Hello All Seasons Bloggers,
The link this week is open from Sunday Sept 16 through Wednesday Sept 19 till 7 pm, Pacific time.
Finally have the page up for the newcomers with the “rules” HERE.
When you invite someone to All Seasons, please refer them to the perma link HERE above – thanks so much!
Loved all your posts and you know I appreciate each of them! Fun to read last week about the “old” things you or your family used, that in a few years probably will be displayed in a museum.
Last week Sept 11 was a very significant day – 17 years ago, but never forgotten.
It has been so busy I hardly had any computer time, so if I dropped some stitches, my apology!
Can you believe it in a a week summer is officially over!
This bridgehead (do you see that bridge in the distance?) one needs to pass, to start the 6-hours hike to Half Dome (Yosemite Nat. Park). This is where I cross the river and go painting, and hubs happily climbs along to 9000 feet.
When walking on the path above this view, and you see this beautiful scene below, you can’t pass without taking a few minutes to have your feet in the water.
Different kinds of rock in Bryce Canon than in Yosemite Nat. Park:)
Both hubby and I love “views” but in a different way. He climbs until he gets a view, and preferrably goes to the top or rim, like in this photo. I take the easy way out, and paint a view from an easy to reach place.
The contrasts in colors here are breath taking! So are the difference in temperatures. Already in June temps are over a 100 degr. F during the day.. Fortunately a dry heat!
Almost every afternoon between 2 and 3 pm, the sky suddenly gets dark, and I literally have to scramble to cover my painting gear, and run to the car, because a very cold air stream causes the temps to suddenly drop (literally 30 degrees, not exaggerated!) while a sudden hard rain pours down. After half an hour the rain stops and it warms up again.
If you have never experienced this, it has the same effect as an earthquake. Your heart skips a few beats, because people are shouting and running everywhere to seek cover, before the rain. And after an hour, it’s like nothing ever happened.
