hello west!

8.02.2010

flying home back out to the west was quite the extravaganza which involved the plane turning around mid-air, and second try to get to detroit, sleeping in a dumpy hotel in detroit, one more layover, and finally back home to california only 18 hours before ceej returned home from the philippines. so glad to be home with ceej.
saturday we drove through the sierras, through the beautiful nevada desert, and over the salt flats to our favorite home. i was giddy as we got to witness the most amazing lightning storm over the salt flats--you could see the lightning from its source in the clouds all the way to its striking point on the desert ground. to the left of the storm was an orange moon rising, lighting clouds with silver. and to the right of the storm, the milky way. so much going on in one night sky. oh, how i love the west! happy to be here with family and friends in my mountain desert.
