A Breath of Fresh Air

Yesterday we took a ride up to the Dixie National Forest in Utah. It’s the first time since my trip to Anza Borrego that I’ve seen trees with real leaves, like, oaks and pines.  And my first time by living water since the creek at the canyon in Arizona at the beginning of fall.

I take oodles of photos, but post very few, using usually just one, or maybe two, to highlight a post.  This post will just be a collection of things I found beautiful along the way in the last few drives out and about in the wild.

I also photograph heart rocks, and collect them, so I may put one or two of those here as well, but I think they deserve their own full blown post in the future.

Enjoy, as I surely did!


Indian paintbrush flower ?


Full view of flowers


Not a redbud…?


Unknown yellow flowers


Unknown, maybe manzanita?


Live water!


Big but scarred heart


Heart in heart

If you recognize these flowers or trees, please let me know. I’ve scoured plant pages until I think my eyes will bleed, lol!

If you are able, get outside, surround yourself with nature, and just be still for ten minutes. Your mind and heart will thank you 🤗

~SE, from the road.
