Rocky Mountain Scenery

I don't usually show so many photos of one subject or place,but,these are the Rocky Mountains and they deserve to be shared. I had such a great time during the one day I was there,so I really want to share as much of that day as I can.

This was at the start of our drive into the mountains.In the distance I spotted this long waterfall.I took this shot while driving.

 This area had been burned at one time and the sign said it was a controlled burn,perhaps to prevent forest fires from spreading.Check out the peak Kai is pointing out to you.

Here is a closer look at that peak.


It was a beautiful drive through stands of tall trees and always those gorgeous mountains ahead of us.Yes,that is snow,or more correctly,those are glaciers on top of the mountains.


Looking down and not to be missed is the gentle beauty of the wayside flowers.I think the purple/pink one is Fireweed and of course it is surrounded by Daisies. 

From the rugged beauty of the mountains to the small intricate beauty of the flowers,all has been created by God and He allows us to enjoy it daily.

  2. I'm glad you're sharing more photos of those magnificent mountains. I hope you'll find more to share in the days ahead. I don't know how anyone could visit such a place and not thank God for his glorious creation.

  10. A spectacle of majesty and beauty to be sure!! That close up of the peak is awesome as are your wildflowers. But I think I appreciate most the sign of 'timber line' in that one photo....the high, thin air. FRESH!!
