TRAVEL THEME: ANCIENT

March 2, 2014

RED MOUNTAINS OF SEDONA I hope you don’t mine seeing these photos again.  I posted them when I took my trip to the Grand Canyon two years ago. “The canyon walls in Sedona reach about 2,000 feet, but they contain evidence of this area´s geological history as far back as 300 million years. Their composition […]

UNIQUE HOMES

February 26, 2014

While visiting Arizona I spotted this unique home sitting in the hills of Sedona.  The house is rumored to be owned by a famous actor.

DARK WOODS

When life feels like you are surrounded by a forest of trees, that are hidden in the darkness.

I’ve visited and toured their home, enjoyed a home cooked meal, seen their beautiful landscapes, taken an Amish buggy ride, visited their school and learned a […]

SNOW TRACKS

THE SNOW TRACKS Five boys, playing in the woods one winter day, decided to see who could make the straightest set of tracks in the snow.  They were very careful to put one foot directly in front of the other, but when they had crossed the clearing, one track was curved, one track was crooked, […]

WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: GRAND

December 7, 2013

THE GRAND CANYON *** *** *** *** I could never forget the sight and feelings of awesome wonder I felt when I visited the Grand Canyon for the first time last year. The photos I took of that experience does not do justice to the grandness of the scene before me. Our God did perform […]
