I spent the day weaving and hiking and photographing nature.
Day two was beautiful. There was a thunderstorm threat in the late afternoon but it decided to skip us campers.
After a lovely day of fishing and hiking we roasted hot dogs for supper. Yep steak one night, hot dogs the next. Dan added chili to his dog. The temperature was around 55 degrees so we slept all cozy again. Tomorrow is our last day then home for a couple weeks and off to Gulf Shores for Fourth of July.
Finally the COVID veil has lifted somewhat. We were able to take Calypso on the road to Big Ridge State Park. The park is about 25 miles north northwest of Knoxville TN. It sits on Norris Lake. The campsites are on a small peninsula. The water level is higher than normal as you can see in the photos. This is the longest distance Calypso has traveled, about 4 hours. Saturday we will pack up and head up to Kingsport TN to Warriors Path State Park. I hope you enjoy the photos that will follow.
Dan and I visited Death Valley National Park last January. We only had a few hours there and it definitely deserves more time to explore this eerie Martian like landscape.

A few years ago Lynn and I stayed in a lovely little cabin in Dalonega, Georgia. It was on some property outside of town and had a beautiful creek with chairs and a fire pit. Growing all along the creek were several varieties of mushrooms, so armed with my camera and close up lens I decided to take a closer look at these fairy dwellings. Here are some before and after, enjoy.
A few years ago we went to New Orleans to surprise Lynn for our 65th birthday. Our birthdays are exactly one week apart and I’m the oldest! We actually flew in on my birthday and my sweet children had the most beautiful vase of flowers waiting in the room. I had a lot of fun playing with the colors and textures. When experimenting with Prisma it’s crazy how one click can change the look.
I took this photo somewhere in South Dakota. Notice how the little prairie dog doesn’t mind sharing his space with his bison buddy. We should all be able to coexist.
Still using Prisma I changed this photo of a lone bike on a street in New Orleans.
