  • Monday Mural| Found near the Cascade Range

    Ronald McDonald in a mural is not something you might not have seen. However, I had to take a picture of this one, because I caught what I thought might be Mt. Hood in the background. So maybe I could call this the Ronald McDonald- Mt. Hood mural. Today we...
  • Royal Gorge| The grand canyon of the Arkansas

     When we were planning our Colorado trip, one attraction we were particularly attracted to was the Royal Gorge in Cañon City. There seemed to be a lot to see and do at the Royal Gorge Bridge & Park. We were travelling with my ‘bestie’ and her family and it seemed...
  • Utah’s rocky deserts – I

    One morning in Utah’s rocky desert-land. The dry land watching the sun on its way up. And catching some early morning light. And my lens was busy catching the landscape catching the light. These pictures are from a moving train. Utah’s dry side, its canyons and rock forms and...

    California Zephyr going around a bend in the Rocky Mountains, Colorado Denver, Colorado, was always on the cards. But when I came across a story last year, on San Francisco to Chicago (through Denver) being one of the most scenic train routes in the United states, I wished we...
  • Pristine Lake Tahoe

    It was the colours of Lake Tahoe that I found most fascinating. We first spotted the Lake from the mountain roads that led to South Lake Tahoe. The lake was several miles away but we could see a bluish green surface from the distance. However, when we were finally driving...
  • Tahoe…Finally

    Lake Tahoe has been on our list of places-to-visit for a long time now. We just never got down to planning it. Then one evening hubby just announced out of the blue that we were off to Tahoe that weekend. Now who can say ‘No’ to an idea of...
