This is a longer view of the pic from yesterday.  I like the branches in the foreground, the lovely fluffy clouds in the sky, & the mountains.  It looks like that guy standing up had spotted me.

This is the boat dock at the Stevenson City Park & Mud Creek.  I have no idea who those people are, but they seem to be enjoying themselves.

Another Russell Cave pic.  This is a tree along the nature trail.  I love trees.  In our youth, a friend of mine was a photog & I was a poet, & we used to talk about driving around taking pictures of trees & writing poems about them & putting it together in a book.

Took this last year.  When Mapco bought out the Discount Food Mart they remodeled & replaced the deli case & hot foods (in high school I was a regular for the tater wedges & egg rolls) with KKC.  The sun always amuses me, so wanted to get a picture of it.

This picture was taken at Russell Cave‘s Native American Festival a couple of years ago.  It has always been my favorite.  He is a Cherokee hoop dancer who gave a demonstration.  It was a lot fun to watch.
