This week’s Foto Friday Fun features images chosen by nine readers from my photo files including a Christmas blast from the past.
Mary Lou chose #1699. When boating on Lake Powell it is very important to keep track of the buoy numbers compared to the map. I can imagine it would be easy to get lost otherwise. Or at least for me, a mapaholic.
Pam and John chose #9331. One of eight in a panorama taken last October from the Ken Patrick trail on the North Rim Grand Canyon. Unfortunately these fall aspen won’t be seen this year because of the Fuller Fire. But they’ll be back.
Donna chose #247. I think she is going for this entire 2008 rim to rim hike across Grand Canyon as it’s at least the third photo she’s picked. This tunnel along Bright Angel trail is almost to the top of the South Rim.
Patti chose #5691. Last week she didn’t care for her spider choice as she’s not a fan of creepy crawly things. Hope she doesn’t consider fossils in that category. A bank of sedimentary deposits along the Indian Ocean in South Africa revealed all kinds of cool fossils including a huge ammonite. Taken 2-22-14.
Diane and Nigel chose #6669. Part of a series she’s chosen from along the Waterfall trail in Tsitsikamma National Park 2-28-14. Being their trip to South Africa isn’t taking them to Tsitsikamma I think she wants to see it in photos.
Fabgrandma chose #1952, “for the year I was born.” Good choice as I’m teasing her to come to the desert this winter with Fabgrandpa. And I’d be sure this ocotillo near my December 2014 camp in Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, California is older than she is.
Sallie chose #1 because “Seems like nobody ever wants to go first.” Not so with me as I’m often the first to volunteer. But I’d also be the first to say, I’m not sure when this shot from youth in Downers Grove, Illinois was taken. Probably the late 1960s sometime. Had to be Christmas morning because no packages would have been under the tree before then.
Yogi chose #9989, “…in honor of me and Heather’s anniversary.” These two are as magical as seeing inversion in Grand Canyon.
