From Sunup to Sundown

Have I mentioned I do so love living in Idaho despite the challenges of living here? I know what you’re thinking, “what challenges could you possibly have living in Idaho?!”.

Well for one thing we have to pay for potatoes.

Like, full price!

I know. It’s quite unfair. You would think they’d just give us a free bag each week but nope, we don’t even get a discount!

We also have a ton of California refugees flooding over our border. These are people who, for some crazy reason, believe that we are all citizens of the US of A and have a right to live in whatever state we want to!

Can you imagine?!

Of course *I* was once a California refugee who felt the same way but that was a looong time ago so it’s easy to forget. ๐Ÿ˜†

But back to why I love it here. I was looking through my thousands of photos I’m supposed to be sorting through in order to delete a few hundred duds and found oh-so-many of the beautiful sunrises and sunsets I’ve taken over the years.

If you’ve been reading this blog long you’ll already know I have a thing for sharing lots of photos of flowers, huskies, mountains, birds and sunrises/sunsets. ๐Ÿ™‚

I can’t help it! They are just so pretty, I have to share them all.

Here are some of my favorites.

This one was in Grand Teton national park a couple years ago…

And of course this one is of the Grand Tetons when I drove my son up at dawn on his birthday to greet the day together…

This one was over in McCall at the resort…

This one was taken in our yard…

This one was when we were camping out at the river…

Finally this one, from when we were fishing at the reservoir…


I don’t ever remember admiring them this much when I was a kid growing up in the San Joaquin valley, although I’m sure California had plenty of beautiful sunrises and sunsets. I just was probably too busy dreaming of moving to Idaho to get free potatoes back then to notice them!

Actually, before I got sick and was forced to slow way down I didn’t have time to notice them as much as I do now.

But boy do I notice them now…

And I cherish each and every one of them because it means another day here in paradise. I mean Idaho.

Anyway, hope you have a lovely Friday wherever you are in the world. ๐Ÿฅฐ

  1. I love that yellow and green sky above the Tetons, and that last photo of the Tetons is utterly spectacular. You should come back to California, where I live. Here we get a free can of fruits and nuts every week. I hope you have a nice Friday, also.
