As we made the long trip from Camp to Utah and Nevada towards Oregon we were greeted with some of the most astonishing cloud formations we had ever seen. The skies daily offered up a stunning mix of clouds and sun brightening everything around us. Reminding us that life has ups and downs and sunshine and rain but is ever resilient.
“Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky” ~ Rabindranath Tagore
At Bryce National Park a cloudy day rendered just enough sun and contrast to further enhance this awe-inspiring natural beauty.
The remote and endless roads of Nevada to Great Basin National Park brought with it a new set of clouds perched high above the hills.
“Keep your feet on the ground and your head in the clouds”
Oregon is famous for cloudy skies to be sure. But when they produce a sunset scene this spectacular you can almost forgive the weather.
We were happy to see clouds mixed with clear skies by the time we made it through the smoke that was California.
“Let’s build us a happy, little cloud that floats around the sky” Bob Ross
” Every cloud has a silver lining”
And, of course, Baja did not disappoint with the harsh arid landscape bringing with it some of the more amazing cloud formations we have ever witnessed.

As Christmas approaches and a new season is upon us, cheers to having a mix of both sun and clouds. We wish all of our friends around the world the happiest of holidays and blessings for a new year.
