That is so beautiful!!! We have all of that here too..Capitol Reef (10 min. from my home) is like this, not as big but instead of looking down on it, you are down in it! ;D

Who could create such beauty but God? Those sights are gorgeous in the photos so they must be breathtaking in person. Thanks for showing them. Shannon

One of my favorite places on Earth! They took some marvelous photos.

Wow! I've never been to the Grand Canyon, but it is on my short list. I just want to wait until we have time to explore on the way there and back. These are stunning photos!

Good evening precious Maria!!!

To capture time in the Grand Canyon....that is slowing down indeed, long enough to reflect on things MUCH BIGGER THAN US!

How are you dear one? Is the heat done now over your way?

Good morning precious friend,

OH WE ARE GETTING RAIN TODAY TOO! What a summer...but it has been grand in the sense that it has given me more time to read and create. THANK YOU for asking about my writing...well, I do believe that for ME, blogging has been the place where I have been focusing on the style of writing I believe I am called to write...inspirational. I am accepting the fact that I will not be pumping out anything great overnight, but the READING that I am doing to instruct me on how to write poetry is VERY HELPFUL in guiding me where I want to go. THANK YOU for your kind comments on BALZAC! I shared it with a writing group and it was not as enthusiastically received by those present. My husband even said I need to shorten it, but I haven't had the desire to touch it lately. I want to start fresh...but I fear that I am going through what many aspiring writers go through.....doubt. I am trying to take my own advice and trying to swim into deep waters, but it so deep for me, I am afraid!!!! Oh all this philosophical talk! YOU HAVE A TRIP TO MAKE!!!! Have a funnnnnnn trip with your sister dearest!

Anita

Tanya said...

Linda said...

Magnificent!! It is on our list of places we must see some day. Thank you for sharing the wonder Maria.
Have a lovely weekend.

koralee said...

Oh my goodness...breathtaking indeed my friend. I have never had the glory of being there myself..it is on my list of places to see. Every year I tell my husband that we should take a camping trip to Yellowstone..but we never do. Maybe next year.

So glad you had time with your dad...I really need to get down to see my parents in August.

Have a great weekend...it is a long one here in Canada....which is good... I have my husband home an extra day to help get settled in. xoxoxoxoxoxoo HUGS

Gloria said...

GORGEOUS!!!!! What amazing and beautiful views she captured. I just love that first pic of the two of them looking at the grand canyon. She has her Mom's good eye for taking photos I see...:)

I hope you are enjoying the rest of your Summer!!! Sweet blessings to you my dear friend...:)

xoxo...Gloria

WOW what a SPECTACULAR vista...just gorgeous.
Ry and one of his buddies did a road trip to this LARGE land last year. He too thoroughly enjoyed himself, coming home with many stories.
How is your summer going dear friend?
We have been working on landscaping and gardening on the last side of the property. Our reward will be a fishing trip in the mountains, during the last week of August...can hardly wait to sneak away.
Sending a H*U*G your way my dear...Rosie
