This is my foxy friend - he likes eggs, Cheesit mix and being talked to nicely. Mr. Fox posed for us on three different occasions on our travels through this area which is Bretton Woods, NH. I plan to check on him when there is snow on the ground - he would look nice against the white background. I think I was a zookeeper in another life.
Taken while meandering through New Hampshire's White Mountains on the way to Maine. The colors were peak up there 1st week of October and by the end of this month colors should be moving down south to MA. The weather was nice for the most part, but heavy rains had caused major flooding on the other (west) side of the mountains and knocked out our power the first night we were there. Those rivers are nothing short of ferocious!
This is called The Basin an area off Rte. 93 in New Hampshire. The Pemigewassett River has carved a "pothole" in the stone that is so beautiful. I go to this area every time I have a chance and I am never disappointed no matter what the season.
This was taken from the window in a covered bridge in Bath, New Hampshire. The general store next door is one of the oldest is not the oldest in the USA. Very much worth a visit - wonderful smoked meats and cheeses!
Up, up and away - oh what fun this was! My first experience in such a small plane flying over Vermont and getting a bird's eye view. The picture taking was not good until I asked permission to open the window (you have to be careful it doesn't slam against the wing), and got my lens out there. My arms were sore from holding on to the camera and lens, but it was worth it to learn about taking aerial photos.
This tree caught my attention. I was out in the Spring Mountain Recreational Area (Mt. Charleston) outside Las Vegas. Mt. Charleston was the only peak that still had a bit of snow on it so that's where I headed - about 70 miles north of Vegas and then 25 miles west or close to it. It was nice to see the desert below and trees above me, very scenic.
It is hard to see the flies around his nose and neck, but they are there. You have to wear lots of repellant to keep the black flies off you! This was taken at one of the many ponds close to Kokadjo, Maine. These photos are quite tricky to take with a dipping moose and a moving canoe. I wish I could do this everyday.
Looking at this makes me long for summer and moose country. I can't wait to see what mooses present themselves this year. Texas has looked rather dreary the past few months - it is either cold or blazing HOT.
I realized I did not have a picture of my beloved daughter on this blog site and it must be here. I miss her so - she left this world much too early at 17 in March of 2007. She had graduated early at 16 and gone to college. Parisa and her boyfriend, Shelton, had gone to the Texas coast for spring break and were in a horrific accident that killed them both. I hope they are at peace. I will never be the same for a huge piece of my heart went with her and left a gaping hole that always aches.
This is a picture of our new baby alpaca boy, Buddy. I love this one of John and the little one bonding. New Hampshire and Massachussetts were knee deep in snow and just beautiful for photography and skiers. The folks who have to shovel it a lot aren't as enamored as I am.
