We finally got away last week! I can't even tell you how much we needed this break! I don't think there is anything better than to get away from the hustle and bustle of our busy world. The only problem was - it wasn't long enough!
We have driven past this little cabin for the last 37 years, and I have never taken a picture of it, so I finally got my picture. I remember my husbands grandmother took a picture of this same little cabin, and she painted a picture of it - it was beautiful. She wasn't really an artist, but I thought the picture was so pretty - I've always wondered what happened to it?
We finally made it to our destination - one of my favorite spots! I am so amazed how green it is in the hills this year, usually by this time of year, it is very dry. This is the view from my front step. The sky was truly brilliant blue!
While my husband took a nap, me and Cole played Frisbee! I don't think he ever gets tired of playing!
In the evening, we would go and check out the landscape - it was so beautiful, of course I'm kind of partial to sagebrush, I think it's so pretty, and I really do love the way it smells . . . I know, I'm a little strange! But you are never too far from the pine trees and Quaking Aspen.
One night we ran across this cute little Sharptail Grouse, who just refused to move out of the road - she must have had some babies lurking around! I'm so glad she let me take her picture!
This is where we were headed! I love to see the Grand Tetons from the Idaho side! I never get tired of taking their picture.
I think this little cabin is so cute, I just had to take a picture of it! It's been there for many, many years! It's quite a ways off the road, so nobody ever bothers it.
We had a few cloudy days , but only a small rain shower - I thought the clouds were so pretty!
This night, there had been a fire in the valley, so the sunset was extra pretty! In fact, my camera wouldn't even capture the bright pink in this sunset!
At night, after the sun set, we would have these amazing lavender skies.
We were so lucky to be there when there was a full moon, it was absolutely beautiful!
I took this picture just as it was peeking through the trees!
At night we would build a big fire . . . after all, what is camping without a fire . . . and lots of smoke!
My husband checking out the night sky! See that full moon in the background?
Time to go home . . . until next time.
Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts.
