We made good time so we decided to stop in Catskill and drive down to the point and see if we could get some good pictures. We have not been there in years. It has been turned into a really nice park. There is a playground, food stand, boat launch area and benches. I forgot to pack the big lens so had to make due with the lens on the camera. I was surprised that this turned out so nice. The leaves are just starting to change and there was very little red color and what color there is seems to be dull.
We went to New York today for a surprise birthday party for my sister. Whenever I spot the Shawangunk Mts., I know I we are almost there. I guess when you grow up close to the mountains they always stay with you.
Baltimore Book Festival starts today. We decided to check it out during lunch time. Was surprised to see how big it’s gotten. Lots of books, booths, food and even some music. Would have liked to have spend some time checking out all the books but had to get back to work.
We got back from vacation around midnight on Friday night. Had a great vacation but I lost my small point and shoot camera somewhere along the way Better that camera than one of my Nikons. It’s been hard to get back in the groove taking pictures at home after such spectacular scenery in Wyoming and Utah. Since it was such a beautiful day, went for a long walk lunchtime. Came across this strange vehicle near the Inner Harbor. It had a row of beer taps in the middle but also some musical instruments like a clarinet and saxophone. Strange combo. There was no one nearby so I couldn’t ask
When we were on the float trip on Snake River the other day, we saw a road that went along part of the river so we checked the map and we found a 15 mile dirt road on the map. We stopped at ranger station and asked about the road and decided to give it a try. It’s a good thing we had a 4 wheel drive. Road was bumpy and had some good size pot holes. We managed to find the spot where the float trip started and got some great views of the river. It was hard to decide which picture we liked the best
Yellowstone Traffic Jam. We noticed traffic was slowing up and there were lots of cars parked alongside the road and was really surprised to see this bison walking right down the middle of the road
Looking for dinner
Another shot of the falls
Another view of the Grand Canyon in Yellowstone. This one was taken from the South Rim.
