    Nice shot! You’re a very talented photographer. Keep up the good work!!!

    You’re making me think about D70s…mmmmm.

  • Gretchen

    All I want for Christmas is my Nikon D70, a Nikon D70……..

    Excellent shot! You really have an incredible eye.

  • Dez

    Since I started reading your site, and more specifically, since you all moved back to the homeland to breed, I have remarked at least five times that I would like to visit Utah. The husband is all, WTF? but I think I’m up to five more times this week.

    Utah is purty.

    And the Utah Department of Tourism should get over (around?) the fact that you’re a Recovering Mormon and hire your ass, because I think all your readers now want to come crash and Chez Blurbdoocery and play with Chuck and Leta and see the pretty country.

    So there.

    The clouds look good enough to eat. So does everything else. :)

    Another excellent shot, Heather.

    If anybody needs me, I’ll be out this afternoon looking for a sugar daddy who will buy me that camera.

    Are objects in the mirror REALLY closer than they appear?

    That’s a beautiful picture. =)

  • Shelly-Bo

    Is that real, it’s friggin beautiful. Wow. My homegirl lives in Utah and of course she’s a Mormon, maybe i should visit.

    Your photos are just breathtaking! The scenery is so beautiful. You have such a good eye for photography! Thanks so much for sharing your talent with us!

    i spent a week travelling around utah with my uncle and cousins and we never, ever saw anything that even slightly resembled the beauty you’ve been displaying these past few days. i don’t know where you find these places, but good job.

    You have a great perspective on things! Oh, and I agree 100% with what Dez(1) said. lol

  • brent

    your hands look huge!

  • Sue from Ohio

    That’s too cool!

    Hee. And hee! It’s gorgeous landscape, and of course you, Heather, have no right to be so thin within a year of having a baby. But the Cheeto hands truly made me laugh. My younger son, 21 months, is commonly known as Cheeto Boy, and everything in my life has been climbed on and smeared with Cheeto hands by him and his big brother.

    Tell your sister there is a new sort of Cheetos, White Cheddar Cheetos, I learned about on one of my mommy mailgroups. I am insanely excited about these Cheetos because not only are they more “natural”, they do not contain the orange Cheeto dye which is fatal to all furniture, minivan upholstery and Mommy’s Lucky jeans.

    Come to think about it, that landscape you’re driving through is almost Cheeto-colored.

    I want to live there. Do they have Starbucks in Uah?

    This one is my favorite road trip shot so far.

    Hey! you stole my idea.

    Your backround is way more awesome than mine is. But then again, I live in a city and you live in a beautiful part of the country.

    mmmmm…. cheetos

  • http://gretchenb.tripod.com/mrbaby/ Gretchen C.

    Daniel: I wouldn’t assume they have anything in Utah. My adult daughter moved to Salt Lake for three months, and the beer is something like $20 a twelve-pack, plus I am here to tell you that Wasatch Brewery hefeweisen completely sucks. I had to double-check to confirm I was not drinking actual urine.

    There’s a way to deal with that problem…

    “GET OFF MY BED WITH THE CHEETOH HANDS!”

    Southern accent aside, that sentence is so rhythmic and downright IAMBIC… it sounds like it belongs in the middle of a Shakespeare play. Either that of it could be something that “Andre3000″ shouts out during the break of some hip-hip song.

    Aaaaaahhhhh, I keep wanting a D70 now. Or I’d be happy with a D100 too. :) Those are what we use in our photojournalism classes and I am sooooo in love. Want want want teh pritty camera!!! :D

  • http://www.mirrorproject.com/mirror/recent/?id=25856 Patty

    Your picture reminds me of one that my 5 year old took of himself in a rear view mirror. The link is to “The Mirror Project” where I submitted his picture. I’ll feel special if you submit yours too!

    By the way, thanks for posting every day. When I come home from work I check my email, then Dooce.

  • http://lalawawa.blogspot.com Lauren

    I’m just curious if ALL the trees in Utah are yellow or are you just enamoured?
    Love it, as usual. Kinda tired of suckin up though.

  • http://www.threekidcircus.blogspot.com Jenny

    Great shot!

  • http://www.digitalcatharsis.com The Mighty Jimbo

    it looks like laurie from trading spaces decorated utah.

    hmmm…how about…i know! yellow!

  • http://www.partofthatworld.com Becca

    I never knew Utah was so pretty, or maybe it’s just your talent in photography.

  • http://www.infinitepink.com Christine

    Congratulations! You’re not a vampire! :D

  • Tracy (not that one)

    Digging this picture – great composition, yet again. You two must have been debating all weekend over whose turn it was to use the D70. =) It’d be cool to eventually see all of the pics in a photo essay like the ones you’ve done in the past.

  • Heather

    I can vouch for Utah being so pretty. We went skiing in Park City a few years ago, and…WOW! But still, dooce is a really talented photographer and she’s making me want a Nikon D70. I always thought I was a Canon girl, too.

  • http://jelene.modblog.com jelene

    i like how poster #17 spams your comments by posting the url of his own blog.

    i want a nikon d70!!!!

  • Jeff C.

    Wow! Once again, i love the eye you have for framing things. Keep up the good work.

  • http://shyeyes.org shy

    okay… i’m inlove with this photo!

  • http://moxiemoron.diaryland.com Moxie

    Looks as though the twins wiped their cheeto hands all over the countryside.

  • Lauren

    The landscape looks like a painting; it doesn’t look real at all. Beautiful work.

  • http://bytchinny.typepad.com BytchInNY

    wow… the scenery behind the side view mirror almost looks fake. did you purposely unfocus everything but the sideview a little or was that lucky? either way it’s a great shot.

  • http://www.individualism.ro/ Gabriel Mihalache

    Hi! Very nice shot! Nice focus!

    I’ve been reading your site for some weeks now and I’m hooked. I like your perspective, the kind seldom found on the net.

    Keep up the good blogging!

  • http://honestmom.blogspot.com/ Lorie

    Yes, huge hands! But they aren’t scary like Bryce Dallas Howard’s hands in “The Village” hehehe

  • Caroline Streeter

    You’ve outdone yourself, nice pic. Great composition.

  • http://www.xanga.com/littlegilraen Dara

    Wow!!! Lovely shot, I must say. Utah seems sooooooo purdy! Me wanr ro visit some time. Yes, yes.

  • http://www.secondnegative.com Greg

    Very cool. I’ve only seen Utah through your photos and on Everwood, but it looks beautiful.

    If the population didn’t vote Republican at about an 80% clip, I’d consider moving there.

  • http://www.mirrorproject.com heather

    mee-roar-prau-jeckt!

  • Sue F.O (UFO–SueFO SueFromOhio-get it??!?!)

    YES, my brain had a fart and I ‘rambled’ on a new name…ANYWHO, Hez (that’s what we call girls named Heather around here…)I went on a road trip with the fam today and, since you’re such an inspiration to us, took some ‘shots’ of Autumn foliage in Ohio…I’ll email them to you so you can see the wonderful ‘golds/yellows’ here AKA cornfields and soy bean fields..HAHA I slipped in a couple ‘trees’ for jollies..look for them in a day or two…

  • Kari

    Is that Dixie National Forest in southern Utah? Or is that from your recent trip to Park City?

    Crikey, it’s gorgeous!!

  • http://battybeyond.blogspot.com Tammy

    Oh my goodness. You have me almost convinced to move there.

  • Sophie

    I’ve been to several parts of Utah (I go once a year for business, and I’ve had a couple of fantastic camping/hiking trips in national parks there) and I’ve never seen a single inch of the state that wasn’t ridiculously pretty. It even looks fabulous from the air as I fly into SLC.

    Yes, there are plenty of Starbucks there, and many other coffee places as well.

  • http://www.shanny.blogspot.com Shannon

    That picture is so gorgeous it looks like you pulled up in front of a giant painting, it’s almost too pretty to be real.
