One photo a day challenge: Day 171. I have been unsuccessfully trying to grow milkweed in my yard for several years. I have scattered sees across my yard with no apparent success. People have even given me plants from their yards to try transplanting to our yard. That did not seem to take. On a few occasions milkweed plants have started to grow in my yard. On those occasions they have either… Read More
One photo a day challenge: Day 170. It has been a very enjoyable vacation. Sad to see it come to an end. Relaxing, reading, campfires, and our dog. Oh and the sunsets. The sunsets were beautiful. Thankfully our vacation closed out with this spectacular view.
One photo a day challenge: Day 169. Today was a mostly rainy day. We stayed hunkered down at our campsite. When the rain finally relented it was time for a fire. I positioned myself so the woods would be in the background of the photo. I took a few photos to get the composition I wanted. Then I sat and waited for the fire to spit out some sparks. This is the… Read More
One photo a day challenge: Day 168. Today we spent the day chasing waterfalls. We sought out waterfalls that were close the the road and had easy access. Our dog isn’t as mobile as she used to be. Brynn still loves to get out and explore. So we found ways to get her out doing what she loves. I bought a book detailing how to find a large number of waterfalls in… Read More
One benefit of relaxing and staying in one place on this trip is having multiple opportunities to photograph the same location. Sometimes the same location can look very different at different times of day. Even at the same time of day on different days the location can have a different look depending on different environmental factors. Today I photographed the lake at Higley Flow State Park during sunset for the third time… Read More
The other night might have been the worst thunderstorm we’ve endured while out camping, but today was the rainiest day. It rained on and off all morning. There wasn’t much relief in the afternoon either. Intermittent rains continued. Multiple times I started fires only to be thwarted by the return of the rain. We stayed at camp all day. Trying to make the best of it. Huddled up under our canopy to… Read More
Overnight into this morning we experienced a crazy thunderstorm. Wind, rain, thunder, and lightning. Probably the worst storm we’ve experienced while camping. We stayed dry in the tent. But when we emerged everything in our campsite was soggy. Despite putting everything we left out under our canopy. So we spent the day away from our campsite. We went out exploring the Adirondack region. One place we stopped was Buttermilk Falls in Long… Read More
Today we spent the afternoon down at the lake at Higley Flow State Park. The lake here is apparently connected to a large system of waterways. This large system of waterways appears to have its own tidal system. The water levels were different this afternoon than they were this morning. This exposed rocks, and tree limbs, and sand that previously was under water. It is nice to have scenery that will vary… Read More
We arrived at our campsite out in the Adirondacks. We set up and set out to relax. We don’t really do the sit back and relax thing very well for long periods of time. We stayed at our campsite the entire day except when I walked down to take this photo.
One photo a day challenge: Day 162. The beginning of sunset. The beginning of vacation. The beginning of an adventure. The beginning of rest and relaxation. The beginning of spending time in tents and hammocks. Spending time in forests and on trails. Spending time by the lake. Spending time photographing new places. We will be off camping for a week. I am not sure what the internet situation will be like. I… Read More
