Walkabout Wednesday – More art, travels and coffee

Today I’m taking us back to River Rock Roasters in Laverkin, Utah. We saw examples of tabletop art last week, and today we’ll take another look.

Big Whirlygigs

Heading into the building, we are greeted by some fun whirlygig wind sculptures. Fascinating to watch and really appropriate for an area where the wind blows every day. The adjacent town, just about a mile south is named “Hurricane” for good reason.

Acrylic resin pour art

The place is half coffee shop, half art gallery for local artists. Nearly everything on the walls is “for sale.” Here two epoxy pour paintings. They reflect light very well (see the ceiling light in the “blue marble”) and have intricate designs and depth.

Enough solitude

And, of course a quote from Royden Card a favorite local artist

Moon in daytime over the Virgin River

Heading out, we must stop and admire the view. I always make it a point to admire a daytime moon and in the crystal clear skies of southern Utah it’s so worth it.

View from I-15

And so, we head on out, leaving the River Rock Roasting Company behind as we resume our travel.

Virgin River Gorge wall

Passing through the Virgin River Gorge the walls of the gorge are massive and steep, prime public land for rock climbers. Captured this little slice of gorge wall looking out of the car window as we went by at 60 mph. 😉

Linking up to Marsha’s PPAC # 55 do pop over and enjoy a bit of horsing around. 🙂

Til next time

  1. Amazing views and pictures – Thanks for the linkup. Those metal wind art whirlygigs are my favorite. Have you been to Sedona to the Tlaquepaque Shopping Mall? They have a field of them. BTW, if you happen to be in Prescott on Sept. 15, a small group of bloggers is meeting up. Let me know if you might be interested.

    1. I haven’t been to Sedona in so long, our planned 2020 trip got sidetracked and the 2021 reschedule fell through after the holy hand grenade of hail storms. I love the idea of a meet up. We hope to be out west this year to hook up with my brothers. I’d be interested if I can work out the timing. 😊
