The Sky, Oh My!

We have some of the most amazing skies I've ever seen. Ever changing. Ever beautiful.

This is from one 24-hour period.

It's time for Alphabe-Thursday again, and this week we're observing the oft ogled letter O.

O is for otoño.

The fall colors are just beginning to make their appearance here in the mountains of Utah. In the southern hemisphere, though, the seasons are reversed. Autumn, or otoño in Spanish, is from March to June. And that's when we made our last journey to Chilean Patagonia.

Off you go now. Head on over to Mrs. Jenny's and see what the other Alphabetarians are offering for O.

Too Much to Do on My To-Do

You see this? Yes, this!

You know what it is?

Yes. My new camera. The one I've been waiting for since February. Yes, February.

Am I excited? Yes, of course!

Then why am I showing you shot with my iPhone...?

I'll tell you why. Cuz I'm too busy to actually take the time to take it out of the box and figure it out and see all the nifty cool things it does. I have too many things to do on my to-do list. That's why!!

But soon. Yes soon. And when I do, watch out world!

Another ABCtoZ Thing

A body could do everything for good health in just keeping lively motion near one's psyche. Quietly resisting sharing truly ugly viciousness will extend youthful zest!

Hahaha. I did it. Mrs. Jenny's been on an alphabet kick the past few weeks. But hey, I'll play. Used each of the 26 letters of the alphabet in 126 words or under...way under, in my case. 

And the images have what to do with it? Nothing, but then so what?! 

Now be nice and go over to Mrs. Jenny's and see what everyone else is doing for their Saturday Centus too.

Naturaleza, Naturally!

There's nothing more prevalent in Chilean Patagonia than naturaleza, or in English, nature! So naturally, with the nifty letter N being next for Alphabe-Thursday, that's what I'm sharing with you this week.

This image is not very sharp since it's greatly magnified, but I couldn't resist showing you this Andean Condor, soaring high above the sheer rocky cliffs. (Click on the image to enlarge). Condors have a wing span of up to 10.5 feet...huge and graceful, but not very handsome close-up. Note the condor in the image below also. (This area, located between Mañihuales and Pto. Cisnes, is known as a condor nesting spot, so it's common to see them here). The cliff tops were easily a couple thousand feet above where we stood.

Don't forget to stop by Mrs. Jenny's and see what the other Alphabetarians have in their nests this week.
