In honor of our upcoming vacation I will be posting pictures of past vacations for the next few weeks. This year we’re headed to Canada for a taste of Europe close to home.
I had a renewed appreciation for water and lush landscape once I returned from the desert back to Ohio. The photos here are outside of St. George, Utah.
Phil and I especially enjoyed speaking to Sheri at the Split Rock Gallery who introduced us to beautiful art, high end architecture and Snow Canyon.
American Earth Rim
Leopard print hills are just
out in the Mohave desert
south and east of Las Vegas.
To the north of The Rim
sits St. George among steeples
of church and mountain.
Many times a year eighteen
galleries open to the night
to be closed by curfew.
Architects build on black lava rock
just beneath the peaking faces
of snow canyon
the quilted hills
diminish a climbing figure and crawl
slowly back into a covered earth.
Just miles away from the spotted hills
stained south of The Rim.
