Sunset at Mormon Row

(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.  Clicking a second time will make it full-sized.)

There are many places in Grand Teton National Park from which to enjoy views of the setting sun.  One of our favorite places is Mormon Row.  This photo was taken in the Mormon Row Historical District just after the sun dropped behind the mountains.  It was a magical moment.

Above Ground at Mammoth Cave


(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.  Clicking a second time will make it full-sized.)

Most people go to Mammoth Cave National Park to explore the underground beauty.  But when Betsy and I visited Mammoth Cave with our friends Patti and Neal, we explored some of the above ground beauty of the park.  We enjoyed the quiet beauty of Sloans Pond one afternoon.  Peaceful and relaxing.

Betsy and Her Great-Granddaughter

I got this photo with my iPhone back in May when My Beautiful Bride met her great-granddaughter for the very first time.  I’m not sure, looking at the picture, who was happiest about this meeting.

Tulips in the Walled Garden

(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.  Clicking a second time will make it full-sized.)

Since Betsy and I have seasonal passes to Biltmore, we try to get there at least once each season.  And although we would be hard-pressed to pick a favorite season, it’s hard to beat Spring.  I got this photo of tulips in bloom in the Walled Garden in April of this year.

Crescendo Rose

After some unusual weather in February (warm) and April (cold) our roses are recovering and starting to bloom.  This beauty is Crescendo and I got this photo last month in May.

A Sure Sign of Spring

(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.  Clicking a second time will make it full-sized.)

Dogwood blossoms against a brilliant blue sky are a sure sign that it truly is Spring.  I got this photo in the Walled Garden at Biltmore House and Gardens.

The Sinks

(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.  Clicking a second time will make it full-sized.)

The Sinks is one of the more popular areas of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park along Little River Road.  Daredevils (mostly teenagers) dive into the stream below these rocks, although they are warned not to do so.  Fortunately it was too cold for daredevils when we were there in early April, but we did enjoy the beauty of rocks and water.
