EMP Museum Exterior

This is the last of my photos from our trip to Seattle earlier this year. I loved the play of the shadows on the exterior of the EMP Museum.
It's an obvious choice for Shadow Shot Sunday, and of course I'm linking it to Our World Tuesday.

Muscoco Skies

Here are a couple of Skywatch Friday photos from a recent early-morning hike up Muscoco Mountain.
The sun was just coming over the mountain behind me for this second shot.
This hike is within a city park, and I'll have more photos from it another time.

It's Fall!

It's fall, and although I haven't made it into the mountains yet, they will soon look like this.
It's a scanned slide from 1995, and it's for Vintage Weekly and Our World Tuesday.

Inquisitive Deer

She's probably thinking - what are you doing in my garden?
Taken in Garden of the Gods, and linked to Camera Critters.

We are not directly impacted by the terrible floods here in Colorado, thanks for all the concern. Unfortunately, many have lost their houses and businesses in what may be the worst flooding in the state's history. In just a couple of days, there was a foot of rain north of us and a foot of rain south of use (that's 30 cm for the metric world), and this is a very dry area that isn't used to heavy rain. We were were in the middle and didn't have nearly that much. Between the wildfires within a few streets of our house, and the deluge that just missed us, we consider ourselves very lucky this summer.

Rattlesnake Ledge & Drums

Going back to our Mach trip to the Seattle area, this photo shows where a hike was intended to lead. We didn't make it to the top because of the snow.
But the nearby visitor center had a famous drum exhibit, in which the drums are played by  raindrops.
It's a quick post for Our World Tuesday.

For Those Lost

For all those lost on that terrible day 12 years ago.

Independence Pass (October 1995)

Near Aspen, a road goes over Independence Pass, topping out at an elevation of 12,095 feet (3,687 meters) above sea level. If I remember correctly, this photo is a slide taken near the top back in October of 1995.
I'm linking to Vintage Weekly and Our World Tuesday.

Chihuly Glass

Near the Space Needle in Seattle is the Chihuly Garden & Glass exhibit. Although we didn't go in, I took these photos from outside the hedge that surrounds the exhibition.
The glass works are incredible, even seen from a distance.
They are very intricate.
And they're my entry to Our World Tuesday this week, as well as Blue Monday for those fabulous blue Seattle skies.
