Cherish is my favorite word, and I cherish the ability of turning the routine into a beautiful moment.
Nature creates in me, a spiritual and meditative time to bring peace, harmony and balance, into an otherwise ordinary day~

Somewhere in Utah~

 Somewhere en route from one side of Utah, to the other, was a small park...this park. 
It was just a small drive up, loop through kind of park. 
It had a name, but for whatever reason, I forgot to write it in my travel journal.  
I tried to locate it on the map later, but it had been so small, I could not find it mentioned...
It had a few very interesting formations, and some lovely views.  
It is still out there, and maybe one day, I shall see it again and remember to write it down.
Until then, I can at least share it with you~


I bet this guy and his cat know the name of that little park.  
It had begun to rain and we stopped in a small market to grab some water.  
This  happy young man had his cat on a leash and was standing along side the building.  
I told him hello and his smile was great.  
I asked about his cat, and he said he traveled everywhere with it and he called himself the "cat whisperer..."

There was another lovely old tree just like this one in the little park, but sadly some youth had thrown dozens of pairs of shoes up into it.  
We saw that done twice on this journey...
I guess it is a rank beneath graffiti~


  1. Beautiful photos of the rugged landscape. I love the rock formations and round holes. I also like your plaid scarf. It almost looks like the Gordon tartan. Blessings, Pamela

  2. Mary, even though you cannot recall the name of the small Utah park, it is no less beautiful. Stunning captures of this lovely area, you and your gorgeous shepherd! The gnarled dead tree has such character and the rock formations are so very interesting. It's always a joy to view nature's beauty on your wonderful blog!

  3. the ghostly rocks are so pretty! but the gnarled tree takes the prize. of course you, your hubby and your pretty pup are wonderful, too.

  4. Great post! Love those rock formations..very intriguing. Pretty dog too. And I really like your flower close-ups.

  7. So you manage to meet the cat whisperer ;-) Seems to be a nice man! Your pictures are wonderful Mary and I would have for sure enjoyed such views! Thanks for sharing

  8. Lovely photos of the rugged landscape with those weird rock formations Mary. Utah is just one of those places to read about in books or see in those old cowboy films - ones I used to watch as a boy.Have a great weekend - Friday pm here.

  9. Mary, what beauty! Love those shots of the Cat Whisperer, and the stark beauty of the bare twisted tree.

  10. Loved the pictures of the smooth rock formations with the interesting holes, and that tree is wonderful!
