This week’s Foto Friday Fun features 10 images chosen by readers from my photo files including wildlife and some history that shouldn’t be repeated.
Diane and Nigel chose #1108. A foggy Oregon day along the Columbia River Gorge still allowed a slight view from Crown Point looking up river, including a barge, along the Historic Columbia River Highway.
Donna chose #667. This clay hand-print on the sandstone wall of Buckskin Gulch slot canyon looked too fresh to be from ancient native people.
Jim and Diana chose #821, “the date of the eclipse with preparations at a fever pitch in central Oregon!” I’ll be watching at 74% eclipse at a hopefully uncrowded Marble View overlook near the North Rim in Arizona. But here I was watching birds, long-billed curlews, in southern Texas while packing Mom for the move to Arizona in 2011.
Sallie and Bill chose #1. One of the oldest photos I have, my dad during the 1940s and WWII, a war against Nazism. I hope that no one has to fight against that again. I still have his Ike jacket.
Sherry and David chose #1127. From the same November 2014 trip to the Pacific North West as the first photo. Latourell Falls framed by fall colors in Guy W Talbot State Park along the Columbia River Highway, Oregon.
Patti and Abi chose #400. Those tiny dots are mule deer on one of the many meadows you drive through on Highway 67 to the North Rim Grand Canyon.
Yogi chose #4999. Looking into the inner canyon from the Hermit Road on the South Rim Grand Canyon. Do you see the Colorado River?
Jodee and Bill chose #2484. Not all zebras look alike. Each individual has different markings and then there’s Burchell’s and Mountain Zebras which are different too. Plus young ones like this often take a while to turn black.
Jeff chose #1862, “the year President Lincoln signed both the Homestead Act and the Emaciation Proclamation.” Originally built in 1862, the Alonzo Russell home, severely damaged by years of vandalism and weather, was restored in 2004. Don’t know if it was part of the Homestead Act, but it along with a few other buildings can be seen in historic Grafton with Zion National Park in the background.
