Skywatch Friday # 48

Clouds rolling into the Petit Jean River Valley. March 11, 2009.

This is my post for Skywatch Friday, a meme for sharing views of the sky from all over the world.  Last week many people shared their view of the sky.  To see more, or to join and share your own photos of the sky, click HERE.

While we were in Arkansas in March, Betsy and I visited Mount Magazine State Park on a dreary rainy day.  Mount Magazine has many wonderful views, several good hiking trails which we enjoy, and a wonderful restaurant that serves delicious lunches.

As we were getting ready to head back down the mountain we stopped at an overlook of the Petit Jean River Valley.  The sky was gray and dull looking, but there were clouds rolling over the mountains on the other side of the valley.  Even though the sky is indistinct, I like this picture anyway.

    You DO have the BEST vistas of wide open landscapes and skies to share! Glad you were able to connect with friends. My Sky Watch is at Sacred Ruminations, but I also shared skies at Small Reflections this week … along with a bit of Haiku. I’ve not had time to visit until today however, so I’m doing what I can to catch up a bit. Hope all’s well with you and Betsy ;–)
    Hugs and blessings,

    Hi George,
    I like the patchwork quality to the landscape and the clouds pouring over the mountains.
