I was driving home from dinner and sky turned beautiful.
I took this one last month.
I am not going to put my places on my trip in order. I have been to so many beautiful places this summer. This is one of them. Sinks Canyon State Park features a geologic phenomenon in which the Popo Agie River vanishes into a large cavern (the Sinks) but reappears in a trout- filled pool, the Rise, about half a mile down the canyon. These trout live a leisurely life, with no fishing allowed.
We went to the last campground which is in the National forest area. It was right beside a river and no one was around. I like those campgrounds.
The river was right beside us.
We had a nice campfire.
I didn’t see any bears. (See bear box in picture.)
This is the river going into a cave.
My son walked in the cave, they have a trail to it. I didn’t go.
I took a picture of the beautiful sunrise.
This is what I saw when I woke up.
We started driving to Las Vegas to spend the night at Circus Circus RV. It was so hot. On the way there traffic was stopped for 30 minutes for road work. The temp for the outside temperature said
So this guy gets out of his car and gets a selfie stick and takes pictures. I guess he thought it was picture time. There was bugs on the windshield of my RV.
So we get to Las Vegas and it was hot. We went into Circus Circus and ate at the buffet. It was so crowded. They have rides in the casino and we walked around and my son bought a t-shirt that lights up to sound. It was $35. I later looked them up on the internet. Here is a link. They are cheaper than the casino. The motorhome took forever to cool down. The power went out about 5 am. It was getting hot then. All the power was out in the RV park. We then drove to Zion National Park in Utah. It was 100 degrees there.
You have to ride a shuttle to see the park. The park was crowded and the bus was not air conditioned. The windows just open a little bit. (I guess so you can’t jump out.) I just rode the bus and took this picture. It was too hot to hike for me. I did get a Zion t-shirt. I used to go to Zion all the time and I have hiked every trail there when I was younger. I even went down the river on an inter-tube but they don’t allow that anymore. It used to be better, you could drive it and there was no shuttle.
The mountains are really pretty there. Just go when it is cooler.
We just got back from a vacation. We went to several National parks. Some of them you have to ride their bus to see the park. The bus is hot. I stuck my water bottle In my pocket. I checked to gift shops but their little water bottle holders were $14. I got home and bought a small backpack for $4. I drew a boot on it and painted it with paint and puff paint too. I also drew a water bottle and put rhinestones on it for sparkle. Now I can put my water bottle in it and my camera. I walk little trails to take pictures.
This is the Delicate arch at Arches National park.
The Weekly photo challenge is Vivid. My roses are blooming vivid red. I took a couple of pictures of them.
I got a summons for jury duty for Federal court. First they send a letter telling you to go to their website and fill out a questionnaire. I filled it out and then they sent a summons saying I had jury duty. I postponed it till August. They will send out a new date in July. I looked at the clothing rules. You can’t wear shorts, t-shirts, dress nice. All I have is t-shirts. I ordered me a black blazer from Amazon and it came and was so little I had to send it back. I went to Ross dress for less. Looked all over the store and they had no blazers for jackets like suit ones. Walmart did not have either. I went to Macy’s. They had a nice black Calvin Klein jacket marked $100. The sign on the rack said 50% off. I went to pay for it and it was not 50% off. It rang up $100. I said “The sign says it is 50 percent off.” She said “No, it is a value price, nothing off.” I told her to keep it then. I went to JC Penny and they had a beautiful cream color jacket that was $60 marked 50 percent off. I got it for $30. I bought it.
I also got a nice little white light sweater to wear with the jacket. I have nice black dress pants. I got those at Macy a few months ago. I bought a beautiful mint green sweater, short sleeve to from Penny’s.
I also got a beautiful sweater that looks like a jacket that has a necklace on it. If I get picked for the jury I will have some nice clothes to wear.
I called the court today and they said I could bring my Kindle. She also said I wear a t-shirt with no writing. I am going to wear the new clothes when I go. They pay $40 a day for doing jury duty. It will be interesting to see what goes on in district court.
