Love these two.  Does the rock formation have a name?  The part on the left side reminds me of a pack of dogs.

I can't say where it is - It was on an archaeological survey and had some native american burials close.. but it was beautiful there.

Oh wow, grammaB and ruthbru, lovely pictures.  Warms my soul and reminds me I need to do some more Christmas baking.  I haven't baked in years and for some reason this year I'm going crazy with the baking.  Thought I would do a tray of goodies to take to DD's as my twins took over Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners three years ago.  One of them asked if I would do a cake and I asked her if she wanted a Happy Birthday Baby Jesus cake as I did them years ago to help them remember that Christmas is about the birth of Jesus.  She got real excited and gave me a big YES!

Wishing all the ladies here a wonderful holiday season and please be safe in your travels.

Speaking of my photos - here are a couple of my favorite "Above the Clouds" photos. I work from my computer at home and these photos are right outside my windows in the morning and evenings.
