Today we went to Lexington & Concord and visited the Minute Man park. Lucky for us it was the 50th anniversary of the park and every single old house was open to the public, even the ones not normally open. Here's a photo of one that's usually open anyway, though.
This is looking down and out a cave in the Narrows, Zion. Left is my brother, right, my dad. The cave didn't go back really far but it was pretty cool. You had to climb about ten feet up to get into it. We got pretty dusty. Someone had propped some driftwood up to the cave entrance so you could climb up & in. Dad and I were a bit behind the boys so we saw them from halfway down the canyon up in there. No bats, thank goodness.
The Fruita (UT) schoolhouse was opened in 1896, supported and payed for by the Mormon settlers. It had anywhere from 8 to 26 students attending classes at any one time. The building also served for as a community meeting place, a sunday school, and Saturday night social meeting place. - According to the little sign outside.
My father hiking the Narrows (Zion). The photo was almost black & white to start with, so I changed it. My brother insists it was better the other way, so here it is un-black & whited as well. I like it better in B&W.
UPDATE: My Dad just agreed with my little brother, so I'm going to switch them so color is on top, B&W on bottom (smaller). I would take it out but now you probably want to see it in B&W as well. Dad says that it looks cooler because it looks like a B&W photo, even though it isn't. Oh, and please note my dad has my little brother's shirt in his left hand.
I can't imagine getting this title any longer. Perhaps "Little Old Man Photographing Rain Over The Grand Canyon At Noon While His Wife Waits For Seats In The Diner And A Teenage Girl Takes A Photo Of Him, The Little Old Man Who Is Photographing Rain Over The Grand Canyon At Noon While His Wife Waits For Seats In The Diner And a Teenage Girl...." You get the picture. And no, I have no idea if his wife was waiting for seats to eat or even if he has a wife.
Mesa Verde wall and window... I have another photo I'll put up later of Mesa Verde. By the way, this is my photo blog, so most of the photos will be purely artistic.... not large overviews of what we saw. For instance, instead of a large photo showing all of Cliff Palace, I'm putting a window. If you want to see all of it, check my other blog, listed on the side. I hope to post an overview of our trip soon. Thanks!
I'm a homeschooled teen, I own and care for around 30 chickens and 10 ducks.Oh, and my mom just got goats. I also have 3 siblings (2 brothers, 1 sister), who mostly get along with the other animals. Wait, oops, did I say OTHER animals? *giggle* I meant, of course, each other. I'm a Christian (and that means I believe in Jesus Christ and have trusted on him as my Lord and Savior, believing that he was God's son, and that died for our sins and was raised from the dead on the third day. ). Oh, and I DON'T have a yellow hat. :)
