Utah colors and MEESES!!

We got a new camera! So apologies, there will be lots of pictures here. Utah is near peak when it comes to fall colors, and the Moose are out getting some late season snacks. Friends from church live outside of town, up in the foothills, and this mother and calf came up their driveway.

It's hard to describe how big these things are, but this other picture helps, with the garage in the background. Wow, I don't think you can park a moose in a garage! Actually, this little known fact helps explain why the horse was chosen as the more popular mode of transport back in the day.

In between storms, we took the long way back from church today and caught the colors in the sun. Here's Ben at Snowbasin.

A new storm was rolling in, which is supposed to leave a dusting of snow above 7,000FT, and the clouds made a nice contrast to the colors all around us.

Every once in a while you'd see one bush that seemed to be on fire.

And finally, I have to close it out with Esther's best picture of the day. This one may go up on the walls.

awesome! yesterday i watched the kinds of clouds that look like they are sitting on a glass shelf-- the whole way to church. do you know what clouds i mean? it was amazing. we saw the snow on mountains for the first time since we got out here, too. we haven't experienced the fall colors yet, there aren't as many trees here...

Beautiful pictures! I'm going to try and get Phil to paint one of them- I'll let you know how it turns out. Gorgeous!

I 2nd, 3rd and 4th that -- the pictures and scenery are breath-taking. Don't we have a wonderful God to have created all this for our enjoyment.
