Thank YOU for all your kind comments on my trip posts!
I hope you'll continue to enjoy touring the country with me (and hubby of course).
So, I got to thinking. that at my very slow-maybe once a week posting of the trip pics-it'll be spring before I get them all posted. Plus, I have SO many photos (taken since our return) of wetland waterfowl and the coast (of course) that I am eager to share with you too...
Anyway, I decided I need to increase my posts to maybe 2 or 3 a week. We'll see, with limited data and a crazy, crazy life and maybe Christmas visitors coming...who knows? :)
Today's post will be a bit of a potpourri of things we saw and ate in Utah. I miss seeing these places already...
The mountains of Utah always captivate me!
I took this photo during one of the photoshoots I did for my DD on our return to their home from our trip south. The colors were incredible--I finally fulfilled my dream of being in Utah in the autumn. Now, I just want to be there every autumn! This was taken at about 5200 feet in elevation if I remember correctly. Oh--and I did get to spend some time admiring my beloved aspen (not in this photo)
Up in the mountains (canyon) still. There's a pretty lake close by here.
Another view of my beloved Utah mountains.
All the better with a bit of icing (snow) on them, don't you think?
One of the many cornfields of Utah.
Early morning is made even better when you're out in the middle of nature!
This was taken at Golden Spike National Historic Site up in the Promontory Point area (which I totally fell in LOVE with). Had a very enjoyable time up there with our dear son-in-law, who played tour guide for us and his incredible mom (who has one of the sweetest hearts I have ever known). This was one of the two places we used my hubby's America the Beautiful pass at. The pass is an excellent buy if you are a senior as it's only $10, good for a lifetime and allowed hubby and his visitors (the three of us without passes) in for FREE!
A "spa" (natural hot springs) my son-in-law took us by. The water was quite warm, the decor unique:)
My DD made this for me. She knows it's one of my favorite meals!
There are NO words to describe how awesome it is...but I'll try. LOL
Fabulous, flavorful, great, wonderful, totally yummy...
makes me hungry just looking at it again.
It's a Mexican seafood soup.
Another photo that makes me VERY hungry is this one.
Yes, this is an Amish buggy.
Yes, this is in beautiful Utah.
And yes, I only wish we lived a LOT closer to this store which is filled with shelves of the yummiest preserves and about everything else to eat!
If you're ever in Utah, in Willard or Provo, I highly recommend a stop at Apple Creek Bulk Food Co.
and Apple Creek Amish Market.
Oh and yes, my dearest hubby just finished our jar of pumpkin pecan butter last night.
Here's a link to their site should you be interested.
By the way, this store--though they don't know it-was an answer to one of my prayers.
It just so happened that I wanted to bring back some Amish jams for friends at home. and never really got a chance to stop down South at one of the several places that have Amish made products. Then the same day we landed back in Utah, I found out about this store when I did a search for Amish jams on the Internet.
Well, it just so happened that my DD was heading out on an errand to meet someone and asked me if I wanted to go with her. And where you ask was she going? Yep. the place I had JUST learned about on the Internet.
The place that had everything I had prayed for!
Coincidence? Nah. She doesn't even live in that area.
God is VERY good!
