Last Night’s Sunset

I’ve witnessed many spectacular sunsets since living in Kansas, but last night I just happened to be out and about with my Nikon at just the right time. I drove my car down a long dirt road, hoping to get some unobstructed shots. Luckily, I chose well! While last night’s sunset wasn’t as jaw-dropping as […]

My Backyard Squirrels in the Snow

I’ve been so entertained since living at my new house by the scurry (I had to look up that word!) of squirrels in my backyard trees. I’ve rewarded them their cuteness by buying sacks of special dried corn on the cob, and unshelled nuts. Watching them after the recent snow was especially fun. They’re really […]

Happy New Year 2022

Here’s wishing everyone much health and happiness in 2022! I woke up on New Year’s Day to snow, and felt like a little kid all over again. It was 8 degrees and icy under the snow so I didn’t venture out, but I thoroughly enjoyed staring out the windows the entire day. Having lived in […]

Where the Buffalo Roam

There’s a song I grew up listening to that popped in my head as I took my friends Aranka and George to the Maxwell Wildlife Refuge near the Swedish town of Lindsborg, Kansas a few weeks ago. The song is called Home on the Range, and is considered a traditional American folk song. The lyrics […]

Fall Colors On My Street

My dear friends, Aranka and George from Nevada, just left after spending a week visiting me in my new home. We had a great time, did some fun exploring in the local area, and had top notch weather to boot. Aranka and I made a point to check out new routes on our daily walks. […]

Exploring My New Town

Late yesterday afternoon, I hopped in my car, intent on exploring a bit of the area. It wasn’t the best time of day, which I realized once I was out… seems it was quitting time for many folks, the roads were busy, people were in a hurry, and I had a hard time stopping to […]

New Resident of Kansas

As of October 8, 2021, my move halfway across the country, from Southern California to Central Kansas, is complete! What an undertaking that was; one I don’t wish to repeat. I spent weeks carefully packing my things, which includes a huge, heavy antique china cabinet plus lots of antique glassware left to me by my […]

Navajo Nation

As my friends and I journeyed from Utah to Arizona on Route 89A, we drove through part of the Navajo Nation. The landscape was beautiful, but it was a hot day and we had lots of miles to cover so we didn’t linger long. Our only stops were at a group of roadside vendors selling […]

Red Rock, White Cloud

Today’s Foto Fix was taken somewhere along Arizona route 89A during my recent Road Trip, most likely in the general area of the Kaibab Indian Reservation and Vermilion Cliffs National Monument. We took a very scenic drive from Zion National Park in Utah to our destination in Heber-Overgaard Arizona. ~SueBee

Kolob Canyons

Another highlight of my recent Road Trip with my friends, Aranka and George, was Kolob Canyons in Utah. It’s a less-visited section of Zion National Park, which meant fewer cars on the road. We were able to enjoy the stunning scenery without having to sit in bumper to bumper traffic, fight for a parking spot […]

Valley of Fire, part 3

Bighorn Sheep posing for the camera was another high point of my visit to Valley of Fire in Nevada. The sheep didn’t seem to mind those of us who eagerly pointed our cameras. ~SueBee

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 […]
