From The Sky

This week's Skywatch Friday post has no sky, just some stuff that fell from it last night. We get huge changes in weather from day to day this time of year - it's usually beautiful but once in a while a change moves through. So on the way to work this morning I took this photo in a neighbor's yard.

Rock City Bridges

Here are the last photos from my series on Rock City, this time focusing on bridges.
It's fun to walk on the trails across these bridges, whether they're stone or wood.
It was a good visit to this tourist attraction!

Zoo View (1)

For Skywatch Friday, here's a view from the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo in Colorado Springs. You'll feel like you're in the sky if you ride this chairlift!

Rock City Views

Next in my series of photos from Rock City, Georgia are some views.
The views are impressive but I'm not convinced that you can see seven states as they claim.
There's also a nice waterfall in the park.

Rock City!

When driving in northern Georgia or eastern Tennessee, you'll see lots of roadside advertisements for Rock City, and we'd heard it was worth a visit.
It is certainly a unique place with trails wandering around huge rocks.
We definitely enjoyed it, and I'll have a couple more posts from it!

Peak Moods (10) - Beautiful

Peak Moods shows photos of Pikes Peak taken from my front porch, always very recent. This one was taken on Sunday morning after the recent snows (we had another 9 inches / 23 cm yesterday, but it's almost all gone now).

Finally Some Snow

While the mountains had plenty of snow, here in the foothills we had the warmest, driest winter I can remember since I moved to Colorado. But finally we've had some snow, about 20 inches (51 cm) in the last week and a half including one fall of 11 inches (28 cm). And there's more on the way this week.
Nobody's complaining about the moisture as it reduces wildfire danger.
And it certainly makes the neighborhood pretty!
