This week’s Foto Friday Fun features 8 images chosen by readers from my photo archives. I love sharing these memories as photos are drawn up from my past.
Cheryl chose #421, “It’s the address of the house I grew up in in Indianapolis.” I also grew up in the Midwest so originally thought that the white barked trees growing in the Southwest were Birch. However now we both live here so know that these white trees are Aspen. And in the fall the leaves turn to gold.
Sherry chose #119 and as a hiker I think she’ll appreciate seeing me backpacking in the depths of Grand Canyon. This was my second rim-to-rim which easier than the first time. Sure glad I experienced this while I still could.
Bibi chose #523, “today’s date.” Two weeks from that day’s date she’ll be visiting me at the North Rim. So very excited and look forward to showing her around. Of course I wish I could also take her to NOAH Thrift Store because she likes shopping second-hand like I do, but we won’t make it to Prescott, Arizona. Or to the bottom of Grand Canyon like the previous photo.
Bo chose #1734, “the number of miles between here and home.” And I’m glad to say she finally made it there. I could easily call the Drakensburgs home or at least hike there again someday even if I couldn’t live under the grasses like this lizard.
Diane chose #9696 and this may be something she’s seen at Pilanesberg Game Reserve in South Africa. I wanted to go up in one REALLY bad, but couldn’t justify the $400 for an hour’s ride. Maybe somewhere else because hot air ballooning is on my list.
Elaine chose #555 and I’ll bet she’s glad not to be seeing snow around her Alaska home. Although there’s none on the ground here right now this photo was taken May 24, 2010. Anything is possible at 8200 feet.
Sallie chose #2614, “because we have plans for that date that I will be blogging about if all goes well.” I’m still waiting to hear about this and hoping I don’t have to wait geologic time like this this exposure of cliff faces along the road to Toroweap, an iconic view of the Colorado River.
My choice this week picked while labeling photos from the Kgalagadi National Park. Was rather warm when we arrived and these were the first wildlife seen. Five lions were resting in the shade of this not overly large bush.

I have so many photos to share from this recent journey in South Africa. So as I label them I’ll post every 100th image on the Geogypsy Facebook page where you can follow along.
