Camera Broke

animals, Craftsy, quilts, Travel

Luckily I guess – my camera broke while we were at Richfield, I am a point and shoot type of photographer, nothing special for my needs other than a good zoom lens and we found one at Wal-Mart – so from here out I do believe all the photos are with the new camera which does have a better zoom lens then the old one did.  To bring you up to date we are now in Page Arizona and it is October 9 in the evening as I write this for the morning.  Our internet was so poor in Bryce Canyon that I finally just gave up trying to post anything.  Here it is better but not perfect.

After Richfield we left for Bryce Canyon National Park – I took so many photo’s it is crazy – how to pick out the best LOL – impossible.   Sadly our first two days were rainy days.  We took a drive one of those days to the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument – these were some of the things along the way – edited: this flower’s common name is “Mexican Hat” I don’t know the technical name.


A visitor center with a little quilt that could be doll or baby size


This is the road we followed – followed the numbers to 25 at Torrey and then turned back – it was getting rainier and we had a bit of a drive back through high mountains – didn’t want any snow! it had dropped to about 37 going across them.


A cute little lizard that greatly resembled our brown lizards at home but this guy was tiny – only about 4 inches long – zoom lens worked great!!



See the cloudy skies!


Was surprised to see flowers blooming still


Our big game sighting of the day was in open range up in the mountains – someone better come get these cattle soon – it is getting cold up there!

    Love the pics your new camera takes… can you share the type you got.. show a pic of it?? Love where you are but don’t envy the cold weather at all.. much prefer my Florida weather year round! But I do enjoy traveling “with” you virtually… 🙂 Thanks for buying a new camera to continue memorializing while you share your days memories with us all! Kathi

    I wonder what that red flower is in the first shot…it’s exquisite!

    I got a chuckle out of your “big game” photo. I wonder what kind of flower that is in the first picture? And of course my eyes perked up when I saw that little quilt! 😉

    I am loving seeing all of your pictures and hearing about your travels. We live in North Carolina, but have been lucky enough to get to visit some of the places you have been. You have also been a few places we have not yet been to, but these places are in our future plans. Have fun and be careful as you travel:)

    Great pictures with your new camera. That was quite a road trip, you covered a lot of miles. It is 41 here this morning, frost warning for the hilly sections. Afternoons have been beautiful, high 60’s.

    We took the same road! So much fun to see you trip pictures, I wish we were still there.

    Ahhh, now you’re getting to my favorite park! I’ve never been there from the drive you’re showing — we’ve always come down 89 — one of these days I’m going to follow your map!
