Breathtaking Beauty

So some of you may not know that I was born & raised until the age of 14 in Connecticut. My family has roots generations and generations deep in New England. I have lived in Idaho for going on 16 years now & while there is much about it I love, I miss New England & a large part of my heart is still there.

There are times that I think that I have seen all the beauty there is to see in this state. And every time I think that, I do something like I did last week. I had to go to Logan for more insurance inspections, so I took a day off work & talked my mom into coming with me. This is actually my tricky way of getting chauffered to my appointments! Anyway, somehow, in all the time that I have lived here, I have never been to Bear Lake. But I had to go to Soda Springs before going to Logan, so we decided to drive along the lake. The sheer beauty of the lake with the mountains behind it were breath-taking. We then turned & went through the Cache Valley National Forest(I think that was the name) and went through the Logan Canyon. It was the most gorgeous drive I have made in a really long time.

These photos are from the drive through Logan Canyon.

Of course, there's no way I could fail to mention that we got to see one of my very favorite temples. I just love the Logan temple. I think it is just gorgeous and I can never go to Logan without going to see the temple.

I know, I know, I've been severly lacking in my posting. I only wish I had a cool reason for it. But I don't. I've just been finding myself overwhelmed & feeling like I just can't keep up on everything. I've been letting things go & blogging is one of those things. The bad thing, and what I have to change is that I've been letting slide alot of the things that I really enjoy & that I think help to keep me (somewhat) sane. I've got alot of choices in front of me & a lot of things on my plate. But I promise I'll start blogging again!

But I'm going to start tomorrow. For tonight, I have a headache & I'm going to bed.
