Blue Sky Farm

My blogging posts and photos are part of me . I think of this as a scrapbook of my life. The names have not been changed.. they are real people who have crossed my path along my journey. Some I know intimately, my family and friends. If their names are mentioned it's a sure sign they are special to me and I love them dearly...come along see for yourself, perhaps you know some of them too..

Death Valley Pictures

 We drove through some mighty pretty country. We have been here before but during much  hotter weather. These colorful hillsides were so pretty and rightfully names as we took the drive. Greens, browns, purples, golds and tans..all created by mineral elements in the soil. If you are given the opportunity to visit I do recommend doing it. I guess one really  does need to appreciate the desert and its beauty. I was thinking of the pioneer's traveling through this and wonder what they must have been thinking.

Beautiful pictures! I've been to Death Valley twice, long, long ago, but I still have some pictures stashed somewhere. We camped in a tent in February and it got hot at mid day, but was comfortable later on in the evening. I don't even think they allow tent camping anymore, but I'm not sure.

We saw all the sights too and just loved it. Maybe some day I can go back.
