  •  A beautiful place. (0+ / 0-)

    One of my big photographic regrets is not stopping and going back to photograph a huge meadow full of flowers in full bloom right by Cedar Breaks, which was itself (as your photos so clearly show) gorgeous on a glorious spring day.

    Thanks for posting this.

      is always spectacular up there, mofembot, because the snow and rain is ample. At 9,000 above sea level the monument is also closed until late spring and closes in early autumn. I guess the flowers have to make the most of it while they can. Thanks for posting your comment and it's never too late to head back to the 'Breaks. . .say, sometime starting around mid-May.

        of the Atlantic to be able to get back to Cedar Breaks easily, at least this year!

          what could possibly be on that side of the Big Pond that might suffice. AS I said, I'm thinking. . .and if I come up with something I'll get back in touch. Meanwhile, I am sure when you get to this side of the Atlantic you may have time to come see the Breaks again. Likely, it still looks the same since last you saw its stunning facade. Thanks for posting your comment mofembot.

            and I am trying to see them at least once a year. (They're making noises about coming over next year, but they'll be 82 and 85 respectively this year and they've been saying "this is the last transatlantic trip for the past several trips they've made in the past, so…. However, money's a bit tight at the moment. Hope to make it over in the fall if possible.)

              mofembot. . .to get you (or them) reunited: let's get a crowd sourcing thing going with the community. Who knows about these strange things and how they might turn out? But we know there's one hellava community we're part of and maybe a charity drive to reunite elderly parents with their progeny might do the trick. Lovely place to live, by the way. Can you believe the Mormons even grew cotton in that neck of the Utah woods?
