Scavenger Hunt Sunday #6

With my wife’s birthday and the holiday weekend we decided to go SOUTH to warmer weather and a place where we could get some pictures for the listed prompts.

Waiting

Waiting to be swept away after a summer of working.

Foliage

You won’t find foliage like this where we live, my wife and I went to St George for the Thanksgiving holiday and I took these pictures while we were there. We just kept say “It’s sure is nice down here!”

Candid

I caught the four ancient monster in a farmer’s field in Geniva Idaho. This is the farmer’s way of recycling old machinery parts. I love his creativity and his willingness to share. You may recognize some of these creatures parts.

Knife , Fork or Spoon

Knife, fork or spoon, your choice, all are available in one tool or they come apart to have each separately available.

Rules of Thirds

These are archive photos, the first was taken at Jenny Lake in Teton Nation Park. The second was was taken from the air, a sunrise shot of Mount Moran on a hazy morning, also part of the park.

Mainly One Color

Cold mornings bring a lot of frost on standing plants.  Mainly white but I love the texture and reflected light.

Around the Home

Around our home the snow melting creates Ice in unique patterns.

Reflections

The mirror is used to see a reflection of the landing gear to assure it is up or down.  It also presented a unique way to take my own reflection of me taking my own picture.

Writing

The writing says it all.

Water

A small water fall up a canyon from our home.  I see the picture and can almost hear the water.

Winter has arrived.

The mountains now have their winter cover.

Scavenger Hunt Sunday #3

A group of my friends and a couple of our wives went on a trail ride this week.  We thought it would be on a dirt road with a few rough places.  We were following what is called the Hole In the Rock trail.  In 1879-1880 winter a group of Mormon settlers left to settle what would become Bluff, Utah.  70 wagons with families went on this trip.  The journey was supposed to take 6 weeks to make a trail 200 miles over country no one had traveled before, it took 6 months to make the trip and 3 babies were born on the trip.  Great history and what a ride.  Enjoy some of the views.

Food

Food for thought.  These wagon track were made over 135 years ago.  These people did not think a thing about what they had to do.  We wouldn’t either.

Purple

Nature has wonderful colors. I could not chose between these so both are posted.

In Disguise

When the prompts were posted my wife told me what they were and I thought she said “in da sky”  I thought this fit.

Shapes

Wonderful open shape in the red rocks, what do you see?

Photographer’s Choice

This is a picture from the top of the hill looking out across the path the wagon train took.

More Photo’s from our trip

I titled this natures mixing bowl.  Large rock become round and small.

The group we went with at lunch. Do you see a trail here?

This is our ride.  Where does the trail go from here?

This is the kind of ride that put my wife off this kind of ride.

IT really scared her.
