New Mexico/Colorado (September 2004)


P9111389.jpg

I took 990 photos (with my Olympus 5050Z digital camera) on this trip into the northern part of New Mexico and southwest Colorado. Scenery in that region is spectacular, especially on the 4x4-only roads in Colorado. Here are the most interesting photos from that trip.

New Mexico (April 2003)

Stu and I traveled from Oklahoma to northern Minnesota, took the North Shore drive around Lake Superior, then visited my former residences in Alpena (Michigan), Moline (Illinois), and Canton (Illinois). I took about 400 photos on the trip with my Olympus 3040Z digital camera, and those presented here are the best or most interesting of the lot.

Texas (April-May 2002)

The photos presented here are the best of the more than 400 that I took with my Olympus 3040Z digital camera.

Pine Cones611 views2012-10-13
Acadia National Park, Maine, USA

These pine cones were unusually photogenic, against the bright blue sky. This photo was taken very near the summit of Beech Mountain (just north of the summit), and, I believe, within sight of the fire lookout station.

The Patio del Ciprés (Cypress Patio) is part of the Generalife (La Alhambra). The cypress tree is just off-picture to the right. A sign near the tree says, "Cuenta la leyenda, que este Ciprés de la Sultana, fué (sic) testigo de los amorios de un Caballero Abencerraje y la esposa de Boabdil." (Legend tells us that this cypress of the Sultan witnessed a love affair between a "Caballero Abencerraje" and the wife of Boabdil.) Looking NW.

Acadia National Park, Maine, USA
44.3212,-68.2605

Stu and I took the Spring Trail up as far as the steps (shown here) go, decided it wasn't for us (at least given the amount of time we had left to hike), and ended up going the other way on the Spring Trail (toward the Jordan Pond House). This photo was taken near the southeastern-most extent of Mount Penobscot.
