Weekly Photo Challenge – Creepy

Last Christmas, Peter and I travelled to Curaçao for a scuba trip. One evening, the resort hosted a grilled fish dinner in the beach. Here’s what greeted us as we walked into the seaside restaurant. Seemed a little creepy to me. For those of you who don’t know, that big fish head is the remains of a yellowfin tuna. It was delicious, however.

Weekly Photo Challenge – Beneath Your Feet

Glory at the Top

Or, in this case, tires. Here’s a shot of my wonderful new Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk. She’s affectionately named Glory and it was a glorious day when we took her to her first Jeep Jamboree last Saturday and ascended to the top of Montezuma Basin near Aspen, Colorado. This trail is rated difficult and she came through without a scratch (well there were a few scratches on the skid plates underneath, but that’s what the plates are there for).

Weekly Photo Challenge – Inspiration

Montezuma Basin

Montezuma Basin

I’m fortunate to live in a place that inspires on a regular basis, but this past weekend was particularly so. My husband Peter, my sister Becky and I took my new Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk on a road trip to Snowmass, Colorado for the Roof of the Rockies Jeep Jamboree. We spent two days exploring the off-road trails of the region with other Jeep enthusiasts. This is a shot of Montezuma Basin. It’s an area, like many in the Rockies that attracted silver miners.

The gold streaks are mine tailings from the silver mines on the sides of the steep mountain face. And you can see the road we used to ascend the scree field to the top of the basin. Also, if you want to see a larger version of the shot, just click on the photo.

Here’s a shot of Becky standing by my Jeep. I like to name my cars and she had gone un-named for three months. On this trip, I was inspired to name her – Glory! Enough said…
