Winter Clouds over Mountains

It has been several years since I have had the opportunity to behold the beauty of a snow-blanketed plain with mountains in the background and a serendipitous flock of clouds overhead.

Somewhere north of Scipio and south of Nephi, Utah, a northbound roadside view looking east from the side of I-15, heading home for the holiday.

  2. Remembering those stark, beautiful, but cold ๐Ÿฅถ winters. Thanks for the lovely capture of some old, familiar territory. You may remember I once lived near the top of one of the mountain tops once upon a time not far from there?
    Wishing you all the best for the coming year. ๐ŸŽ‰๐Ÿงจ

    • I remember that you lived out by Cedar Fort, but not that you lived near the top of a mountain…I would imagine that it was a particular kind of wonderful up there!

      Wishing you the best for the new year, as well, Gunta…thank you. ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Uh oh! It seems I’m starting to repeat myself! You’re not old enough to be having ‘senior moments’! ๐Ÿ˜

        • That’s okay…seems that being in my sixth decade gets me pretty close!

  3. Awesome landscape panorama. I need to get back into landscape photography; I’m a bit out of practice.

    . . . can I borrow a few mountains?

    • Thank you, Emilio…don’t know how I can help with the mountain situation. I’ve got something like mountains nearby, but they rather pale in comparison with what we’re used to finding in our intermountain west. Maybe you’ll find yourself closer to them when you choose your next neighborhood….

    • Perhaps, as we age and shrink, even small mountains will loom large.

      Right now, big mountain areas are not likely to be in our future (for reasons like what happened in Boulder). We can’t avoid all natural disasters, but there are some that worry us worse than others.

      • That all makes sense…especially with the increasing likelihood of decreasing summer rains and increasing drought conditions in the west.

  4. I didn’t realize you got that much snow out there. It looks like you have more than we do. It’s beautiful.

    • This was on the way up to Salt Lake City, Allen…and it’s waaaay more than we get out here in the desert!

  5. Beautiful view, Scott, I’m glad you made the trip and I hope it went well. Maybe you’re already back – probably. In any case, best wishes for 2022!

    • It was a wonderful view, Lynn…and so very nice to behold again. And yes, I’m back in the winter, metropolitan desert again with temperatures in the mid to high 60s already.

      Wishing you the best for 2022, as well…thank you. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Here we are… 2022. It was a long fence row but we made it ๐Ÿ™‚

    • We did, indeed. ๐Ÿ™‚
