This week’s Foto Friday Fun features 7 images chosen by readers from my photo archives. I love sharing these memories as photos are drawn up from my past.
Diane chose #356 and she is traveling around Spain and Portugal until July so may not see this for a while. This National Park Service raft on the Colorado River held a fellow Ranger who I’d dropped off at the Lee’s Ferry launch site then hurried to Navajo Bridge to get a shot of him going down river through Marble Canyon. Although I longed to be on this trip I have fond memories of rafting the lower Colorado the previous year.
Sherry chose #7778 and being she liked last weeks photo of elephants at Addo Elephant National Park this time she gets elephants and warthogs. Someday I hope to help her fulfill her dream of sitting for days and weeks watching elephants.
Bo chose #01 to “start at the very beginning.” I thought about showing her my newborn photo but instead she ends up with a spring view of my wheelestate with Carson who loved to play in the snow at Oregon Caves National Monument.
Jo chose #1305 which may remind her of Golden Gate Highlands not far from her South African home. But these sandstone bluffs are in Utah’s Cottonwood Canyon in the Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument.
Elaine chose #1024 which used to be the CB radio ‘10’ code for location. Everything was right about this location for a distant view across Kanab canyon while visiting Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in Kanab, an absolutely awesome facility.
Jonker chose #303. In South Africa where he lives there are some very interesting shaped trees like the Quiver Tree, but I’ll bet he hasn’t seen anything like the Ponderosa Pine, as we call it, Candelabra tree at the North Rim. Ponderosa Pines are usually one trunk, maybe with a ‘Y’ split typically caused by a lightning strike. My theory on this candelabra is the side branches all wanted to be a trunk. A panorama was needed to include at least 100 feet of this giant and it turned out a little distorted.
My choice this week from a recent trip to Zion National Park with Bibi who visited me at the North Rim last week. Us fellow bloggers clicked right away and had a great time touring Grand Canyon and Zion. Plus she didn’t even complain about sleeping on an airbed in my RV.
