This week’s Foto Friday Fun features 6 images chosen by readers from my photo files. All but one comes from my journeys in South Africa. I do love to share these memories.
Mary Lou chose #6768, a rather moody morning as Joan and I hiked the Waterfall Trail in Tsitsikamma National Park, South Africa. Once we got to the falls it really looked like rain so we scampered back a little faster than the hike there.
Jodee chose #5656. This ammonite fossil is the largest I’ve ever seen at over two feet across. Buried under the sand, our guide dug it out to share. Plus we saw a lot of other fossils and petrified trees along this walk on an Indian Ocean beach at Wild Coast Sun in Port Edward, South Africa.
Bibi chose #1978, “the year my son was born.” The year of 2011 brought delightful fall colors to the Kaibab National Forest, Arizona.
Diane chose #4008. A California Redwood, the last thing I expected to see in South Africa. However there were three of these towering beauties in the Hogsback Arboretum. Not sure how I feel about this planting of exotic species but it was a very nice walk. It took several shots to make a panorama of this monster.
Shane chose #6743, looking into a coastal cave along the Tsitsikamma Waterfall Trail mentioned above. Caves intrigue me but we weren’t carrying any light source so didn’t go in very far. Maybe a future trip.
Yogi had randomdotorg choose #2515. A couple of Mountain Zebras enjoying a sunny South African summer day in February, 2013 at none other than Mountain Zebra National Park. These are colored differently than Burchell’s Zebras. Did you know that no two zebras are stripped alike?
My choice this week taken in early October with the last light of the day shining on the temples seen from the Grand Lodge, North Rim Grand Canyon National Park, Arizona. There is snow there now and I’d like to make one more trip to the rim before it closes the end of November.
Please join in next week by leaving a number between 0001 and 9999 in your comment below. Thanks for playing along and sharing the memories.
