Show & Tell Friday

happy Friday, Friends, and welcome to another Show & Tell Friday, here at Home Musings.

First my Show & Tell. See my cute little jack-o-lantern lamp? I found it last year in a thrift shop. Of course, once I uploaded this pic, I realized the cord is showing - tacky, tacky, tacky! :)
Next, Sweet Friends, I am so excited. My baack is doing SOOOO much better (I end up not having as terrible problem as they thought, just good, old fashioned arthritis!). Meds have made me mobile again and what was the first thing I did...I had the husband drive me up into the mountains... Want to see what is 10 minutes from our front door?
This is Snowbird ski Resort, up Little Cottnwood Canyon. Drivnng up there one goes form high desert climate to soemthing akin to The Alps!
It had snowed there earlier(rained in the valley) and the peaks were in the clouds.
Above we are headed back down the mountain again. On the way, we stopped to admire the Fall colors that are still ripening along the mountain sides.
An interesting rock formation.
Cliffs surrounded by Autumn color.

We had a really wierd cold snap early on, which dumped snow into the mountains and killed off leaves on trees which normally brim over with color.
A lovely stream flowing from mountain run-off and Silver Lake above.
..And last but not least, a beautiful collage of muli-coloured fallen leaves.

Have a lovely day and please be sure to check out more Show & Tell posts over at Cindy's blog, My Romantic Home.

It's so beautiful where you are Elizabeth! I'm so very glad that you're feeling better sweet friend, there's hardly time for moms to be out of commission!! Have a wonderful fall weekend sweet friend ~ hugs and love, Dawn

Trish said...

I liked the drive...thanks. You know, we are similar...you and I...in where we live. I live so close to the mountains and yet in my little town (on the outskirts of the big City)....one would never really know. When I go to work during the day I am with City folk..grin. But when I get back to my town I am with farmers and young couples escaping City life with their kids. But when I load Radar up in my Yaris and we drive ten minutes from the house...we are ALONE in the mountains. Isn't life grand and God's handiwork even grander? Happy Weekend my southern belle.

Gorgeous pictures! I grew up in the Bavarian Alps and that's the first thing these pictures reminded me of. I now live in the foothills and orchards of PA...not quite the same, but still a pretty area. Thanks for sharing.
