Part Eight Today’s trip was to Arches National Park at “The Fins,” where the rock formations are flat triangles, hence the name “Fins.” It’s a short drive from Moab, but the clouds overtook the sky, so no night photography and the sunset was a bit drab in color. Sometimes, the weather works against you, IContinue reading “Visiting Utah”
Part Three It was time to leave the Bison behind and continue to Bryce; once you leave Salt Lake City, the road opens to 80 MPH, and you can just hit the cruise control and listen to some road trip music. After a lunch break, it is time to leave the Highway/Interstate/Motorway for Scenic RouteContinue reading “Visting Utah”
Part Two First full day in Utah, a restful night’s sleep and a good breakfast is a great way to start the day.

The Chateau became part of the crown’s (the king’s) holders, and he gifted it to The Girl in the Fireplace from Dr. Who, AKA Diane de Poitiers, the King’s Mistress. She outlived the KingContinue reading “Visting France”

The photo below shows a small wooden boat parked in the Thermaic Gulf in Thessaloniki, Greece. My trip to Greece was about seven cameras ago, I don’t use years for my photos; just how many cameras have passed between now and then. This photo is so old it was under 1MB. I have since purchased the TopazContinue reading “Old Made New.”
