Talkin' About Thursday ~ At The Bottom

Today is Talkin' About Thursday over at My Cup 2 Yours!  The topic is to share a nature photo you took and tell the story behind it.  I was oh so tempted to share my most fascinating nature photo - a hawk eating a dove on our back fence - but I decided to spare you, LOL!  :)

We have been to many beautiful places in nature, but this pic is one of my faves:
That's my son in the pic and I'm sort of cheating because my hubs actually snapped this photo.  I love how the photo shows just how small we are compared to the hugeness of God's wonderful creation!

This particular adventure - hiking up a river in a narrow canyon in Zion National Park (Utah) - was one of our favorite things we've done.  On that same trip we saw the absolutely amazing Grand Canyon, the closer view of interesting formations of Bryce Canyon, and then got to experience being at the bottom of canyons in Zion.  You can see more pics from this River walk if you're interested.

Thanks for letting me share a little nature with you today!  I hope you enjoyed it (or would you rather have seen the hawk - HA)!

Don't forget to check out more nature photos and link up your own with my friend Genny at My Cup 2 Yours today!

Oh - and Chocolate Friday is finally back tomorrow - yay!  Link up your chocolate posts!

Have a terrific day friends!


  1. Amazing photo! I remember visiting the Rocky Mountains when I was 15 years old and feeling so small next to just the foothills of the mountains. It is humbling to know how great our God is!

  2. I love that picture!

    Big nature is as close as your front yard or in your case Utah size hugs to you!

    Have a fabulous day my friend.
    Love ya!

  3. I have only seen the Grand Canyon from above. Well, we went partway down, as far as a 5-y-o (me) could walk and still walk back out. Far enough to hear the echoes. I dream of experiencing these canyons for real someday.

  4. Wow! That's fantastic! I wanna go there!!!! :)

  5. That's an awesome shot! Makes me want to visit, and I'm sure my hubby will too. The hawk eating dove pic sounds intriguing...

  6. That is just gorgeous, Lisa! Thanks for linking up! And thanks for sparing us the hawk photo... Lol!

  7. What a display of the splendor and majesty of God's creation!
