King and Queen of the Mountain

We climbed a nearby mountain this morning, a little over 9,040 feet high (2.75 km).
People asked if my little dogs really climbed all the way up. Of course they did, scrambling up a few rocks when necessary, and they enjoyed every minute. If I'm getting my hiking gear ready they won't let me leave the house without them!

Dusk at WTC

When I got to the top of One World Trade Center it was dusk.

Inside One WTC

Last time I was in New York City I went up One World Trade Center. I was lucky that there was no line.
Normally this attractive entry area would be full of people.
Even the elevators are unique - the walls are video screens that show a panorama of the city. The view starts out showing how the area looked 500 years ago...
...and follows the time forward, until one minute (and 100 floors) later you see what the city looks like today on these enormous screens.
I've got a few photos from the top to share, but that will be for another day. In the meantime visit Our World Tuesday to see photos from around the world.

Northport, Long Island

I took time to visit relatives on Long Island last time I was in New York, and here are some shots of the beautiful Northport harbor.

Cheyenne Canyon

Over the July 4th weekend I went for a little hike in North Cheyenne Canyon, a city park.
I liked this tree root growing out of the mountainside.
Of course I had my furry friends with me - here's little Laika ready to climb some stairs. They get so excited when they see me getting my hiking stuff ready!

The U.S.A. celebrated Independence Day on Monday, so I have to put up some fireworks photos. We didn't go to a display but could see some of the Air Force Academy display from our house, and that's how I got these photos, all handheld with a telephoto lens.

Hawaii 1997 Revisited (1)

Going through my old scans I've found more photos from our 1997 trip to Hawaii; I posted a few several years ago but I've learned a little about photo editing and can salvage some that I didn't want to post before. If I remember correctly, this one was taken on the north shore of Oahu.
