This week’s Foto Friday Fun features images chosen by eight readers from my photo files including photos from national parks in the the USA and South Africa.
Sherry chose #9388. I searched in the fall of 2014 to find a view of the colors and Grand Canyon and finally found what I was looking for at the Point Imperial overlook on the North Rim.
Mary Lou chose #0731, a closeup of a vintage Chevrolet seen at the North Rim when a car club visited Grand Canyon in June 2012. That’s the way to see the USA in a Chevrolet.
Jean chose #1967, unidentified flowers along the Echo Ravine Trail in Golden Gate Highlands National Park seen when visiting South Africa in February 2013. Although mostly a geology park the flowers and wildlife were also fascinating.
Pam chose #0720. A tour in the archives at Grand Canyon’s South Rim of historic boats was a highlight of the History Symposium. Our guide and others found this only surviving piece of John Wesley Powell’s 140 year-old boat Nellie near Lee’s Ferry in a burnt field.
Diane chose #8007. You might know that elephants are my favorite animal and Addo Elephant National Park has repeatedly provided lots of views, especially by waterholes. This adorable young threesome put on quite the show when visiting South Africa in March 2014.
Sallie chose #7021. Almost sunset at Grand Canyon for this view of Wotans Throne from the wedding site at Cape Royal on the North Rim. All it takes is a permit to get married here. And today is Grand Canyon National Park’s 97th birthday!
My choice from last week’s visit to Death Valley National Park taken with my phone. The “superbloom” in Badwater Basin featured mostly Desert Gold wildflowers with a few other yellows, purples and whites thrown in.
