Sky Watch Friday



This picture was taken way back in 2003, long before my beautiful Nikon came into my life. It is one of my favorite places in the world, the Grand Tetons (Wyoming, USA).

We spent a couple of days here when Derek and I were chaperons on a high school summer geology trip. The only negative thing about this part of the trip were the mosquitoes at our campsite. They pretty much ate you alive. We cooked dinner bathed in insect repellent with every part of our bodies covered with clothes, gloves on our hands, and only our eyes visible to the world. Yet, the mosquitoes still swarmed us and tried to eat us.

You can't beat this view, though. It is worth every mosquito bite I got. Even with all of the tourists you can always find a peaceful spot to just gaze at the mountains and take in all of God's beautiful work.

To see more sky shots, or to join in on the fun, visit Wigger's World

This reminds me of place nearby where I live. I'll have to photograph it and post it. It's a cross on top of a hill in a city that is not so saintly, but it's a constant reminder of how important it is to set our priorities in a valuable way!

Nicely done!
