The Rocky Mountains

Did I mention that I loved being in the Rockies,even if it was only for one day?
I know many of these pictures may be similar,but there was just so much beauty,I didn't know when to stop shooting.

I sure was glad I was not driving through here,or we might have hit the ditch or worse.I couldn't take my eyes off the scenery.


This is very similar to the previous picture,only zooming in more on just one mountain.

I have no words to describe this.


Can you see Steve and Kai in this picture. Both were busy getting their own shots.


The blue sky certainly added to the beauty of the mountains.


I never actually sang out loud,but in my heart and mind were the words to How Great Thou Art.
Oh Lord my God,when I in awesome wonder,
Consider all the worlds Thy hands have,
I see the stars,I hear the rolling thunder,Thy power throughout the universe displayed.
Then sings my soul,my Saviour God to Thee,
How great Thou art,how great Thou art

  1. I'm not sure how you could keep from singing when surrounded by these beautiful mountains. I can't sing, but I couldn't help but think "I lift up mine eyes unto the hills from whence cometh my help."

  7. I think of 'How Great Thou Art' so often when I am looking at the wonders around. The mountains are so majestic, and when I think of how they were formed it blows my poor little mind. We are so insignificant and yet so blessed. Beautiful pictures Ruth. All things bright and beautiful...

  12. Ruth, spectacular images! The mountains in that area are certainly beautiful! I've lived out here for 45 years and still never grow tired of their splendour. I think I got over a thousand shots this spring, going through there!

  19. What a wonderful trip! I loved our time in the Rockies, the wildflowers after the fires are so beautiful. We were there 2 years after a fire...I will never forget all the bright red fields of Indian Paintbrush.

  20. Just gorgeous! I think our White Mountains in New England are impressive but they are merely foothills in comparison.
