7 Super Shots – Travel Photos Revisited

At the prompting of fellow blogger Sandra Foyt of Albany Kid, I am taking part in HostelBookers 7 Super Shots. I don’t often follow prompts for my blog posts, but I liked this particular challenge.

Yosemite National Park's Tioga Road

Highway 6 – A Long, Deserted Drive

I was sad to leave Yosemite this morning. As we drove along the Tioga Road, I was continually amazed by the surrounding beauty of the mountains and trees. I have never been to a place quite as beautiful – it must be God’s country. Now I understand why Ansel Adams spent so much time here. […]

Giant Trees and Chocolate Cake!

The Nevada Highway

A restful stay with the Albertis!

We drove from Las Vegas to Sparks, NV on Wednesday. It was a long drive through a very hot, very rocky, very unpopulated desert, but well worth the ride. The Albertis are like my second set of in-laws. Boris and Terry served in Vietnam together, and the two families have been friends ever since. I […]
