Valley of Fire, part 2

My fascination with this area of natural beauty, Valley of Fire near Mesquite, Nevada, continues in the below gallery. The petroglyphs were so interesting, and luckily, the design of the staircase that kept us a good distance away from the rocks meant very few people were able to deface them. ~SueBee

Valley of Fire, part 1

The Road Trip with my friends Aranka and George started in earnest on Monday, May 24th. We left Pahrump and drove out Interstate Highway 15 toward Mesquite, Nevada, and turned onto the Valley of Fire Highway. It’s quite a drive through arid desert hills before reaching the Valley of Fire Nevada State Park entrance… and […]

On the Road Again, part 2

I arrived in Pahrump late afternoon on a recent Saturday, with plans to head out on the road on Monday. So, Sunday was a day of checking out some scenes in the Pahrump area. We stumbled on rock climbers near Mt Potosi (the site of a TWA plane crash in 1942 that killed 22 people, […]

On the Road Again, part 1

A bit more than a week ago, I started on a rather spontaneous week-long road trip with my friends, Aranka and George, by first heading to their home in Pahrump, Nevada. The below pictures were taken along route CA-127 between Baker and Shoshone, California. It’s a remote, beautiful road that could make a person feel […]

Gray May Day

It’s been a traditional gray month of May. It’s weather we should be very grateful for considering how blasting hot it will be soon. I personally love this cooler weather. An advantage to the gray days, no doubt, is reduced crowds along the beach. I’ll take that any day. The pictures are from Corona Del […]

Spring Springing in Kansas

My recent two week visit to Kansas allowed me to see more changing of the seasons than we get here in Southern California. It was fun waking up to a snow-covered wonderland one day, and then watch it melt away by late afternoon. Bright green new leaves seemed to welcome the little break as they […]

26 Hours Riding the Rails

I returned earlier this week from a two-week visit to Hutchinson, Kansas, helping my son and son-in-law with a move to their new home. I’d flown out to Wichita, and returned the ~1350 miles via train. Taking the Amtrak train was on my want-to-do list for quite some time, and it didn’t disappoint. I was […]

Sights From Kansas – Fort Larned part 2

Continuing from my previous post, this gallery shows some of the interior displays at Fort Larned. I think it’s fascinating to see how people lived back in those times. I didn’t have much time to read all the descriptions at each room so I don’t have information on them to share, but I think you […]

Picking Flowers

Today’s Foto Fix is from April, 2014, when I took my mom to see the Flower Fields in Carlsbad, California. We had a wonderful time, surrounded by endless rows of color, scents of springtime in the air. ~SueBee

Sights From Kansas – Fort Larned

Historical sites always draw me in to explore, so on my recent visit to Kansas, I borrowed my son’s car and set off to see Fort Larned, home to the guardians of the Santa Fe Trail as the website states. Knowing the raw deal Native Americans got from our government makes visiting an old fort […]

Sights From Kansas – Pawnee Rock

During my recent Kansas visit, Loren took me to see historical Pawnee Rock. The 360 degree view was great, but I was most drawn to the old graffiti, left by travelers in the late 1800 and early 1900s. Fascinating! Per Wikipedia, “Pawnee Rock is one of the most famous and beautiful landmarks on the Santa […]

Sights From Kansas – Cheyenne Bottoms

My son-in-law, Loren, toured me around the Great Bend, Kansas, area, starting with a visit to Cheyenne Bottoms. Per Wikipedia, “Cheyenne Bottoms is a wetland in the central Great Plains of North America. Occupying approximately 41,000 acres in central Kansas, it is the largest wetland in the interior United States. The Bottoms is a critical […]

Sights From Kansas

I took my Nikon on the plane to Kansas, hoping for good weather and a chance to venture out and about. I had both. My son-in-law, Loren, drove me around the neighboring areas and naturally, I took several hundred pictures! It’s an interesting state with lots to see and I thoroughly enjoyed myself. ~SueBee

Country Road in Kansas

I spent the past week visiting my son and son-in-law in Kansas, my first time seeing them since they moved there a year ago, and my first time in Kansas. Being fully vaccinated now, I was finally able to get on an airplane. We had a really nice time together; it felt so normal! I […]

Bighorn Sheep Sighting

I hiked the Palm Canyon Trail late one afternoon during my Solo Car Camping trip at Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, intent on spotting bighorn sheep (borrego, in Spanish). I wasn’t disappointed, except in myself for not lugging my heavy zoom lens along. The sheep were near-impossible to see, as they blend in amazingly well with […]

Terror in the Desert

It can get mighty terrifying in the desert… ~SueBee Per an article I found online on Yelp, “Philanthropist Dennis Avery (Avery labels) commissioned metal sculpture artist Ricardo Breceda to design and construct metal sculptures in scattered property Avery owned in Borrego Valley. He bought the land to keep it from being developed and give access […]
