It's a good thing we didn't believe them when they said it would be a nice day on Sunday and rain only on Saturday and Monday (plus through the rest of the week)...we didn't believe the Sunday part anyway. Here is what it looked like across the valley Sunday afternoon. This is the south end of the valley while it is awash in a cloud burst.
And this is the center of the valley (if the camera was a bit better you might be able to see the Great Salt Lake just to the right of the mountain).
And this is a picture of downtown Salt Lake City...it looks teeny, tiny but it isn' t as far away as it looks.
Oh, look! Blue sky! Patches of blue is what we had off and on all day (and it was chilly burrr, cold). But, we had sunshine in our hearts as we spent the day with our dearest friends, Camille and her family, my Swan family. We all joined in the preparation of a delicious breakfast while just being together. Here is the delightful gang of Camille, her two handsome sons, Josh and Zach, Zach's beautiful wife Chantel , and the precocious and charming, Miss Aspen Dawn. She is ever busy and full of joy and life...the light of her Gamma Cam's life. It was a lovely day and perfect because we were together.
Smith and I did make a quick trip up the canyon afterwards, just to see how much water was making its way down from the slowly melting snow-pack. Here are the peaks above where we stopped to take pictures of the stream. The streams are flowing rapidly and if we have too much rain or it heats up too quickly we could have some flooding along the banks. Below is Big Cottonwood Creek which flows from the canyon, through the valley, not far from our home (we are not in danger) towards the Great Salt Lake. We have our fingers crossed for those in harms way.
Well, now that I've most likely eaten up my bandwidth for the month with all the pictures...happy Monday all. I'm off to read up on the Maryland reports.
