This week’s Foto Friday Fun features images chosen by nine readers from my photo files including National Parks in celebration of the National Park Service Centennial. And you must know I’m a National Park junkie.
Mary Lou chose #8192. Although I love the Virgin River Canyon the drive into Zion from the east on SR9 provides some of the most awesome rocky views. I always feel like I’ve arrived upon seeing Checkerboard Mesa.
Pam and John chose #0819. I embrace monsoon and find it the time of making the most photos at Grand Canyon. This shot during late afternoon from the Grand Lodge 9-13-15.
Yogi chose #267. Grand Canyon shows so many moods and one of my favorites is when the canyon hides among the clouds as they drift around the temples like a game of peek-a-boo. Monsoon often brings this kind of scene taken 9-11-12.
Patti chose #827. Lake Powell is a sharp contrast to the surrounding desert sandstone. Although beautiful, one trip on the lake was enough for me back in 2011.
Sherry and David forgot to leave a number so they get the number of words in their last comment, #54. When visiting Death Valley in February for Super Bloom a day of stormy skies and snow on Telescope Peak told a story of winter even with the gorgeous flowers below.
Donna chose #217, one in a panorama. Toroweap is an awesome place to camp even if the drive is long and very bumpy.
Sallie thought she was too late to leave a number so I give her #50 for the number of words in her comment. A collection pile of artifacts that visitors left at Step House In Mesa Verde National Park. I’m glad people don’t take the artifacts but they should always be left exactly where found. As a Park Ranger at the park in 2005 I talked a lot about take only memories and photographs.

Regarding commenting problems. Seems part of the problem is Chrome but Internet Explorer seems to work. I don’t know why. Personally I use Firefox. Any suggestions are welcome.
