ABC WEDNESDAY LETTER " U "



Again ABC Wednesday rolls around. Today's letter is " U ".
I'm calling this weeks theme,
UNIQUE and UNUSUAL.
The UNEVEN terrain of the Nevada park called the
Valley of Fire just begs one to USE their imagination.



The UMBER and red rock formations have remained
UNCHANGED for thousands of years.
I love the UNCANNY animals I discovered while at the park.



The ULTIMATE in UNBELIEVABLE rock sculptures is
this vintage car riding down the cliff.
The UNRELENTING winds and rain have created quite
a sight.
This is exactly as we saw it.
You have got to admit that it is both UNUSUAL and
UNIQUE.



75 steps went UP the cliffside so we could see these amazing
petroglyphs.
No one is sure what they mean but the Indians must have
thought they were important to climb UPWARDS so far.
I URGE you to visit my ABC link on the sidebar to see
what others have posted for the letter " U ".
