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.

I always considered South Africa to be a vast and reasonably uninhabited country. Every time that I return to your blog and see an even more amazing part of your country. As South Africans, we are led to believe that we have the best of everything. Not so sure when I see the landscapes that you post.

One could escape the daily ratrace and get lost in the american wilderness.

Snow - wonderful - I don't think it has ever snowed in Port Elizabeth - are temperatures are too moderate.

Snow in May? Wow - but how glorious! And that last shot is stunning.

Jo said...

Aah Gaelyn;) If I were there now, I'd roll in that snow. The temps here are 44 degrees C/ 111 degrees F so I would welcome snow! Enjoy your "work" Hugs Jo

"...soon I forgot to be cold..."

Nice. I like that.

That tree makes a beautiful sculpture at Bright Angel Point trail.

Way too much cold and snow for me.

We are having some delightful weather here today. I have been out for a brief period and sat in a chair and listened to the birds singing and the mother robin scolding her baby about going there or here. The hummingbird popped in on me and left before I could really get a good look. I find I can fall asleep at the drop of a hat and it feels so good to wake up and realize it is still daylight. Your flowers are beautiful. I have some open but not much variety yet.

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful! It's raining here now (Norcal), and snow would be fine but for our wee garden (Nevada).

It must be quite an experience for visitors to see snow at the Grand Canyon. Specially those who think of it as just hot and dry.

Bibi said...

Got to admit that the snow on your photos is lovely, but I am glad you have it now, not me, chuckle.

Aaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh........what a grand day you had. That last shot is worthy of National Geographic!

I haven't been visiting blogs for a little while so I thought I would stop by. I love the Grand Canyon...you are so lucky. I also loved that Iron Cross Blister Beetle a few posts back. You have some nice photos and I love to see and read about your adventures.

Snow now is great. Do they call the little balls Grapple? Lovely shots - love them all because they are so varied.

Barb said...

WHAT? Snow? I love that last pic.

How frustrating to wake up to snow when you are yearning for warm weather. Believe me, I know the feeling, because we can have very chilly weather in May too. This year has been warm and now we are up to 80 degrees for this week. June 1 is our normal frost-free date when it is safe to plant, but we haven't had frost for several weeks.

Your photos are lovely. I especially like the one of the tree in this post and the Mahogany in the last post.

Beautiful in the snow...
Lovely photos Gaelyn.

I think I've heard of those little dry balls of snow being called "pogonip" snow from when I lived in northern Nevada....wish I could pay a visit!

Rambling Woods said...

The snow looked refreshing on this 89 degree day..

Brit Gal Sarah said...

When I was at the GC 30 yrs ago this May, it also snowed overnight and I remember how stunning it was.

Ed said...

Pogonip is not snow, it is what ice fog is commonly called in the Western United States.
