Magnificent Mountains…

 

When it comes to the Utah mountains in Fall. . .

a picture is worth a thousand words!

These pictures were all taken just right outside my own door.

I love the contrast of the Fall colors with the snow topped mountains behind my home.

I like how this pic showed the wheat grains growing in the field across the way.

This barn is located behind our home.

This last week the trees have all turned brilliant red, yellow, and orange.

If you ask me, when it comes to beautiful Fall color, there’s no place like home!

Happy Fall!

Oh Wow what a beautiful country you live in. I love those red fall colours,Fabulous

Andrea said...

Hello Jann, you certainly have the best views in the world! These views i wouldn't be able to see in this lifetime, snowcapped mountains I only saw once in Turkey. And you have a very big beautiful house, oh am so envious. Some people are really lucky in this life. I wonder why you chose to live in that area, seems like so far away, but very, very lovely. LOL.

Stunning view from you home. I would always be sitting out the back looking at the mountains. Our fall colour is just about over, only a few coloured leaves left hanging lonely on the branches.

Light and Voices said...

Fall is my favorite time of year. Lovely view from your home. Lucky you!

Gorgeous color, Jann!

Joanne said...

Holy Moly! What a gorgeous view! I'd better not show these pics to my hubby or else he'd want to move. The same thing happened when we were at my doctors appointment...there was a beautiful picture of Wyoming and that's all she wrote....he talked about Wyoming for a month! The trees here haven't really turned full color, but they are getting there. Beautiful beautiful pictures!
Blessings, Joanne

I am in awe! So, so beautiful! I wish I could look out on something so gorgeous right from my back door -- we just don't experience the beautiful change of colors here in Texas. But now I can look at yours!
Happy Rednesday!

DON’T LET THAT SCARLET GO TO YOUR HEAD

Don’t let that scarlet go to your head!
Be very glad you haven’t been bled!
Give thanks for the colors dear to your heart:
Carmine and cherry and wine— a good start!

What glorious views you have!

This is absolutely stunning and your home is beautiful.

I am always enchanted by weathered old wood and that barn is no exception!

Thanks for a lovely Autumn link.

Hi Jann,

What a stunning view, those mountains are just breathtaking and that you get to enjoy them all year long through every season, just fabulous!!!
Your home is gorgeous, love the covered porch! I love all of your exterior colours and finishing details... But what a backdrop :0)
You are absolutely right, Utah is the place to be for fall...
Thank you for your lovely comments on my home!
All the Best,
Christine

Cheryl D. said...

I love your house! It's gorgeous! The fall colors are amazing! I can't believe all the snow by your house already! You must have very long winters there!

Lola said...

Me again!

Thank you for stopping by with such a nice comment!

If you like Mary Higgins Clark, I'm sure you'd enjoy my novels too ('Soul Stealer' & 'The De Clerambault Code' - female protagonists caught up in a mystery and against the odds in both).

Hope you're having a great weekend,

Lola:)

PS Independent reader reviews of both books on Amazon UK (link on my blog sidebar) are also worth looking at!

Betsy said...

Wow! What beautiful scenery. What a joy it must be to look out your window and see what you see! The pictures are gorgeous.

Vicki/Jake said...

I love our Autumns too, only I'm on the desert and we don't have a much here. Was up Park City way not long ago and saw the beauty there. You live in a great area to see all the colors too. Thanks for sharing:)

Rettabug said...

SPECTACULAR! Both the view & your lovely home!
You are blessed, Jann & I thank you for sharing those blessings with all of us.
That barn photo could be in a magazine!

fondly,
Rett
