This week’s Foto Friday Fun features 10 images chosen by readers from my photo files including several dramatic skies, places visited in South Africa, of course the Grand Canyon, and my wedding cake.
Diane and Nigel chose #2605. One of the many nice guest houses I stayed at in South Africa during my 2013 visit. The Old Mill Lodge in Outdshoorn used to be an ostrich farm and there are still a few around. In fact I had ostrich for dinner here.
Pam and John chose #8109. Summer monsoons provide the most dramatic views of Grand Canyon.
Sallie and Bill chose #727, the date she’ll be meeting a friend for lunch after they get to Oregon from Florida. I’m pretty sure their journey won’t take them through the Painted Desert of central Arizona yet at this time of year they might see some dramatic skies along their journey.
Donna chose #567. If you’re in the Flagstaff area consider a visit to Wupatki National Monument.
Sherry and David chose #8521. I don’t see Grand Canyon from the South Rim very often yet have spent two birthdays there over the years. This shot taken 2015 from Moran Point looking down canyon at the Colorado River.
Jeff chose #9106, “the contract number I have for a few man weeks billing while on our 2017 road trip.” Wish I could bill, and get paid for, some woman hours for my travels to places like Augrabies Falls National Park, South Africa. Guess my pay was for celebrating my 60th there.
Patti and Abi chose #300. During a 2005 visit to San Felipe, Baja Mexico, I hiked with a couple friends (the two guys in the back row) almost to a waterfall. We passed on the rope swing to get to the actual falls then sat with these guys who had just returned while they dried out in the sun.
Jodee and Bill chose #3301. That white blob is a bleached out elephant skull seen in Addo Elephant National Park, South Africa while on a 2013 safari drive.
Bibi chose #18, “the number of days of an upcoming trip.” On June 26, 1980 I was ready for a trip honeymoon hitchhiking from Illinois to California and back. My wedding cake and bouquet put together by friends.
My choice from Tuesday’s drive to North Rim overlooks on the Walhalla Plateau. The Point Imperial view was hazy to the southeast because of wind blown smoke from a prescribed burn near Tusayan outside of the South Rim Grand Canyon National Park.
