If you’ve been a long time follower of mine, you know I love the Big Bend area of Texas. I have made many trips there, with several people we know.
On this trip, we were able to ascend Christmas Mountain. There is a gate with one key and only one driver is allowed through at one time. We discovered why. There is nowhere to pass, few places to pull over and nowhere to back up to. And in a few places, you will catch air with a wheel at a time.But the view from the top is priceless
Not quite to the top, but amazing just the same.
I love experimenting with my photos in several different apps on my iPad. Some pictures just lend themselves to this. Here’s some of my experiments.
This app is Glaze
This one is Pixlr

I have lots of fun with my apps. They have all kinds of options and .you can achieve many different looks, the fun is in experimenting.
Selfie in a gazing ball, the round bumps in the glass turn me into an abstract.
The orange glow of the sunset in the clouds with a plane and its contrail in the middle.
The elements, Earth, Air, Fire, Water, are on display in Yellowstone National Park. But not quite in the obvious way.
The fire is the huge magma chamber underneath the caldera which superheats the water into highly pressured steam which erupts with great violence in the geysers. The breeze blows with the smell of sulfur and pushes the steam around until it dissipates.
I give you Old Faithful.
And Grande Geyser
