SkyWatch Friday & Farm Girl Friday

We were moving pairs up Moon Hill a week ago, and I had turned around to see where we had been, and I thought  this view was gorgeous. It's BLM you think they'd mind if I put a house here?!? I imagine the sunsets are spectacular.

With all the rain we've had, the grasses are growing pretty nicely...we could use more sun though!

Earlier that day, the rain and hail came down in buckets, the wind blew and now the sun came out like nothing ever happened...of course! The dark clouds ahead of us were from the squall that had just past over us a few minutes before. We were thankful for the sunshine~

Want to see more views of the sky from around the world? Check out SkyWatch Friday!

Join the blog hop with Farm Girl Friday too!

Beautiful, but I kinda like the view in the second one better! Someone was having fun over in the right of the picture ;)

One the things on my "bucket list" is to actually be involved in the moving and herding on a real working ranch. You're living my dream, how cool is that! Neat pictures. Enjoy our sunshine while it lasts!

So beautiful up there. If I ever get tired of the heat, that's where I'm going to move. It's picture perfect! Love the wide open spaces. I think it feeds the soul.

Beautiful panarama shot..:-)

The weather has been crazy.
yet...there is something quite spectacularily (did I even spell that right?) beautiful about a storm.
I love the sound of rain.
I love the fresh smell of rain.

Yet...I am longing for some heat and sunshine.
