Palo Duro

Since I am far behind posting on my blog.  Far to busy it seems.  I’m going to try and catch up!

While away in New Mexico, I was always trying to find new places to see.  Fun way to do that.  Hiking.

I picked the LightHouse Trail, one because it was a flat trail with about 800 feet of rock climbing straight up to get to the Light House Formation.  And it was the longerst of the trails.

I had a chance play with settings.  It was on this hike I decided that I was going to get a lens that was both a wide angle and a zoom.  Swapping out was killing me!  (I did get a 18mm-270mm lens!  It rocks!)

It was a great hike.  The upward climb (which I didn’t take pictures of, I was to busy panting and sweating) was hell!  But worth it.

Mount Katahdin

It’s a big old hunk of granite that reaches out towards the sky to tickle the blue and be the first to be wet on those days where the sky is grey.

My brother, Lee, has always had a fascination with Mount K, for as long as I can remember.  Which, of course, means that I like Mt. K too.

{this moment} – A Friday ritual. A single photo – no words – capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember. Inspired by SouleMama.
