Fun in Heber

Shannon and I drove up to Heber this morning, so I could make a couple of Thermofax screens at Timmie's. It felt a little cooler up in the mountains, it is bloody HOT here in the valley.

We stopped and had lunch at the local hamburger joint, Granny's. The hamburgersand fries are good, but the shakes are thick and yummy. And huge! Neither Shannon nor I could finish the shakes, and we got the 'mini' size. Yeah, right, mini.

I only have a couple of tiny holes to tape in one of the screens, and it shouldn't make any difference to the image. Right next to the barn where Timmie has the Thermofax, she has a big plot of culinary lavender. I couldn't resist sitting down and trying to get pictures of the bees on the lavender. A couple of them actually turned out pretty good!

We stopped at an overlook going home- there was lots of activity on Deer Creek Reservoir. Between the deep blue water, and the blue sky, the colors were intense.

That's Midway off in the distance, and the site for the sheepherding trials late this summer.

And, we got a good view of the backside of Mount Timpanogos.

Right now, it feels good to be in my air conditioned home, even if I am doing laundry and other mundane chores. Maybe later tonight I'll get the screens taped and ready to use.

I'm imagining what it must be like to stand there surrounded by the mountains and that beautiful body of water...takes my breath away just thinking about and looking at the photo!

Gorgeous pictures - what a landscape! Glad you've got a camera back in your hand. B&H is famous around here - probably the best source, so you did well.

Your dyed fabrics look great, as usual.
