Shortly after I took this picture in the beautiful Glacier National Park the skies opened up and it started to pour so I had to put my camera away and race back to my car as I didn’t want to be stuck out in the rain if it started to lightening in the area. Luckily no serious injuries occurred – except of course the sprained ankle I got tripping over a pothole along the trail.
I took off yesterday from O’Hare in Chicago and it was -2 degrees with wind chills in the -30s….landed in LA four hours later and it was a bright, sunny 70 degrees. They are predicting 80 today! What an amazing thing air travel is! I was also treated to one of the most spectacular sunsets of my life – the clouds were absolutely perfect and the ocean was calm enough that I was able to capture the sky reflecting off of the wet sand. Looking forward to getting home and getting them up on the computer. It will be a number of days thought because I’m heading to Death Valley for a few days tomorrow. California is really, really nice in the winter. Otherwise, I’ll take Chicago anyday as the traffic in LA is greater than any other city I’ve ever been in.
