  1. I love mountains and scenes like this. I’m always amazed at what we see when we stop a simple scene with a lens.

  2. One look at that photo and I said to myself, “That looks just like SLO!” Gorgeous!

    Thanks so much for linking up!

  3. All of your pictures are just stunning Diana.
    Have a blessed Sunday!

  4. Beautiful Diana!

  5. What a lovely view along the way to your spiritual retreat. The retreat must have been dessert, after this view.


  6. Love the terrain in California and Arizona. Of course this girl that lives on the souteast coast calls Phoenix home. You bring back good memories.

  7. Love those hills!

  8. Psalms 121: i lift up my eyes to the hills! 🙂 Thanks you for blessing me!

  9. Beauty. It. You.

  10. I didn’t get to wish you a Happy Thanksgiving on time… but I’m very thankful for you and oh, so glad we got to meet! Hug. =)
