More from Moab

Blue skies and red rock.....
Balancing Rock.....crazy isn't it? 

Chad and Abbie....my faithful helpers and side kicks! :-)


The double windows.

John Wesley Wolfe settled here in the late 1800's with his oldest son Fred.  A nagging leg injury from the Civil War prompted him to move west to a drier climate.  They built a one room cabin and a corral.  For more than a decade they lived alone on this small ranch.

A root cellar.


Petroglyphs that date between AD 1650 and 1850.
My new Crossings quilt, finally kitted and on my web site.
Tomorrow I will share photos from my classes.
