~.~.~ new year’s weekend 2009 ~.~.~
i grew up in the outdoors. i’ve been blessed to learn of the creatures of the desert, the splendor of a flash flood, the secrets of the mountains, the beauty of the uninterrupted night sky, by actually being around them. so it’s even more of a bonus to be married to a man who has the same passion for being in the outdoors; albeit in a jeep, four-wheeling. but i’m good with that too.
this past new year’s weekend we spent our time with family & friends at our usual stomping grounds; ‘the ranch’ off highway 74. we spent 2 days changing flat tires, putting out engine fires, repairing drive shafts & plugging holes from missing axle housing plugs; all in the best of spirits. it was a gorgeous weekend-why spoil it with foul moods?
here’s some of my favorite images. enjoy.
