This week’s Foto Friday Fun features 10 images chosen by readers from my photo archives. Our meme number for this week is 0078. 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.
Diane chose #0078 from last fall at the North Rim. Young aspen sprout up amongst the remains of trunks from the 2000 Outlet Fire. The remaining fir and pine will slowly reseed this hillside in the natural cycle of forest succession.
Ann chose #993, one of my favorite backyard walks into the Weaver Mountains before the 2013 Yarnell Hill Fire. The balancing granitic boulders remind me a lot of Joshua Tree National Park.
Lori Ann chose #24. Back in 2005 I met a man at a rock and gem show and later went with him up into the La Plata Mountains in Colorado on one of the wildest rides to the portal of the Bessie G Mine. Story he told was the original prospector dug all the way through the mountain and would hang a lantern on the eastern portal so his wife, Bessie, could see it from the widow walk on their house in Durango and know he’d arrived safely.
Sherry forgot her number this week so I chose #36 for the amount of words in her comment. While visiting San Felipe Mexico with Darlene back in 2005 our host drove us along a bumpy road to Puerto Cito where we soaked in hot springs at the edge of the Sea of Cortez. Have to time it right so the tide mixes with the thermal waters.
Cheryl chose #1515, the date and year. The date and year of this shot was October 29, 2011. As Halloween approached someone added an effigy to the scaffold at this crumbling movie set along the Johnson Canyon Road. Many old westerns were filmed in the area surrounding Kanab, Utah.
Sallie chose #9823, a leopard up a tree. Joan and I were out driving in Pilanesberg Game Reserve and a couple vehicles were stopped as they’d seen a leopard around but then it disappeared and the cars left. We kept looking and caught a couple glimpses in the tall grass before the leopard disappeared again. We drove ahead, turned around and were still looking in the grass when Joan caught sight of it up a tree. We had this beauty all to ourselves for quite a while.
Happy Birthday to Jodee today who chose #395. Her present is a Yarnell sunset through a crystal that hangs in my RV window. With imagination we could pretend the golden colors are candles on a birthday cake.
Yogi chose #68, a formation in Oregon Caves National Monument called the cowboy column. I think that’s appropriate for a guy from Oklahoma. To see more of the cave take a virtual tour from I worked there.
Barb chose #222, a sunset over Grand Canyon taken in October, 2011.
