Christmas Eve Morning 2011

25 Dec

This is the same picture I posted on my word blog only I crop and tweaked it a little with the program PrintShop for this blog.  This program is the only one I own that will let me crop and auto correct.  One day, I vow to purchase and more importantly learn how to use Photo Shop.  If you have Photo Shop and would like to tweak it for me I would love to see how it could really be.   You can find the original at Life is a bowl of kibble.  My only request is to not use this photo as your own, however, Photo Shop enhancement credit can be all yours.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Between

23 Dec

Between:

the lines is a path to our home,

a haven where the fireplace is always warming and hot chocolate is always on.

Family, friends and neighbors are always welcomed

***********************************************************************

Between:

the navigational beacons is the road to work,

where everyday is an adventure in human nature.

***********************************************************************

Between:

the trees is a little peace of mind,

where neighbors are always helping neighbors.

*********************************************************************

Between:

You and the other side is a downed tree. 

An ominous sight when traveling deep in the forest to deliver mail.

************************************************************************

Between:

the bottom branches and the ground are bowls in the snow,

where the deer and elk can rest and wait out the storm

Between:

you and me, I would not have it any other way.

I mistakenly posted my self portrait on my word blog Life is a bow of Kibble.  Click here if you would like to check it out.

This morning’s view was covered in white.  I hope you enjoy.  This was taken with the is5 Cannon, no edits or enhancements

A blankey of ice snuggles up to this lone pinecone

A day of shopping and Geo Caching lead me to view a wonderful site.

Osha Trail in Cloudcroft New Mexico Fall 2011.  We were out on another Geo Cache and, of course, we found it about 2 miles in.  Nice walk and beautiful colors.

Ominous

Last weekend My husband and I went Geo Caching

These are the pictures of that trip.  Note: These Pictures are not spoilers.  They are just sights we saw on the way to the cache

Steep hills and sharp drop offs

We were out in the middle of no where.  I found the cache at Heart Attack Canyon Trail.

I am ready for another cache run.

Silent Sundays – Geo Cache Adventure Finds

18 Sep

I live at the top of the southern end of the Sacramento Mountains.  To say water is hard to find here, would be an understatement.  So imagination my surprise when on a Cache run I discovered this beautiful find.  Bluff Springs,  Mayhill, NM

To a non resident of this wonderful mountain world, the little trickle of a stream must seem elfin.  But to me, it was like finding gold.  Then!

OOOOOHHHHH, what a treasure I have stumbled upon.  It left me wanting more.  I walk around the bend and I saw this!

A true treat for this misplaced ocean dweller. It took a few minutes to find the cache but we DID  find it under a log.  This picture is not a spoiler so don’t worry geo-cachers.  As we left Hubs grabbed a last minute shot.

Next week I will post another water find that to this date still excites me.
