Pictures of our smokey vacation

We went on vacation last week, and we had such a great time with family.

One of the days we were there, Paul and I headed off by ourselves to take some photos of the mountains and valleys by where we were. It was very smokey that day, from fires in areas miles away. Though I don’t like the smoke (it aggravates my allergies), I do think it gives a pretty look to the mountains. But the biggest thing I remembered while editing these photos, is the lack of vibrant color out there. We lived in this area for 4 years, and it truly does have a beauty all its own, but it’s not real colorful. Out where we live now, there is more colors, more flowers around, more grass etc… But I still love the beauty out there, and the feeling of peace and being in the middle of nowhere. So nice. 🙂

I love the look of the long fence line in this one. And yes, that blue haze is smoke.

I think the smoke looks pretty between the mountains.


I love that building in the middle of nowhere right in front of the mountain.

Looks like the road is never ending.  That’s the road we came in on.

We saw some cows grazing while we were out there.

A very old looking cattle pen. Believe it or not, though it looks so old, they still use this pen when cattle is out there.

Though I brought my tripod, we decided to just take individual photos while out there. 🙂
