I can’t believe we only have a few days left. Where’s the time gone?  We’ve had lots of great rides, seen moose and deer, reveled in all the flowers, hiked, watched the horse, and sat on the porch relaxing.  That’s what I was planning to do tonight, but it looks like it might be a pretty sunset.  Let’s head up to the top of the hill and see what it looks like.

Phew, the air at 7,000′ has a lot less oxygen than where I live! I’m huffing and puffing like the horses do when we ride up these steep slopes, but now we’re doing the work of the horses.  Thankfully, we don’t have saddles and people on our backs!

Oh, my goodness! Look at that!  It was worth the climb. Look at the colors in the sky.

Happy Wednesday, the last Wednesday, if you can believe it, of July.  Where’s the summer gone?  But no matter how fast it goes by, each Wednesday brings a new Photo Challenge theme and today that’s “Satisfaction.” I guess that means we can get some satisfaction, right?  🙂

I love road trips, nature, and beauty, so a combination of all three gives me a great deal of satisfaction.  This South Dakota sunset was so beautiful that I pulled off the highway and took some photos, not content so simply see it in my rearview mirror!

11:35 am EST, Wednesday, July 26…Can anyone else see comments or pingbacks from the Photo Challenge?  I tried two browsers and I’m not seeing anyone’s entries, including my own.

I realized this morning that the photo I used for the challenge, chosen last night after a very long day, was one I took with my Nikon and not my phone.  I used both during my trip, so I got a bit confused.  So for Sally’s challenge and this week’s theme, “Nature,” I submit this one instead, taken my last night in the desert, a fitting farewell photo.

As the sun begins to set on the Weekly Photo Challenge, two hours late and not counting any longer, I offer you my own photo for the week, taken just last night as Bill and I took a walk around the lake.  Enjoy the peace and have a wonderful weekend!
