Weekly photo challenge: Careful

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Careful.”

We went to Craters of the moon National Monument in Idaho. Craters of the Moon is a vast ocean of lava flows and cinder cones. It is black lava everywhere. We stopped at the steep lava hill and my son wanted to walk to the top. Then he ran down. You have to be careful because if you fall, it could skin you up pretty good.


The little kid in the picture was really running down the slope. It looked a lot blacker in real life. The black didn’t come out real black in the pictures. We went to the campground and it was just black rough lava. We didn’t stay there because it was really hot there.DSCN0658u

Weekly photo challenge: Change

In response to weekly photo challenge: Change.     The supermoon eclipse. At first I could not see anything. It was cloudy. Then the clouds parted and I saw the moon.

Then the clouds started moving over it. The view changes but I could still see some of it.


Then the clouds almost covered it again making it all look grey.


It is now back to normal, really bright in the sky. For a couple of hours the change in the moon was wonderful.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Today was a Good Day

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Today Was a Good Day.”

We spent one day at Arches National Park in Utah by Moab. The rock is full of arches and holes in these giant sandstone walls. Wind and water carve out these beautiful arches.


It is a long road and every turn you see beautiful sights.

This one is my favorite, Delicate Arch.

You can get out and walk around and touch and look or just drive and enjoy the beauty.

Weekly photo challenge: Enveloped

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Enveloped.”

The weekly photo challenge is Enveloped.

I made some cinnamon rolls this morning. The dough is wrapped around an around, enveloped by another one.


This is my new motor home, enveloped in my yard beside my house and fence. I can’t wait to drive it somewhere, but the weather is rainy for a week.
