Hello Friends.

As I am typing this we are in Moab, UT.
But Moab wasn't our first stop.  Our first stop was Zion National Park.
We have been to Zion many times.  It is a beautiful Park with lots of wonderful Hiking.
On this particular trip it was a bit cold and windy.  But in the late afternoon the
wind would stop and we were able to get in some short walks.

I do have Five photos to share with you today.
All for Random Five Friday.
Even though they aren't too random.  Most of them are flowers seen this week.



My Hubby put this photo on his blog but I wanted to share it with you here
on my blog.  Here's Big Bertha in the site we had in Zion.
What a view!!!




I brought my camera along on a walk through the little town
of Springdale. I was able to get a shot of this fence.
Perfect for Theresa's meme Good Fences.



 I just love this time of the year, Blooms everywhere.
Even here in Zion.



 I had some fun playing with this shot in Photoshop.
I might have had too much fun.  I think I over did it.



 I even found some Tulips standing up and looking pretty.
I'm really surprised this shot even took.  It was so windy out.
Not good for taking shots of flowers.



I have no idea what these beauties are but they were
calling out to me "Take My Picture... Take My Picture....

Linking up with

RANDOM FIVE FRIDAY
OUR BEAUTIFUL WORLD
GOOD FENCES


Well, you can tell Spring is in the Air..
Hopefully I will be back soon with a few shots of the
photos I took at Arches National park today.

Wishing everyone a Happy weekend.

Hugs~

Linda,
You did find a beautiful view to park your camper.

I like the rustic fence with new green plant life intertwined.

Thank you for sharing signs of spring, I need that! We had a blizzard on Monday, wind and snow yesterday and it's still pretty chilly today.

Zion is one of my favorite places!
We adored Utah. Your post makes me dreamy - so lovely & colorful while we still live in a land of snow & monochrome.
I like the photo shop image - I don't think you overdid it, but if you did, I think it's ok to do that once in a while. ;)

Lucky you! Zion and Moab are two of my favorite places. You have so many special photos of your travels. You'll have to make some photo books to remember your time on the road.

Cathy H. said...

Oh my, what a beautiful place to be parked! The flowers are lovely! We've had a lot of wind lately making nature photography so hard!

All such gorgeous shots Linda! Im so glad you are enjoying your travels and the weather has been great for hiking and even enjoying some occasional rain! This is what spring is supposed to feel like! :-)

Wendy AppleApricot said...

Ohhh I love love Zion national park, so beautiful out there!
And honestly, you rock with macro shots. Gorgeous work! You can even make one little thingie of that fence look interesting! Although a beautiful fence, I wouldn't have thought of shooting for that one thingie, but it looks amazing with this shallow depth of sharpness.
Wishing you a happy trip! xx
