Autumn in the Smokeys


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

Autumn colors came to the mountains this year a couple of weeks later than usual.  When My Beautiful Bride and I set out to see the colors, we found plenty of green among the trees.  But there were still some glorious sights to see, such as this view from Newfound Gap Road near Gatlinburg, Tennessee.

Wyoming Morniing Sky

Betsy and I started home before dawn after our trip out west earlier this year. We had been on the road for quite a while when dawn started to break out in Wyoming. We just had to stop and get pictures of the sky and the Hoback River as the sun announced a glorious day ahead.

Chihuly at Biltmore

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

In September Betsy and I went to Biltmore to see the Chihuly exhibit at night.  We arrived late in the afternoon, which is when I got this photo of “Sole d’Oro”, which was located on the lawn in front of the house.  The sun was directly behind the glass sculpture when I got this photo, which caused the sculpture to glow in the light.

Beartooth Scenic Highway

One of the highlights of our recent western trip (both figuratively and literally) was our drive from Red Lodge, Montana, to Yellowstone National Park on the Beartooth Scenic Highway.  The scenery was gorgeous all along the way.  This is a photo I got with my iPhone at the first overlook we reached.  Needless to say, we made many more stops on this particular journey.

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

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

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.
