Just what I need is a summer pic because we had a dusting of the white stuff again yesterday.

Beautiful.Mountains are incredible. No matter how many you see, you just can't stop looking at them. Or taking pictures.

Leah J. Utas said...

David, I understand. I needed to see vital and green again.

Laurita, thanks. I agree. I dread to think there may be a day when I no longer gaze at them in wonder.

Ahhh, a little green is a good thing this time of year!

Chris said...

Spent last weekend in the mountains over Tucson, and while they are rugged and beautiful, THIS is my favorite kind of mountainscape. Ah, summer....

Bossy Betty said...

Gorgeous! What a peaceful scene.

I want to move where i can see mountains in the summer. Then move to Tahiti every winter.

Leah J. Utas said...

Bag Lady, it sure is.

Chris, so glad you enjoyed the pic.

Betty, they calm me so quickly.

Messymimi, I am so grateful I have scenes like this so close to me.

Just lovely Leah.

Dawn said...

Love the Mountains!
And that giant spruce tree looks like it's standing up a bit straighter to see the view too.

Have a wonderful weekend Leah.

Leah J. Utas said...

Thanks, Reb.

Dawn, you're right. I think the tree wanted a better look.

Been out of the loop all day. Somehow I missed this magnificent view. Goes straight to my wallpaper folder. THANKS!

Hilary said...

Your mountain photos always make me take a deep breath. It might be a gasp. Just beautiful.

Leah J. Utas said...

LilredWriting, it's my pleasure.

Mary Anne, it sure is.

Ron, that's quite a compliment. You're most welcome.

Thanks, Hilary. Maybe you'll make it out here one day to see for yourself.

Dawn said...

Beautiful view. I hope that is from your kitchen window or front porch.

Leah J. Utas said...

Dawn, I do see mountains out the front of the house, but not these.
This view is from about 30 miles west.

Wow. Just wow.

Leah J. Utas said...

Thanks, Arc.

David Barber said...

Great photo, Leah. Love the snowcapped mountains in the distance.

(Apologies for the delay in looking. Been a bit busy but have finished work today for the festivities.)

Leah J. Utas said...

Thanks, David. No need to apologize. I understand.
