Showtime on the Prairie


I spent the last two nights with my Mom, about two hours from our home. I didn't want to leave last night so I just left from there early this morning to drive to work. Mom was worried about me doing that but I love that drive and see something beautiful every time. 

As the sky started to lighten up I could tell I was in for a treat.



The thing about the prairie is, there simply isn't much to get in the way of your view.



I could see such a wide panorama of this beautiful light show!  



It was so beautiful I had to pull over to enjoy it. I knew I could not take it for granted. I am aware that many never get to see such a wide open view of those magnificent colors. 


The blue sky soon took over the sky and it was over... For today.

What a wonderful way to start a new day. I thanked God for the experience.

That's just beautiful! Here in Seattle we miss so much of that due to all the trees. The trees are nice, for a while. I really miss seeing the sky now!

Cindy, I know what you mean. We lived in Issaquah for 2 years. It was very beautiful there, but I said the trees got in the way of the view. They made me feel a bit claustrophobic but a friend I met there told me the trees made her feel more secure. I think it is just whatever you get used to. There is beauty pretty much everywhere on this Earth.
