There Is A World Out There

Category: Just stuff | Posted: Thu Feb 18, 2010 1:35 am

Well, I actually got out of the house today for the first time in three weeks other than a jaunt to the store real quick. Been down with pneumonia and dealing with those beautiful new puppies. Tomorrow we do a vet check. One of them is starting to open its eyes!

So today I got to drive up north (about 1 1/2 hr one way)where we go to church to teach my Bible Study. It was a beautiful drive and like an idiot I forgot my camera so you will just have to close your eyes and imagine.

There is a grade that you go down that is extremely curvy and a very steep grade. As you start at the top you look out over this vista of unimaginable beauty. Way at the bottom there is a river. Between you and that point are tons of trees, a meadow or two, cattle roaming and deer skipping through the valley. Pine, aspen, tamarack...all kinds of trees. All sizes and all shapes. Wild turkey is rampant through that area.

Today the clouds were hanging over the tops of the trees like soft white cotton was draped and woven in and among them. The sun was shining and there was reflection from way at the bottom on the river of those clouds. Took my breath away by the beauty. Next time I will remember my camera. I grew up in Iowa and while the green rolling hills and the fields are pretty, in my heart nothing can compare to the enormous beauty of the mountains in and around the area where I live.

I've traveled much, seen much of the good old USA and every area has its draws and its own kind of beauty. For me, this will always be home. I can breathe here.

I grew up in Idaho and your discription brought back many mind pictures. You'll have to rememeber that camera so we can enjoy the scenery.

I am old enough that my folks used to take us into the Idaho primitive area before it was set aside as such and vehicles were banned. Later, as an adult, I back-packed and floated the Snake, Salmon and Clearwater rivers. As much as things have changed over the years parts of Idaho have stayed very much the same. It is truly a unique part of the country.

GR: Thank you. It's been a long haul. I would take up all the space in existence if I posted all the pics of this beautiful country. But I'll post one or two soon.

Jewell: We've lived here 10 years and haven't even begun to scratch the surface of discovery of this land. Our favorite thing to do is load the dogs and a picnic, find an old logging road and travel it until we can't. Then we walk. It's amazing what you discover. We used to snowmobile every weekend until my hubby's job got so crazy in the winter. We saw more pristine untouched land that way. I can never go back to being what we lovingly refer to as a "flatlander".

Droopy - I usually carry it with me at all times but I was so excited to get out of the house I simply forgot it. Won't happen again. LOL
