This week’s Foto Friday Fun features images from my photo files chosen by 11 readers including a lot of where it all started, as a kid, career as Ranger, blogger, and replenishing backpacking gear.
Jim and Diana chose #275, “the height of the General Sherman Tree…the Giant Sequoia we were fortunate to be able to see, thanks to folks like John Muir and Hale Tharp.” It is also thanks to them I have a job as a Park Ranger with the National Park Service. And because of that I met FabGrandma who inspired me to start blogging and has been my mentor ever since. This is where the blog began in my previous 5th-wheel in 2008. I believe some of you have been along for the journey almost since that time. I still love blogging, and especially because of you readers, some of who I’ve met IRT.
Pam and John chose #7021. One shot in a favorite series from last fall living in Kirkland, AZ.
Diane and Nigel chose #1205. My dear friend Berta and I often take a winter road trip to Laughlin, Nevada. Not to gamble, but just for something different and to soak in a hot tub. This 2012 trip we took a little detour along the Colorado River.
Sallie and Bill chose #66, “that’s when I’d like to be headed out of Florida toward Oregon eventually.” The next best thing to a Florida beach when I was two years old was a pool in the back yard of Illinois.
Jeff chose #275, “the distance from the beach house to home.” Second choice for same number. I was about 2.75 inches away from the crystal hanging in the RV window.
Yogi chose #3271. A tree squirrel in a Ponderosa Pine at the North Rim Grand Canyon last August.
Patti chose #280. After my first rim to rim hike into Grand Canyon with borrowed gear I bought a Thermarest from Moosejaw. Such a funny company. And the irony behind seeing the image this week, I just looked on their website for some hiking boots.
My choice from driving home from Kanab across the Kaibab Plateau. Love those big stretches of meadows and am always watching the sky. BTW, my PC is now fixed and ready for pickup, maybe next week.
