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..

Home from Our trip

 ( Cambria) Pacific Ocean shot near the Elephant Seal Beach, ( The seals come here every year to breed and deliver their calves. This is a Big Male sunning on the beach) A real huge and ugly beast.
 Here is  Montezuma Castle ruins in the hillside ( the cliff dwellers Indians ) lived here this housed about 45 people)
 Horseshoe Bend  near Lake Powell where the Colorado River carved its way through the Colorado  Plateau, through sandstone. Actually this is the beginning of the Grand Canyon Northern rim.
 As you can see  the sandstone has been environmentally washed, blown and drifted for years to create this formation. Unbelievably Beautiful.  We really enjoyed our trip and returned to rainy , windy weather and this morning it is snowing.. Sure wish we were back in canyon country... fortunately  we took many many pictures and  I will post more another time..

We visited Montezuma's Castle a couple of years ago....and how cool that was! I wanted to move in. (Seriously it was a beautiful spot.)

Maybe I'll see you this year if you're up our way.....
