It's a Beautiful Day!

Hi friends,

We've had a lot of gray skies and rain this past while so it is wonderful to get a patch of blue sky and sunshine now and then.

Here is what greets me today.


The wind whipped up this afternoon and changed the shape of the clouds. It also revealed all the fresh powder of snow on the mountain tops.

This is my submissions to Skywatch Friday today.
Enjoy your weekend.
