Rocky Mountain autumn

Here are the best of yesterday's photos taken on a most lovely October 1st as the aspens shivered in shades of bright yellow and peach, some trees shading from green through yellow to palest orange. They show a burst of color on the evergreen slopes, or a swath across a landscape, or a own a patch... Sign in to see full entry.

Rockies: First snowfall on the mountain

First sign of the coming winter: snowfall on Pike's Peak overnight. I was up at dawn to catch the sight before the sun came over the eastern horizon, and after. Mostly, though--the snow! In August. Sign in to see full entry.

A few new skies

Some sunsets are glorious and dramatic, others are soft and simply gorgeous! Here also, a couple of shots of this year's summer deck garden. I've taken away some of the old chairs and brought in one that swings from a hook in the ceiling. And here is a butterfly, a lovely tiger swallowtail.... Sign in to see full entry.

Just booked my flight...

I'm going back to England in January for 3 weeks, to celebrate Marika's birthday and her graduation from her Master's program, and of course to meet my granddaughter who is expected in mid-December. Also exciting, I booked on Icelandair, an overnight flight. This means several interesting... Sign in to see full entry.

Pueblo, CO

Most Americans know of Pueblo, Colorado only if they have ever sent away for government brochures, but there's a lot more in this town than US Govt. brochure warehouses. When Charlie was doing murder mystery dinner theater, they had a gig down in Pueblo. I drove him to the venue at the old Pueblo... Sign in to see full entry.

Over the hills, not too far away

Treated myself to a half-day road trip today, going from Palmer Lake, CO westward, just exploring, enjoying discovering a landscape I have not seen before. It goes from open pastureland with, mostly, horses in large and small herds, to a more hilly landscape punctuated with grey boulders. There is a... Sign in to see full entry.

Charlie took all the pictures along the road, and mine are the viewpoint shots of trees and landscapes. You can probably tell the difference: he has his own eye with the lens! The stretch of I-70 that runs between I-15 in Utah, and Denver--they could sell tickets! But, so far, they don't.... Sign in to see full entry.

It's after 4 am...

and I am awake, and my brain seems to be working again more or less properly. I've prepared more photos for you, of a few miles of Oregon, not much of Idaho, and a fair bit of the stretch of I-84 and I-80 on the border of Utah and Wyoming. That was day before yesterday, now. We spent one night in... Sign in to see full entry.

There is a hill...

It rises east of Pendleton, Oregon, a 3-lane highway with gradients from 2 to 8% for 10 miles. It was one of the particular things on today's route I had some worries about--that hill, and high winds in the Columbia River Gorge. There was rain, but no wind, and we sailed over the hill at 45-50mph,... Sign in to see full entry.

More new photos

Photos are catching up... partly because I am not taking nearly as many as might be taken, as most of my attention has been on driving. When it isn't, I forget things like checking the gas level and end up filling the 34 gal tank with 33.8 gallons all at once.... Sign in to see full entry.
