A Brighter Day
I photographed the Mount Timpanogos Utah LDS Temple the other day. It was a beautiful spring day, and the blossoms and the bright sky made me think of light and optimism. I love the hopeful words of this beautiful pioneer hymn.
"The dawning of a brighter day
Majestic rises on the world."
—"The Morning Breaks", Parley P. Pratt
"Come over the hills and far with me,
And be my love in the rain." — Robert Frost, "A Line-storm Song"

For the Strength of the Hills
The Payson Utah LDS Temple, against the mountains, and surrounded by the green of spring.
Back in March, I'd had my eye on a bunch of blossoming cherry trees near my home. I finally found some time to go photograph them - and it was just in time, because the next time I passed, the flowers were gone.
Timpanogos in May

Deep Snow Road
Deep snow marked the edge of the road to Crater Lake, Oregon. This was May 30th. I wonder how much snow there is in the winter!

The Sky is Bigger than the Land
Sometimes we think the mountains are big. We just haven't yet compared them to the sky.
Green mountains fade to white after a spring storm.
The Place I Call Home
There are so many interesting and beautiful places in the world - sometimes I think about why people choose to live where they do. One of the reasons I love where I live is that we have ready access to the mountains. This panorama was taken from a small peak overlooking the place I call home.
New green, dark skies, warm sun, cold wind. I love the season of Spring!
Each Saturday, I take my children hiking in the mountains. I treasure this valuable time with them out in nature.
