Today was the last day to do visiting teaching for the month and so I snagged Pam and took her to the canyon. I didn't give her much of a lesson but we had a good two hour talk, which was as important, I think.

She goes up into this mountain a lot with her hubby and says at Christmas time these barns have two big wreaths on them.( I obviously am a little tilted.) The amazing "rabbit" tree. (He's looking to the left.)
Someone is ambitious and harvests wild mountain honey.
This tiny cabin has an elopement ladder and a swing set--so to speak--out back.
Some children refuse to grow up and leave the comfort of Momma's milk.
Some do.
This is the "go away" compound. It was hard to see as it is surrounded by trees but there are several cabins there and it looks like a whole lot of fun.
See? Go away.
We should do our visiting teaching in the mountains more often.

Any chance to get off into the mountains should betaken if you can see the Hare resting when he should be racing.

You've taken beautiful photos Lynne, you know on those days were you don't feel like writing, just apost a photo, they're all lovely :)

I agree, if one must teach it looks as if the mountains would be a nerve-settling place to do so.

I alsways wanted a sign that says:
"be nice or go away"

Those "GO AWAY" people arn't very friendly. I bet they don't have lawn swings in their front yard.

Pity pity them

This looks like heaven on earth to me. The tree, the honey, the honeymoon cabin with the tilted ladder. And the "Go away" sign. Poetry, all of it.

Beautiful! I wish I was closer to some cool mountains.

Lynne I have great visiting teachers too. I think I might request you though just for the amazing trips up to the mountains. If your VT partner can't go with you give me a call, I'll stand in.
I loved the photos and wished I'd tagged along. What a great spiritual lesson in the visit itself.
