. Hope they snow melts in the mountains before summer's over...

I asked Hubby to stop the car for a photo op recently, (several actually), you just can't pass them up for you don't know when you will see another quite like it.
