IF-Wilderness



The "Illustration Friday" theme this week was finally an easy one! It was just a matter of which illustration I should use. "Up with the Sun" depicts ice climbing in the San Miguel Mountains- surrounded by mining towns like Telluride, Ouray and Silverton. Ouray has an ice park, where they have rigged water pipes to the side of the cliffs and can build ice walls- pretty wild!

And on the theme- check out the low cloud covering Mesa Verde National Park- I was watching yesterday morning- when the sun decided to come back to Colorado- it had been absent for a very long time and finally is pouring down on us again- Isn't God's creation amazing!!

Mesa Verde has disappeared, you can see only the very tip of Lookout Point, the clouds had socked down on the valley floor.

The cloud starts to come down like a curtain!

And walla! ( this is actually this morning- I forgot to take a last picture)
