Bucket List ~Day 1~ Bryce Canyon, UT

Today we are off to beautiful Bryce Canyon in UT
 God definitely had his hand in the making here.  Bethe, we are getting closer to OR. (smiles)

 Bryce Canyon National Park (play /ˈbrs/) is a national parklocated in southwestern Utah in the United States. The major feature of the park is Bryce Canyon which, despite its name, is not a canyon but a giant natural amphitheater created by erosion along the eastern side of the Paunsaugunt Plateau

What beautiful sunset this could be a place you could just go and get lost.

This is another place we better have lots of media for our camera's.  The 3rd picture shows amazing beauty for miles upon miles.

The bottom picture shows a lot of creativity wow a hole right in the middle, doesn't it make you wonder how it stands?


We will be doing a couple days here in UTAH as there is also Arch Canyon, and several different national parks.



Do you enjoy going to places like Bryce Canyon?

Hope everybody has a wonderful weekend








Bucket List ~Day 4~ Memphis Tennessee

 Today we are going to the Volunteer state of Tennessee  Memphis to be exact.  First on the list is Graceland then to the pyramid.  The Memphis belle has a really good restaurant.  It is pretty cool to sit on the water and eat your meal.  98 my parents and I went to Nashville for family reunion.

Tennessee has had several nicknames, but the most popular is “The Volunteer State.” The nickname originated during the War of 1812, in which the volunteer soldiers from Tennessee, serving under Gen. Andrew Jackson, displayed marked valor in the Battle of New Orleans.  Memphis has an estimated population of 646889, making it the biggest city in the state of Tennessee, the third largest in the Southeastern United States.

Memphis is also home of the blues music.

I have heard stories that the pyramid is haunted (I have a higher power that tells me those evil spirits do not exist)  I wouldn't be scared to go here, in fact it might be quiet interesting.

The Memphis belle is an old riverboat, that has a restaurant, used to be good food, and is very peaceful sitting on the river while eating.  



Bucket List ~Day 2~ Rocky Mountains Canada, Calgary

 Welcome to day 10 of our bucket list. 
Today we are off to the Canadian Rocky Mountains.
Calgary (play /ˈkælɡri/) is the largest city in the Province of Alberta,Canada. It is located in the south of the province, in an area of foothills and prairie, approximately 80 km (50 mi) east of the front ranges of the Canadian Rockies. The city is located in the Grassland region of Alberta.


think seeing the wild mustangs would be awesome!! in their habitat with no fences...wonder if we could tame a couple of them?  wouldn't that be awesome to write 
home and tell our families we tamed a stang?

The 2nd & 3rd picture(s) all that we can say is WOW!!! what majestic beauty.  God definitely had his hand in the making here.


The 4th picture would be an awesome train ride through the nature.  being a big train enthusiast this would be amazing.


Hope everybody has a Blessed evening.

Blessings

Caverns are so awesome and their beauty is delightful, hard to believe even on those 100* days it is almost cold in those places

sorry I've been away

hey all my beautiful blogging buddies,  sorry I have been MIA for the last few weeks.
3 weeks ago I had a very bad fall (messed up my ankle, knee and hip they thought hip was broken thank the lord it wasn't just severe arthritis.  Stayed on crutches 10 days per dr order.
These crutches and I did not get along at all.    Needless, to say I had another very bad fall.
I shattered my right arm (both bones and some in the wrist)  having surgery for pins, plates and screws and I am right hand dominant  had to keep it elevated and iced most of the day for over a week.  Got the cast off and now have a removable splint yay does it feel good

I did manage to get caught up on some of my computer work, and plan on getting back to my blogging ASAP  

thank you all for continuing to follow my blog
