Waiting for the weekly photo challenge is getting longer and longer so, in the meantime, this travel challenge showed up. “Height” is the theme and here are my three choices, all from nature.  The first is from our recent visit to Muir Woods just outside San Francisco, the iconic redwoods.  The second is Devil’s Tower, Wyoming, an “an igneous intrusion or laccolith in the Black Hills near Hulett and Sundance in Crook County, northeastern Wyoming, above the Belle Fourche River.”  I would include a link but since the government is shut down, it appears the websites are shut down too. About that I’ll say nothing.  The third is outside Yellowstone National Park, also in Wyoming, on our way to Cody, Wyoming.  Enjoy a bit of the grandeur and height of nature!

    Stunning photos! I love how you framed the Devil’s Tower… you make the eyes travel and the rock formation look even bigger.

    You live in such a breathing takingly beautiful part of the world…great choices.

    • These are also all vacation photos, Georgia. Where we live is prairie country, beautiful in its own way, but without much natural height!

        Ah…I once lived in a desert country, no heights…now I live in a moutainous country…no sunsets! Memories are always there in both cases 😉 You do a great job with your camera!


      • There’s beauty in all those places, Georgia. My parents live in Arizona and the desert has a sparse beauty that you can’t find other places. Yes, memories are always there (hopefully good ones!) 🙂 I’m glad you enjoy the photos because I certainly enjoy taking and sharing them.

        Yes…deserts may not colorful maybe, but nice in their own way. I do enjoy so we both have fun! 🙂

    I cannot imagine living within such proximity to this beauty! Wonderful photos!

    • As I mentioned to Georgia, we don’t really live nearby but at least we get to see something similar each summer and we enjoy the more quiet beauty of the plains each day.
