Pikes Peak As Seen From Our House

Sunday, March 31, 2013


It's time for Vintage Weekly, and this week's theme is N at Tina's PicStory, so here's an old photo from the Netherlands for both these fun memes. It's the famous Euromast in Rotterdam, probably in 1976.
To all my readers who celebrate this day, Happy Easter!

Downtown Bellevue Park Trees

For Skywatch Friday, here are some tree photos from the downtown park in Bellevue, near Seattle, on a typically mostly-cloudy day last week.

Guess Where I've Been

I just got back from visiting relatives. If you don't know where this is, just look at the labels below the post. But it's a pretty distinctive landmark so you can probably guess!
Both photos were taken on Saturday, but I'm back in Colorado again. I'm linking this post to Our World Tuesday, as well as to Tina's PicStory as this week's theme is March Flowers. We had a little of every type of weather while we were there - sun, rain, and snow, so there are lots of varied photos to come.

South Korean Dancers

Tina's PicStory theme this week is happiness. From a preserved South Korean village, here are dancers after a wedding ceremony, which I think perfectly illustrates the theme.
It's the last of my photos from a 1998 trip to South Korea, and I'm also linking it to Our World Tuesday. And I'm happy to notice that Vintage Weekly is back, so please visit there for more old photos.

Blue Sky, Wooden Lattice

For Skywatch Friday, here's a simply mostly-blue sky through a wooden lattice at the amazing Garden of the Gods Park.
It's nothing spectacular, but I'm sure some of my readers enjoy seeing blue skies of any type this time of year.

Cold Morning in Fox Run Park

Here are some photos taken on a cold winter morning (5 degrees F, -15 C) in Fox Run Park, after a fresh snow.
The trees have an almost surrealistic feeling to them on a morning like this.
Only one set of footsteps leads down the trail ahead of me.
This was too cold for our little dog Socks, so he stayed at home. But I enjoyed it, and it's my frigid post for Our World Tuesday.

Mount Herman

I'm going back to last July for this blog post, when a group of us climbed nearby Mount Herman. I always enjoy seeing this meadow about half way up.
Closer to the top I found this dead tree, which I though made an interesting contrast to the never-ending forest in the background.
Here's a view in the other direction from the top, towards civilization.
Here we're starting to go back down the trail. Notice my little buddy Socks ready to start scrambling down some rocks!
And of course I have to throw in a photo looking towards the famous Pikes Peak.
And another  in the same direction, this time showing the trail.
You can find lots more beautiful photos on the Scenic Weekends meme.

Korean Dam

Here's a small dam at the preserved village we visited in South Korea back in 1998.
It's for Vintage Weekly as well as Our World Tuesday.
