High Mountain Doings

From 8200 feet along one side of the Upper Arkansas River Valley in central Colorado, my blog is about many things: travel including river and bicycle trips, and other experiences as well. The focus is on photography, not lots of text.

Patty Pushes Angelito

Angelito is Patty's grandson, who lives in Denver. He flew to/from North Carolina with us, as did his stroller. Here, Patty pushes him along, near the house of her sister and her sister's husband.

Denver, Atlanta, Greensboro Trip

Airport and city lights, taking off from Atlanta, not holding the camera very steadily, but it worked this time.

This appears to be Stone Mountain near Atlanta. If so, my dad and I landed at a small airport and slept near here during our 1960 flight around the country, at which time I was in high school. If this is in fact Stone Mountain, the area around it is considerably more populated
than it was then, which makes sense.

Waiting aboard the airliner at Denver International Airport for our flight to Atlanta, Georgia, and then on to Greensboro, North Carolina. The captain elected to have the airplane deiced before departure.

White Rim Trail, Canyonlands, Utah

The Green River from Hardscrabble Hill, where the road climbs well above the White Rim Standstone, up a very rough 4WD road.

The border of Canyonlands National Park

Traveling near the Green River, nearing the border of Canyonlands National Park.

The White Rim Trail, which runs downstream along the Green River in Canyonlands National Park, Utah, atop (except when it climbs higher over Hardscrabble Hill) the White Rim Sandstone.

Lunar Conjunction

A picture from my porch of the mountains, my garage roofline, the moon, and two planets that were in conjunction this evening. The planets were Jupiter and Venus. This will happen again in May, 2011.

Two White Rim Trail Photos

What a sunset happened while we were camped at Candlestick Camp on the White Rim Trail!

The Green River from near Candlestick Camp on the White Rim. The yellow tammies are partly from beetle kill and partly because this was November. The White Rim Sandstone is at river level several miles upstream, but here it is far above the river.
