This week’s Foto Friday Fun features 8 images chosen by readers from my photo archives. Our meme number for this week is 1207. Please join in by digging into your archives and sharing a story. And check out the other posts linked to the Foto Friday Fun meme. It’s a randomly Fun way to share.
Sherry chose #1207, a place I’m sure she’d like to visit but not in Ruby. The Cottonwood Canyon road can be a challenge, especially under wet conditions. Roads are few and mostly in poor condition in the Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument. Yet with a jeep we explored along this creek filled canyon with towering sandstone cliffs and little side canyons.
Diane chose #1888 for a view of the Drakensburg Mountains during a 2010 hike in South Africa. I was thrilled to be backpacking into this majestic landscape with a bonus having John as a guide, son to fellow blogger Jo.
Sallie chose #02, “Cuz I’m earlier than usual in commenting.” Talk about getting comments, how could you not. Yet the “Big Q”, as some call Quartzsite, Arizona, is full of characters worthy of comment. In 2005 I was selling at a flea market in nearby Vicksburg and did a double take at this while visiting Q. And yes, there really is a bull sticking his head out the other window.
Elaine chose #56, a poor quality photo from my 1983 Grand Opening after buying the yarn shop in Tonasket, Washington. This gal demonstrated her art of hot spun glass, one of the many arts and crafts sold on consignment in the store. I practiced stained glass while learning to crochet and knit. Fun times.
Yogi had random dot org choose #6036. Although Tsitsikamma National Park offers plenty of hiking opportunities, a few I’ve followed, I seem to spend a lot of time just sitting and watching the waves. Plus whatever else flies into view.
Bibi chose #3630, “the amount of dinars I spent yesterday on meds for this blasted cold. (about $40)” She needs to get someplace warm like summer in Kruger National Park where I saw these Blacksmith Plovers and Egyptian Geese during my February 2014 visit to South Africa. Hope you’re feeling better.
Jonker chose #4567. Last week he helped me identify what I had called Meerkats in his back yard Addo Elephant National Park when they were actually Yellow Mongoose. Thank you. This week, I’m sure he gets two lions. A mated pair in fact. They were resting between time. And I have video to prove it.
Melissa also used random dot org to choose #1613. I think this particular view across Grand Canyon helps put distances in perspective. From the Widforss Trail on the North Rim the distant San Francisco Peaks stand over 60 miles away, the South Rim about 11 miles, the Deva Temple in the middle maybe 4 miles, Oza Butte to the right about 2 miles, and I live on top to the left. All guestimates as the raven flies. BTW, Widforss Trail is a spectacular 10 mile round trip hike to yet another view of the canyon.
My choice this week just didn’t seem to get into yesterday’s post about the Columbia River Gorge. I think these are Big Leaf Maple leaves. Makes a nice carpet.
