Flagstaff to Colorado


North of Flagstaff, originally uploaded by ivoryblushroses.

I'm taking advantage of a break in my schedule to visit the family in Colorado! I left Flagstaff yesterday evening. The sky and clouds were beautiful and our recent rain has caused the landscape to green up a little. I drove up through the reservation and across Monument Valley, past Canyonlands NP and Arches NP in the dark of night. Just as I entered Glenwood Canyon, the sky was starting to turn light and I could see the Colorado River glimmering alongside the highway.

Edwards, CO
At Edwards, Colorado, the alpenglo was beginning on the peaks and I was able to stop and take this lovely shot of some of the snow covered peaks.

Aspen in morning light
After crossing Vail Pass, the rays of sun were just beginning to shine into the valleys. I loved the way the spring leaves of the aspen glow in the morning light! (forgive the smudges on the car window!)

Allium
Arriving at my parents home, I was greeted with the sight of my Mother's beautiful Alliums blooming in the morning light! So lovely!
