Not much in the way of a desk to share with you this week. Chuck and I are taking a vacation that we have been talking about for years but have never been able to do. We left home on Sunday headed toward Tucson, AZ to visit an old friend and boss of Chuck's. After we leave here tomorrow we will be heading to visit the Grand Canyon and on to California and Oregon. I brought crafty stuff to work on and will probably have a desk to show you next week and maybe something crafty I have made. For today I would like to share a few pictures...Before we left to come on the trip Chuck and I spent a day cleaning up and shutting down our swimming pool for the winter. I have always dreaded closing the pool down each fall because it means the summer is truly over!
We moved most of the plants in the house because it will probably freeze before we get home in November. I took a picture of this hibiscus that I am hoping to winter over in the house. I haven't had much luck doing this but keep trying each year because the lady next door does it and I figure if she can do it so can I!
Our first day out we stopped in Roswell New Mexico for the night and the next morning I typed the information into my phone for our next stop. I really like the map feature but this time I must have done something wrong because it gave us directions way out of the way for where we were going! It ended up adding another couple hours onto our travel time yesterday! I got a few good pictures of the Guadaloupe Mountains and El Capitan peak and the Salt Flats in southwest Texas...I know how do you start in New Mexico and end up in Texas...big state!
The great Salt Flats!
Chuck getting back in the car after being out pacing along the highway while waiting for a pilot car to come and navigate us through the road work that was being done.
The road work went on for miles with only one lane available to traffic.
Some beautiful sky scares today also. I took a picture of this...the bright rays going from cloud to ground are called crepuscular rays. Crepuscular rays are actually rays of sunlight that appear to radiate from the point in the sky where the sun is located.
The next picture is of another salt flat in Arizona. The sun was shining on the ground and it looked like a large lake in the distance that turned out to be more gypsum.
Okay that is it for me today. I hope you drop by WOYWW and join in the fun. Check it out on Julia's blog!
