X: Countdown to Xanadu

The 60 day countdown has begun to visit our Xanadu, the Idaho ranch.

For those of you who have read some of my blog, you will know that our ranch in McCall is often featured in my posts. It is our heart home, and we spend every July there. Now that the countdown to vacation is only eight weeks, I’m filled with pleasurable anticipation. Let me show you what I’m looking forward to…

As I have practiced it, photography produces pleasure by simplicity. I see something special and show it to the camera. A picture is produced. The moment is held until someone sees it. Then it is theirs.

The wide open sky to feed the soul…


The small miracles everywhere I look in the woods and fields.

The dreamy walks around the land in the evenings.

The softly glowing sunsets through the trees.

And the joy that infuses Cooper the minute we get there.

Countdown 60 days … it will go by quickly as we plan what to pack in our trailer to take up. In a year we’ll be moving there for good (Tim’s retiring) and so we’ll take a pre-moving load this summer. How exciting!

Thank you for visiting. Your comments warm my heart and put a smile in my day.

    We will be living there in about a year. My husband is retiring next May and we’ll spend half the year on the ranch and the other half in a motor home in warmer climates. Thank you so much for visiting!

    Sounds and looks wonderful, no wonder you’re excited. Have you considered actually living there? Wrapping up my visits/comments for a-z, as I missed a few days of visiting 5 per letter while out of town. I am also continuing a-z in May blogging.
