A to Z challenge – U is for….

Mexican hat
How long before this hat tips over...
Monument valley. You knew that!
More monument valley
In search of rainbow bridge ...
House boats lined up for the start of peak holiday season and the not very attractive power station on the horizon
Through the waters of lake Powell

People help to give some perspective to this amazing feature


The Letter U is an easy one for my challenge covering mainly (but not exclusively) the south west States. California’s Death Valley crept in (well it is very near some SW states borders 🙂

Utah, one the five south west States- Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, Nevada, Utah – has some of the most memorable national parks in the whole of the south west. I hope that you agree with me that these just take your breath away!

hi! i am Anne (hence vANNilla) - two 'N's autocorrect WILL autocorrect - grrrrrr I can most often be found cooking up a storm in the kitchen,(with my trusty thermomix) behind a camera or a kindle. If you are a traveller/photographer my bog is @vannilla https://vannillarock.wordpress.com If you have come as a baker my blog is http://vannillarock.com i studied economics in Edinburgh in the early 70's; now retired from a day job, on paper i have plenty of time to explore the blogosphere and enjoy the shared experiences of others. like every other retiree i know we wonder how we fitted in a day job. I split my time between Guernsey,. In the Channel Islands -a 20-odd square mile island with 60thousand+ inhabitants- and Phoenix, Arizona. The mix is perfect- the former is beautiful but attacks of cabin fever are never too far away. Arizona, on the other hand IS king of the open road and has THE biggest bluest sky EVER. my blogs revolve around baking (vannillarock) and photography/travel if you like what you see please do start a conversation :)
