A scenic byway is a specially designated road that travels through an area of natural or cultural beauty. You can drive on through your life as fast as you can, more focused on the destination than the journey. Or you can choose to be present and revel in the journey that is life. I choose the latter. Eyes wide open and marveling at the beauty that is everywhere all the time - this is My Scenic Byway.

Mountains and Sky
I am new to Salt Lake City (only here since June). I am continuously amazed by the beauty of the sky and the mountains here. It is very different from the east coast where I lived. The sky is so huge here. The view so expansive. The weather changing all the time, creating amazing clouds and light. Last night a storm raged through here. All night long. Thunder and lightening and crazy rain. We woke up this morning to see the first dusting of snow on the mountains. Driving to the grocery store this afternoon, the clouds were crazy. I worry I am going to drive off the road one day gaping in amazement at these mountains and this sky.
