Description

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.

Thank you for stopping by. Just to let you know, I'm still blogging but have moved to Geogypsytraveler. Hope you'll follow my adventures. Just click here.

You're a winner in my book any day! Those are great shots.

(I don't know why ducks. They weren't my idea.)

These are all great AZ images! My favorites are the beetle on ranger hat and Mike on Transept Trail.

Great choices for the contest, Gaelyn! I love the macro and Mike looking out over the canyon. I'll go vote...

Janie said...

These are all beautiful. I especially love the last one.
I'll go check out the site.

Excellent choices Gaelyn. I think it is fun to enter my photos in various events. I have had my pics in the local paper and a local mag and of course the fair and I even sent a snow shot a few years back to the local TV station and they showed it. It is just a fun thing for me.

I hope the skies are clear on Dec. 21st for the lunar eclipse.

I have several small dress forms but none full size and I think it would be neat to have one--as you mentioned--to show vintage dresses. But where would I put it or you for that matter. LOL MB
