Corner View: Spring

Happy Wednesday! This week's Corner View subject is Spring.Here, Spring is known as mud season. After the mountains close for skiing (in about two weeks) many people leave town. It's a quiet, relaxing time to be here, but for outdoorsy people it can be tough... it's difficult to go anywhere off the paved road without encountering mud (see my drive to Monday's hike). We begin to yearn for green and flowers, which won't be here for at least another month. Luckily, I truly love the Spring snow. I had a lovely hike in it the other day, so I wanted to show you...And, see my up-close view of this hawk? Oh, he was so loud, too!Happy me!

Happy Monday

Happy new week to you! Aren't these so totally cool?!
My husband is doing a little cleaning out... These are a friend's 20-year-old dirt bike boots. I told him these are going into my stash for a bit!

Hello! I hope you are having a relaxing weekend. I had a free moment this quiet Saturday night, so I'm using it to post some images that made me happy this past week (I should use it to sleep, but)...Enjoy!

The Reason for the Trek

... was Legoland. Yes, we had other motives and many adventures along the way, but this trip was really a pilgrimage! And, as anticipated, our day at Legoland was a really good one.
So, I think that's that's the last of the trip posts! Thanks for sticking with me and for all your fun comments. Now on to some Spring inspiration, I think. It seems that it will come earlier than usual up here in the mountains... and I'm excited for it!

Utah and Zion

Happy Wednesday! I promise to be back to Corner View next week, but today I have the second-to-last post from our long road trip (please scroll down a bit if you have any interest in the previous posts!). This one includes a few shots of breathtaking Zion National Park...and, finally, of the road home...

Oh!! I won!

Do you remember Sammy and Glenn of Pacha Design?
(I blogged about them here and I included their delicate, lovely leaf lantern here.)

Well, they held a give away and I was a lucky winner of the very same delicate, lovely leaf lantern! I'm thrilled!
And one day, I'd love to be the proud owner of each of these fine Pacha Design creations:
I know many of you who would, too! Thank you so much, Sammy and Glenn. I can't wait to see my leaf lantern in person.

Into California

We loved our trip through California's desert to the coast and, finally, the BEACH!

The Grand Canyon

This was not nearly as sad as it looks...Despite the snow, and probably because of it, this little side trip was a great adventure. We laughed at our resolve to get there anyway. Though the weather kept worsening, we had to go on! And to us, on this day, the Grand Canyon felt very intimate.

More Arizona

And more Arizona... approaching a wall of snow clouds, snow in the mountains at Flagstaff, then clearing on through Kingman.
