I took a lot of photos on my recent road trip. Here are a few of just the scenic views along the way. There was a lot of rain and clouds which added a lot to the beauty. These two are the Vermillion cliffs in northern Arizona.

My sister and her family keep chickens. I woke every morning to him crowing. Although one night, he was crowing at 2:30AM. Crazy rooster. This is one of her many laying hens. I brought back 3 dozen of my sister's eggs.
I pulled the onions out of my sister's garden. She had a lot of really nice onions. I brought back 4.
This is the product of my sister's squash vines. She thinks they are cross bred zucchini and summer squash. They were quite huge. She was calling them inedible because they were so big, had a lot of seeds and the skin had gotten tough. I told her I could make something out of them. I brought 3 back. I have made some inedible squash bread (zucchini bread) and a soup so far. Now she says, it's not that they were inedible, it's just that no one up there but the chickens will eat them.
This is the herbaceous border on my sister's side yard. It looks so nice. I am envious of all the area she has to plant and grow things. They are expecting snow soon though, and so it's close to the end for a while.
My mom, sister and I went for a long drive one day. We went by a farm that raised Clydesdales. We saw this adorable baby Clydesdale. Not quite like the commercials, but still adorable.
My nephew Daniel. Much more grown up than when I last saw him 2 years ago. He loves to work on cars.
When my sister and I went on a four wheeler ride, her dog Beau rode in front and Chiara on the back. Baxter, the huge chocolate lab, couldn't come because he was too big to ride.
