Hello! I'm back from a bit of R&R.
After hearing of the loss of a dear friend,
DH and I just had to take a bit of time
to get away and just be in the moment.

We headed for Capital Reef National Park!
What a beautiful place to spend
time reflecting and getting
your thoughts together.

So off we went in our little Teardrop trailer!
We take her out for short little trips!
Very comfy to sleep in and has all
the camping extra's one needs!
Isn't she a cutie? We make quite a statement
driving down the open highway!

Being in Capital Reef National Park
was a wonderful and reflective place
to spend a little time.

The skies were beautiful!

The scenery was breathtaking!

How could one not get a bit of perspective
on life with this stunning scenery?

 Capital Reef National Park is
simply breathtaking!
With it's deep blue skies
and red rock reef walls.

There is a lot of history here in Capital Reef.
Petroglyphs dating back over a 1000 years.

This was our beautiful view from our
camp sight! Pretty nice digs, right?

And, this! A view from the drive home!

Seeing all this natural beauty really helped
me to think, reflect, and to put a few
things in perspective.

There's a much larger world out there
of great beauty and magnitude.
It humbles oneself and makes you
realize how very small you really all!
I mean, looking at places that are
thousands of years old and how
nature has weathered the surroundings
and created something so beautiful out
of sand and stone!

It's truly a humbling experience!

Thank you all for leaving such kind
and wonderful expression of love
for the loss of a dear friend!
Your words truly touched my heart!

  3. What a beautiful place for a getaway. Those photos are gorgeous. We visited Bryce Canyon a few years ago and I was amazed at the beauty of the canyons and their ......can't find the word.......the size and majesty of the canyons is just breathtaking. Hoping we can visit again someday when my husband retires.

  4. How beautiful is that scenery! So glad you got a chance to get some much needed R & R!
