The Road Home

The image in the rear-view mirror caught my attention while heading north for the holiday…an impromptu stop along the highway captured a new memory affirming photograph of home.

Looking south along I-15, somewhere between here and there in Middle Utah.

  2. Beautiful capture of the type of landscape I’m slowly beginning to forget.

    Happy travels and happy hiking (I assume that will be happening).

    And, of course, Season’s Greetings.

    • Thank you, Emilio…and I’m sorry you’re slowly starting to forget the amazing winter landscapes. I think they’re most beautiful.

      I’m not able to hike at present, due to a presently restricting knee situation, but I did drive about the valley as much as I could, making images of the mountains from various perspectives, and essentially just visiting the city.

      Season’s Greetings to you, as well…thank you.

    • Facing some knee problems here as well, although not as restrictive as what yours sound like . . . racquetball is the gift that keeps on giving, sometimes more than I would like.

      And… you are welcome, and thanks for your greetings.

      • Hmmm…and yes, indeed…the gift of racquetball that keeps on giving. It sounds like an STD, but I absolutely know what you mean…and it applies here for me, as well, with surgery on the horizon.

        You are welcome, too, Emilio.

  3. “…somewhere between here and there…” LOVE that place (both literally and figuratively!)

    Wishing you and yours a very happy, warm and most of all healthy Holiday! Good to see you heading out into the between here and there!!! πŸ˜‰πŸ€—β˜ƒοΈ

    • That is a wonderful place, Gunta, between here and there. πŸ™‚

      Thank you for the holiday wishes…and yes, it was so nice to be out there again…so heart-filling….

  4. Beautiful, wide-reaching mountains. I’m glad you’re back in Utah and I hope you’re having a good time. A healthy and happy New Year to you and your family!

    • I do love those mountains, Lynn…and it was so nice to be there again…such a rich experience.

      And thank you for the holiday wishes…which I send to you, as well.

  5. I hope your knee situation resolves and also want to wish you a great new year. You are a good man, Scott.

  6. Thank you for all of the above, Mike, kind words…and I wish you the best for next year, as well.

    I haven’t seen you for a while, but did happen to visit Facebook today and saw you posting there. I hope you and your family are doing well…and that you’re still enjoying your retirement.

    Take care, Brother Mike.

  7. You have some beautiful scenery there, Scott. I hope I have a chance to see it someday.
    Sorry to hear about your knee too. I hope it is an easy fix.

    • It’s the Home of my heart and plans for the future, Allen…back in Utah. I’m sure you’d love it.

      The knee will be completely replaced, so I’ll be off the racquetball courts and trails for a few months at minimum…thank you….

      January 1, 2022 at 1:00 pm

      • I know other bloggers who have had knee replacements and it worked out very well.

        January 1, 2022 at 1:19 pm

        • I have a small handful of racquetball friends who’ve had it done and they’ve returned to play without an issue…so I’m hoping for the same. πŸ˜‰

          • It should be a breeze for someone who is athletic to begin with, I would think.
            I hope you have someone to dote on you during the recoup.

            January 1, 2022 at 1:25 pm

  8. It will probably be a little tougher than a breeze, but I’m hoping it’s not too bad…and yes, I have my wife and son at home to lend a hand during the recovery.

  9. The beauty of geologic time is that your mountains will be there waiting for you to come home… Whenever that is ❀️

    January 1, 2022 at 1:53 pm

    • That’s certainly a wonderful thing about geologic time, isn’t it?

      How nice to see you here again. πŸ™‚
