    wonderful contrast with the plants and sky/rainbow


  4. Those rainbows look so close! Lovely sky shots, as always!

  5. Good Morning Dawnie... GREAT photos and beautiful rainbow! You're in a great place for taking pictures... I especially love the last picture because it looks like the cactus is praising the sun. Have a great day & travel safe!

  6. Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. I bet in the back of your mind you were thinking..."That should keep Richard busy with captions for a while"

  7. Girl, you do find the BEST rainbows! If anyone ever finds that pot of gold at the end of it, surely it will be you and Jeff!

  8. The rainbow is excellent. It looks so close---did you get the pot of gold? Yes you did--the sunset. MB

  9. Love the rainbows, a double gift indeed, with a golden sunset at the end. I like the new capsite with a spectacular view.

  10. Looks like your new campsite pulled out all the stops to welcome you.

  11. Some great photographs there. Like your style, happy tripping.

  12. WOW! Mother Nature sure put on a magnificent show for you! Incredible scenery!

  13. How beautiful! That last photo is great. It look as though the cactus is praying to the setting sun.

  14. Howdee all,
