Broken desert glass

Broken desert glass

The photo prompt from The Daily post this week is Broken. As soon as I saw this, I knew exactly what I was going to photograph.

When we are in the desert, I love to find old stuff. Old cans, old glass, broken or not. I have an old glass bottle that has some broken glass pieces I have collected. I really love finding the old purple desert glass, that’s my favorite. But I will pick up other colors too.

Friday, I commandeered the Big-Ass truck so the dogs and I could go walking someplace different. I drove to Provo Canyon because there is a nice walking, biking path there that goes along the river. A little water therapy sounded good, and it would be a good walk for the dogs. The biggest downfall of this path is the highway is also pretty close, and pretty noisy.

It had obviously been raining in the canyon that morning, and was still cloudy and cold. After about a mile or so, I saw a small dirt trail that headed off the main path. Ever on the search for something to photograph, I headed into the trees.

This part of Utah has had rain for about a month solid now. Everything is super green,  and the plants are loving it. And these guys too. I have never seen so many snails out and moving around.

After Before Friday-week 50

After Before Friday-week 50

On the way to the San Rafael swell, we passed through the small town of Salina, Utah. It’s just a little podunk town on the way to somewhere.

When we were headed down, this caught my eye but we couldn’t stop. On the way back north, I told Al he needed to stop so I could get a photo. I love these old time advertisements on the side of buildings. Sadly, you just don’t see very many anymore. This one looked like it had been covered up by a building, or maybe just bricked over. I would like to think this would be preserved, but I doubt it very much.

It was hard to get a clear shot because there was a tall wood fence. This is my after edits photo.
