This is my post for Skywatch Friday, a meme for sharing views of the sky from all over the world.  To see more, or to join and share your own photos of the sky, click HERE.

On going through my archives recently, I found some pictures taken in June, 2011, as Betsy and I drove from Kanab, Utah, to Bryce Canyon.  The morning was very overcast, so we weren’t sure of what the weather would be like at Bryce, but we headed out anyway.

As we drove along we were impressed with both the Utah landscape and the vastness of the sky.  We stopped several times along the way to get pictures.

At times the clouds were so low that they they touched the tops of the mountains in the distance.

At other times the clouds would part enough for us to see blue skies and the beautiful red cliffs of Utah.

On a more personal note, I had my first date with my Beautiful Bride on March 29, 2001.  She was a minister at Hendersonville (Tennessee) First United Methodist Church, and we made a dinner date to discuss some Bible Study lessons I had missed because my work took me out of town.

The Bible Study never came up the entire evening.

    These are great, George. Utah is beautiful, even under overcast skies. But it looks like the sun came out as you neared Bryce Canyon, which had to have made that experience even better. I smiled as you told about your first date with Betsy. Love it!

  7. Ginny Hartzler Says:

    The first picture, the sky looks like it was painted by Van Gogh or someone else…see the extravagant brush strokes? Well, of course it was painted by God.

    Looks like your skies up there are as big as ours down here – and the red cliffs make me feel right at home!

    My husband and I try to get out to the Utah desert every year. It never disappoints,. Your images are really nice. Isn’t amazing how many photos we take? I love going through my archives. Someday I hope to digitize some of the images I did with film.

    As for you Bible study evening back 2001 you have had plenty of time since then to cover the lessons you missed. Blessing to both of you during the Easter season! xo teri
