I own no land, instead I have wheelestate. I’ve been a full time RVer since 1997. Working summers as a Park Ranger takes me to many beautiful places and playing during the winter takes me to many more. This blog is simply the story of my life's adventures.

SWF – So many skies to choose from

Lately we’ve been traveling around southern Utah and northern Arizona where the skies often begin with the clearest Southwestern blue.

02 Cedar Breask NM from Hwy 14 E UT (1024x768)

Then a few lazy clouds may drift in to add dimension to the sky.

03 Turkey Vultures soaring over Navajo Lake Hwy 14 UT (1024x480)

Or a light wisp of clouds just lighten the color.

04 Storm brewing over Kaibab Plateau from Hwy 89 N AZ (1024x768)

But it is monsoon season so the clouds can quickly build into storm proportions.

05 Sunset over East Rim from Marble View Kaibab NF AZ (1024x766)

Yet the clouds do bring some of the most magnificent sunsets.

06 Mike's silouet against sunset at Marble View Kaibab NF AZ (1024x736)

Offering an unusual backdrop.

07 Stormy sky over the canyon from Lodge NR GRCA NP AZ (1024x766)

Wednesday afternoon from the Grand Lodge

And at Grand Canyon the skies have been mostly gray and laden with a bit of rain here and there. Only to open and scatter allowing rays of sun to highlight sections of the canyon’s walls.

That's quite a variety of skies. These are beautiful shots.
Alaska had mostly overcast skies but the sun came out enough for some good shots.

Diane AZ said...

Wow, you and Mike certainly have seen a lot of gorgeous skies lately! There hasn't been much rain in Tucson yet this monsoon season. The land looks quite parched, ready for a good soaking.

Barb said...

Catching up with you, Gaelyn. Your skies have been varied but mostly clear it seems. I LOVE your header Is that mist?

Love your new header. Wow - it's been a while! I've been so busy since I arrived in the states last month. Is your phone # the same as last year?

One could possibly get a cink in the neck looking up at all the sky in your part of the world. Beautiful skies all around.

Who needs art on the walls when you can look up and see different skies like these. Beautiful!

It's a dilemma to have to choose isn't it.
I like them all. An ever changing sky.
