Majestic and glorious!
Wishing you and your family a new year blessed with peace, joy, prosperity, good health and much, much love.

I LOVE that celestial blue! It demands equal attention with the purple, snow-sugared mountains and the brilliant green foliage that anchors the view.

A question... where were YOU when you took this shot?

I like how you've framed the trees to match the curvature of the mountain peaks with the Pasadena City Hall peaking up to the right of the tree in the middle. Those mountains are the view that easterners got to see during the Rose Parade and Rose Bowl. Get ready - they're coming!

Suddenly I feel like yodeling! So inspirational, so Sound of Musicish. So beautiful My puny little ol' distant hills would be jealous. How nice for Little Bit to grow up in these surroundings.

When I watched the Rose Parade on tv, I was so glad to see how clear it was and that I could view the mountains smog free.

What a majestic scene.

I want to hear Dixie yodel.

You can't take enough pictures of the mighty San Gabriels.

To altadenahiker:

Turn up the volume:

O ho lay dee odl lee o, o ho lay dee odl ay
O ho lay dee odl lee o, lay dee odl lee o lay

(A bit of imagination is required)

Great yodeling Dixie Jane!!! My Swiss grandparents would be proud of you!!! When they settled here in Glendale, they originally built a little mountain cabin (not far from where I live now) which was their little swiss cabin in the mountains...it probably took them all afternoon to drive up here in their model t from Silver Lake where they originally lived. Later, they built a small California Craftsman on the same lot, and that's where I grew up!!!

to answer Yakpate, I believe Laurie was on Via Del Rey for this beautiful shot.

I surprised Jim a couple of times by yodelling - along with Emmy Lou. It took a couple of wine for me to get into it.

altadenahiker said...

Loud and clear, Dixie.

Laurie said...

You guys are too great!

I'm feeling the urge to yodel myself...

Til tomorrow!
