I own no land, instead I have wheelestate. I’ve been a full time RVer since 1997. Working summers as a Park Ranger takes me to many beautiful places and playing during the winter takes me to many more. This blog is simply the story of my life's adventures.

Sky Watch Friday


Wapatki National Monument
I took this last week on my way out of the monument. It brought the snow that kept me in Flagstaff an extra day. I understand it doesn’t look like that now but is clear and sunny like summer coming on.

Yarnell Sunset
I just couldn’t resist adding last night’s sky, taken with my NEW camera, a Canon PowerShot A1000 IS.

Finally a macro that works
And this shot is my inside sky, and dirty ceiling. An unknown kind of spider less than .25 inch which the new camera could immortalize from only 2 inches away. I’m loving it.

How fun that you got a new Camera Gaelyn. It should be fun to test out all of the features. Is it some kind of jumping spider. He is probably looking out for you by eating little mites or other yummy and juicy visitors to your traveling home.

Cool spider image, and those open roads are amazing. There is I'm sure a daily photographer from Flagstaff. You'd really like there stuff.

How much fun to have a new camera! New toys are always fun to play with. I am glad you are enjoying its features. Bernie decided his big camera was too heavy and bulky to carry the whole PCT, so we are taking a little one, that my parents are very kindly letting us use.
