Hiatus in Paradise...

Hiatus in Paradise...  No progress yesterday, as we had friends visiting: Jim and Michelle B.  They arrived late on Sunday, and they'll be here through Wednesday morning.  Blogging will be light to non-existent :)

Sunday we all went to Angie's for a local style supper.  Yesterday we drove south from our home, through Paradise and Avon, then up and over the pass (on a four-wheel dirt road) to Liberty and Eden.  That was a beautiful drive.  It was overcast but not raining, and we traveled through lush greenery, lots of flowing water, and spring flowers.  The blue larkspur at around 6000' was my favorite.  In some places there were patches six feet or so across that were solid blue.  Michelle spotted a pair of Sandhill Cranes foraging in a meadow.  We also had a nice viewing of a blue heron, and a couple of does.

We went to the Red Iguana in Salt Lake City for our supper, and a fine meal was ours.  I'm still not hungry :) We're going to do some more driving in the mountains today, then we're headed to Maddox House for a BEEF dinner tonight!

While we were gone yesterday, we got another three tenths of an inch of rain.  The storm total (since last Thursday) now stands at 1.7 inches.  Woo hoo!  We're going to be driving past Porcupine Reservoir today – we're hoping it's full now, or nearly so...
