Cloud Top Mountains




Provo, Utah

Provo Mall

Lehi - My street -barely see my mountains.

South Salt Lake convention Center


 Cloud and tree reflections - South Salt Lake Convention Center

You have to catch those clouds right away because they move so fast that in less than 5 minutes, they have changed their positions. I attended the semi annual gem faire in South Salt Lake but didn't stay too long. One of those sudden Ice Pick Headaches attacked me but I did get what I needed that day. They just drop you to your knees and take the stuffin right out of you. I am trying to get an appointment with the Migraine Clinic at the University of Utah but apparently it takes months to get in.  Oh well, such is life and the migraines have been with me now for 9 years so they are not leaving. The Ice Pick Headache, however, is new this year.

Superstition Springs

 I wanted to get a shot of those marvelous clouds to the west. This section of Mesa has so many different types of fencing.

 Reflections from the mall
I do believe someone wanted to make a character out of this cactus.

Mesa, Arizona

I did a quick trip to Mesa this last weekend for a funeral. My cousin who was only 75 passed on and out of this life and out of pain. Cancer is so vicious!

Fence and gate in Mesa.

 The only clouds in the sky were to the west.

 Strange trees - these don't grow in Utah.

 It was 103 degrees F. that day.
This is my first closeup flower photo that turned out good.

Lehi, Utah

 They have been building this new complex of offices or shops for the last year and today, I caught them beyond the fence working on top of the roof.
I took a little drive around Lehi and found this cute little mailbox next to a loose wire fence. If you look closely, you can see a pioneer lady and a fellow sitting on the wagon.

Rocky Mountains - west side

In the heat of the summer of 2016, our snow on the Rocky Mountains did not disappear until the end of June this year.

Bluebirds In Idaho

Linking to Good Fences

There must be a lot of bluebirds in southern Idaho and northern Utah because I ran into a lot of places using their names.  The Bluebird Inn on Bear Lake (Idaho side), the Bluebird Restaurant and Fountain in Logan, Utah (been in business since 1914).

This was the fantastic view of the backyard from my room at the Bluebird Inn in Idaho.

Filet mignon covered with mushrooms and onion - yum. It was scrumptious! Apparently, The Bluebird Restaurant in Logan, Utah also makes hand dipped chocolates and fountain drinks like ice cream sodas.


The State of Idaho claims the Mountain Bluebird for their state bird, while Utah claims the California Seagull as their state bird.

Shambles

Linking to Good Fences

This chain link fence is new and very sturdy but the house is rather a shambles.  Can you imagine rebuilding trying to save this house from just falling down.  It was probably a pioneer home built on the northern shores of Bear Lake, Idaho.
