Wonderstruck by Whales

I watched a fabulous documentary  “A Life Among Whales” today. You can check it out here: I was really inspired. The whale songs really got to me. They are hauntingly beautiful.  I am so grateful for the miraculous world we live in, and as humans it’s imperative that we step up and protect it.

Here’s a sample of  a whale song.Enjoy!


Not A Painting

I was astounded when I realized that this picture was of a real place. The orange back ground is actually a very tall sand dune. There is nothing more spectacular than the beautiful world that we live in. Almost every time I go outside I get a little pang of gratitude in my heart for the wonders of nature. That is one of the many reasons that I know God is real and that he loves us. If there is no God then who is it that I want to thank so badly when I see things like this?


Weekend Campout at Dutchman’s Flat in American Fork Canyon

I went camping at Dutchman’s Flat with my sister and some friends from our ward over the weekend.  The weather was perfect, The scenery was spectacular, and it was great to make some good memories. This will probably end up being the last nice weekend this year.
