Skywatch Friday - Sunrise at Mesa Verde


Tom and I arose before sunrise to sip tea on the balcony while we awaited the sunrise over the mystical, beautiful land of the Anasazi Indians in Mesa Verde, Arizona. We were not disappointed. We were joined by rabbits, deer, chipmunks, yellow flowers, and tiny yellow birds. I remember the morning air as cool and pungent, full of the scents of sage and other desert aromas. I'll never forget it!

You had plenty of good company for your morning vigil. That's a wonderful sunrise. It must have been lovely and exciting to be at the ready with the camera, a cuppa, and companions!

God bless, and thanks for stopping by.

What a nice surprise this must be with all your local friends with you that morning. It is a nice sunrise and all the more nicer with the animals and pretty flowers.
