Grand Canyon, North Rim

I’ve always wanted to see the North Rim. I’ve heard it’s even more beautiful than the South Rim but now that I’ve seen both, I find them equally breathtaking. I don’t know how to compare overwhelming beauty with overwhelming beauty. I don’t have a favorite. So, I drove south from Utah into Arizona. Arizona holds a special place in my heart, especially the high mountain … Continue reading Grand Canyon, North Rim

From Bryce Canyon to Zion National Park

Morning in Utah high country. Just outside of the park I saw these bison. It’s where the buffalo hang out. This old truck was just outside the park, too. Cool, isn’t it? Almost immediately as I drove into the canyon I had the thought that my pictures weren’t going to do this place justice and they don’t.

Bryce Canyon National Park

Driving south from Salt Lake City, I passed tall, snow-covered mountains shortened by clouds and fog.

It’s been a few … Continue reading To No Cal, So WA and back again

It turned out that Granada was truly a lovely city that, like so many others, I’d love to see again and spend much more time in.I’ll have some pictures from around Granada for … Continue reading The Alhambra ~ Granada, Spain

Córdoba, Spain

I took a bus from Tarifa and, passing through the beautiful olive-tree-covered Andalusian countryside, headed to Córdoba. My intention was to see as many places as I could (afford) on my way north to Madrid where I’d catch my flight back to the States. I’d seen pictures of the Mosque-Cathedral of Córdoba and desperately wanted to see it for myself, so this lovely city had … Continue reading Córdoba, Spain
