Twenty Two Thousan Words

OK I'm way too busy to write that many words but a picture is worth a thousand words...ergo...

Pictures

SCENES FROM RED ROCK NATIONAL PARK








RETURN OF THE CAMERA SHERPA!

Yes, younger brother had me reprising my camera sherpa role.





HAIL STORM STILLS



The temperature dropped around 25 degrees in just minutes
AROUND HOOVER DAM

The big ass new bridge that channels traffic away from the dam

A really poor picture with all kinds of foreground distractions of the dam

SATURDAY IN ALBUQUERQUE

It was raining all night (yeah according to the news this week we got as much rain as we got the rest of the year)

In the morning there was snow on the mountain

It was the last day of the balloon fiesta. And lo and behold there's a balloon coming right down our street! We never get balloons up here!

Hey how come this picture is sideways?




And away down the street




Footnote: Anyone who is really into photography has to...HAS TO come to the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta at least one (I'm talking to you Mrs. Photo St. Paul)

AND ON TO HIKING

Snow in the mountains - got to go hiking


Hmmmm. What kind of opportunities does winter hiking offer de-I's Sandia Mountain Outfitters

I swear, some day we will come to ABQ in October for the balloon fiesta. Also, once when it is warm weather damn it.

Snow already? Still you look happy.

Awesome pictures!

It's a high of 88F today in Miami...

The one you labeled a "really poor picture" actually appeals to me.

The balloon came down your street? There is a balloon company just east of us and we often see a few balloons in the sky during the summer months, though usually not close enough to photograph or anything. So I should come your way, then... ? :-) That WOULD be VERY fun to photograph!

Excellent pics! Someone mentioned the balloon festival and I said "been there, done that." Ha!

Have they opened the new road by the dam so you don't actually have to drive OVER the dam?

de-I said...

Yes Joe, the main road is now over the big ass bridge and they discourage traffic from going over the dam.

Very awesome. I would love to head out that way one of these days to see all of this in person. The pictures you post of that area are always gorgeous.

Ooh the next to last picture is my favorite!

There is a hot air balloon race in St. Louis every year!
