The way the scattered ever-busy bright lights of a city might look off to a distant mountain range

You know, some days you just have to get up into the mountains. Here are a few pictures I took when I went for a rather long drive with my brother and his two youngest girls. Of course we had to get out and play around in the water a little bit here and there.

Here are some of the pictures I took along the way. They're not very good because I forgot my regular camera, so had to take these with my phone, but hey, it's better than nothing.

















I would've taken more, but the last half of the drive was in Wyoming, and we all know how ugly Wyoming is.

I posted the second to the last picture on Facebook, which immediately prompted an invitation to go hiking with an old high school friend the next morning. I'll post those pictures later. Wouldn't want to overrun your senses with too much rugged beauty.

Beautiful pictures! It's very pretty there. It's true that sometimes you just have to go to the mountains.

Yes. Sometimes it's nice to..."get high".

You've posted several of my favorite places in Utah. Almost makes me wish we still lived there...almost.
