Photo Friday: Downward

Several years ago, Dan and I, along with my good friend Barbara, took a trip to the Grand Canyon. I took this photo at the South Rim of a group of tourists with a guide. It’s really hard to portray the Grand Canyon in photos. It’s so majestic and almost seems to surround you, even when you’re standing on the rim, that it’s easy to understand why it’s one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World.

This is my contribution to Photo Friday. This week’s theme is Downward.

Photo Friday: Meditation

In 2005, Dan and Barbara and I took a long-weekend trip to the Grand Canyon. While we were there, we stayed in Sedona, Arizona, and went hiking on a trail to Cathedral Rock. We didn’t know this would be there, too, but we came upon Buddha Beach, a place where people pile up river rocks so they resemble a Buddhist temple. We sat on a large rock on the opposite side of the river, ate a snack and took pictures.

On the Continental Divide with Barbara and Liz

This is my submission for the Photo Friday challenge for this week: Friend.

Barbara and I went to visit Liz, who was living in Fort Collins, CO, for two months, working on her Ph.D. While there, we took a horseback ride to the Continental Divide, 8,400 feet up. Great fun :-)

This was the view behind us:
