San Luis Obispo

Here are a couple of leftover photos from last summer's trip to San Luis Obispo. First is a creek near the mission, a pleasant place to relax.
 And finally,  Mitchell Park - I liked the way the trees lined the path.

Rüdesheim, Germany

It's been too long since I joined the Vintage Weekly meme, so here's a 1977 photo of vineyards in Rüdesheim, Germany.
As you can see, it's a beautiful area.

Lots of Interesting Clouds

For this week's Skywatch Friday post, here are several interesting skies seen from my house over the last few weeks. First, a pretty watercolor. All photos are straight out of the camera.
These next clouds can indicate a severe thunderstorm.
My favorite is from a nearby storm after the sun went down, making for a surreal sky - if you look carefully you can see a little lightning in the middle-right of the cloud, illuminating it from within. I've got more shots from this storm saved for another post.
I love Colorado summer skies - there's always something to see.

Pulpit Rock (3)

Following up from my last Skywatch Friday post, here are some views of Pulpit Rock in its entirety. First, a photo from before I entered the trees.
Here's a shot from the side - do you see the people at the top, on the left high point? They don't look very big. I'll show you views from up there in another post.
And finally a complete shot from the trail.

Here's my little buddy Socks on a hike. He gets very excited when he sees me getting my hiking gear ready!

Soon I'll show you a photo of the whole thing...

Mount Cutler

Mount Cutler is an easy early-season hike within the city limits. You can see the trail winding around the mountainside.
One of the side-paths goes to the top of this cliff.
Here is the view from the top of that cliff, looking towards the city.
Here's one from almost the same place as the previous photo, but looking in the other direction.
There's always lots of interesting plant life.
Trees will hang on anywhere!
This is my entry for Our World Tuesday - I love hiking in my part of the world.

Mission SLO - Inside

Here are some more photos of Mission San Luis Obispo de Tolosa, this time focusing on the inside. First, the main church.
And some photos of the museum.
The Inspired Sunday meme has lots more photos of religious buildings of all kinds.

Snake Train

As I was climbing a mountain yesterday, I loved this view of a very long train snaking its way through the pass.
On the original photo you can see it's carrying coal. It's my entry for Our World Tuesday this week.
