Please link in any day this week by digging into your archives and sharing a photo and story on your blog. Plus check out the other posts linked to the Foto Friday Fun meme.
Shane chose #2694, a piece of stormy sky which is one of four in a panorama. Thank goodness the rain held off on that 4th of July so we could have our annual water parade. This shot taken later in the afternoon from my RV window looking over Transept Canyon.
Diane chose #0072 hoping that James Bond will “pop up” in one of her choices. The long blasted exit tunnel at Oregon Caves National Monument kind of reminds me of a place James would be running for his life, though I never saw him while leading cave tours during 2006 when this shot was taken. Notice the door to keep outside air from entering this artificial opening in the cave.
Elaine chose #1313, a view from one of my many walks into the neighboring Weaver Mountains. This shot was taken in March of 2012, before the Yarnell fire changed the landscape drastically. I haven’t been up there since though I know there’s new growth.
Sherry chose #4680, a pair of female elephants seen in Kruger National Park, South Africa. Good chance this is Mom with one of her growing daughters as the females tend to band together with multiple generations in a herd. I could watch them forever.
My choice is a panoramic shot of the travesty called Lake Powell returning to river as years of drought prove the mistake of Glen Canyon Dam. Note the “bath tub ring” depicting over 100 feet (30 m) below full pool. I stopped at an overlook near Page on the way home from Kanab Sunday. I’m sure Lake Mead looks even worse at only 45 percent of its capacity. And don’t even get me started on what’s happening with water shortages in California.
