Photo Friday: Random shots

 I didn't feel like putting together a proper post for this week, so I'm just going to share a few random photos from my recent trip to Colorado (I wasn't traveling frivolously, lest you wonder. I was delivering Eldest Son to Boulder to start graduate school. I admit that while I was there I took the opportunity to do some backpacking, though!).

A too-friendly deer

One of the millions of Colorado trees killed by bark beetles.

Virga--rain shafts that never reach the ground (though some very soon after this made the ground very wet indeed).

Nevada sunset

More Nevada sunsets

A bit of the burn area in Glenwood Canyon along I70 in Colorado. We were lucky that the freeway reopened a day before we headed back west. (Photo on my phone by Griffen Dempsey)

Train crossing the Bonneville Salt Flats

I promised you random! I think that delivers :)

  1. Great photos. It’s a wonderful country. Shame we humans mess it up!

    1. Absolutely! And right now, the consequences of climate change have huge fires burning in Colorado and California (plus, in too many cases, a bit of more localized human stupidity).

  2. Thanks! I enjoy taking a few kind of arty/abstract photos along with pretty scenery. And come to think of it, I should change the attribution on the photo of the fire area, because my son took that on my phone!
