This week’s Foto Friday Fun features 11 images chosen by readers from my photo files including rock, water, the cookie place, and more.
Bibi chose #5294, “the distance from Belgrade to Sainji, India, where I plan to volunteer teaching English for a few months.” What an awesome thing to do. Yet I’d prefer to volunteer to just sit and watch the Grand Canyon from Crazy Jug Point where this shot was taken 7-9-15. Maybe I’ll just spend some days off there this summer. (This is where we were headed when we noticed the bald tire.)
Sherry and David chose #9119. They like hiking to waterfalls so I believe they’d enjoy where this flow of the Orange River becomes Augrabies Falls, “The Place of Great Noise” in a national park in South Africa where I celebrated my 60th birthday in March, 2014.
Mary Lou chose #5192. For the last nine years I’ve enjoyed watching the International champion hoop dancer Derek Suwaima-Davis at the Grand Canyon North Rim’s annual Native American Heritage Days. Sure hope he returns for this year’s August celebration.
Patti chose #290 for her leaps of 10. Caught this shot from a helicopter during winter of 1996 when major flooding occurred in the Gifford Pinchot National Forest on the south side of Mount St Helens. Because roads were washed out, several volunteers, including me, were air lifted out of our work station at Pine Creek.
Sallie and Bill chose #1500 as “part of a phone number on a card posted on my bulletin board.” Maybe this shot could be a panorama postcard looking north towards Bryce Canyon National Park from the Glendale Bench Road in Utah taken 10-29-11. This was part of a loop drive across BLM and State land joined with Johnson Canyon Road, the Vermilion Cliffs, and back to Kanab.
Diane and Nigel chose #2005. If you follow me on FB you’ll know this place, and they do to. Jacob Lake is at the junction to the North Rim Grand Canyon whether you drive from Arizona or Utah. The Inn is renowned for its superbly decadent cookies. The secret is lard. I like the chocolate chip best. (Hint, hint.)
Rosemary chose #989. As many of you may know, I’m addicted to jewelry, mostly sterling silver that I not only wear but call my retirement. This is some of the mostly antique brooches I display but rarely wear. Plus some earrings to the left. My motto, a woman can never have too much jewelry.
Yogi chose #5001. A sunset over the Weaver Mountains near Kirkland, Arizona taken 3-27-13, before I lived in Kirkland last winter.
Jeff chose #1618, “the cost to use plus the number of letters in Cross Border Express.” This train station in Downers Grove, Illinois where I grew up was not really for express trains but commuters to Chicago from the suburbs. Took this shot when back for my 40th high school reunion in 2012.
Jodee and Bill chose #4490. Being they’re headed to the west coast on the Pacific Ocean this might be sort of what they see along the sea. However, this shot was taken at the Atlantic Ocean in West Coast National Park in Langebaan, South Africa in March 2013.
My choice (not because it’s a good photo) taken this week from the cookie stop at Jacob Lake Inn, seen above, of one of their customers. Didn’t know this hairdo was still in fashion. Kind of looked like a saw blade.
