This week’s Foto Friday Fun features 12 images chosen by readers from my photo files including shots from South Africa, Arizona, Utah and Missouri. Please note that over half these images are from protected lands taken in a respectful way. If you care about the continued preservation of public lands, please let your Congressperson know.
Mary Lou chose #3327. Zebras look sort of like horses in striped pajamas. But when visiting Hluhluwe iMfolozi National Park (‘hl = sh) in South Africa it was too hot to wear anything, and thus we didn’t stay long.
Sherry and David chose #7329, “for no reason at all.” At least half the photos I take are for no reason at all, or just because, like the red flowers on this unidentified thorn bush seen while taking a hike at Warmwaterberg Spa in South Africa. The hot water soak later definitely had a reason.
Jean and Skip chose #1299. You may have to look hard for the small arch (almost dead center) seen while hiking in a side canyon along the Cottonwood Canyon road in Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument. Please don’t let Congress reduce this national monument.
Sallie chose #1238, the time she posted this comment. This shot of a turkey vulture from one of the many times I’ve hiked in the Weaver Mountains in Yarnell, Arizona taken 3-28-12.
Diane and Nigel chose #303, one of oh so many sunsets seen over the Weaver Mountains in Yarnell, taken 1-25-09.
Jim and Diana chose #2007, “as we had a 2007 Pontiac Vibe that we used to tease that we pulled our 24 foot travel trailer with.” This was my 2007 Christmas letter that I used to either email or print and snail mail to friends and family. Guess blogging has replaced this.
Jeff chose #7135. Being on safari is not just about seeing the wildlife but recognizing where to look for what like seeing the dassie poop on the boulders where they make their dens. Karoo National Park in South Africa was also about fascinating geology and paleontology. Taken 3-2-14.
Yogi chose #5000. Another shot of Grand Canyon but this one taken from the South Rim on the Hermit Road during last years training. So many awesome views points along this drive which typically requires using the shuttle bus, or driving during the off seasons.
Pam and John chose #4902. Dome Rock BLM is a gorgeous place to boondock just west of Quartzsite, Arizona. Especially nice to watch the morning light up the cholla. Taken 2-16-15. I’ll bet they’ve camped around here.
Patti chose #180 in her leaps of ten. This shot taken in the early 1970s of a drive boat-in called The Clown on Lake of the Ozarks where my family vacationed. We stopped here often, I think mostly because the servers wore bikinis. And that’s my dad’s boat at the dock, called it “Six-Pak” because it wouldn’t run without at least that much beer onboard.
