squirreling around at Red Rock Canyon





for you folks who normally shoot pics of critters, i really do say how the heck do you do it? you are really patient, have lots of time, or enjoy the wait? don't make noise, light as a feather, have lots of camouflage or what? 

this cute squirrel was totally into his treat. his early breakfast. he was completely ignoring me. i got my zoom on and BAM we have 4 shots. a bit the same, same angle, etc, i was afraid to move, that he/she would get bored of me staring at him/she and wonder off. but all different in my opinion, considering i am not a critter normal shooter. pics taken late August 2014.

Excellent shots of this devious little rascal! I don't do much of critter photography, at least as of yet.

This little guy is very cute. I don't do a lot of camera critters but most of what I've gotten has been via a long lens and luck. More luck than anything else.

He's a cutie. I love capturing critters. Sometimes it's tricky but patience pays off.

Nice shots. I am in amazement at the birder bloggers who have such great shots. I don't have the patience, nor the skill to do what they do.

I put out bird seed and watch from my window.

I'm thinking many people have super long-angle lenses, right? Is that what it's called when a camera can zoom in from a distance and still have high resolution?

Fine and very cute critter shots of this squirrel. I like how he appears to be in a fine place with which to enjoy his snack.

Loretta Lynn's Ranch, Hurricane Mills, Tennessee

"Loretta Lynn's Ranch", 8000 Highway 13 South, Hurricane Mills, Tennessee 37078. I have always loved Loretta Lynn's country style music. She is just a legend ...so I knew when the hubby suggested we stay in her campground, I was super excited. I assumed that when you would be staying at her campground, it would sort of be included in the stay price to see all her treasures and tours. Nope, to see anything of the museum or anything else, you would have to pay even more to see her home, museum or bus, etc. WHAT??!! So we walked around and saw what we could see for free, then headed to the campground. I am a very experienced camper ... I have stayed at really pricey campgrounds and very cheap campgrounds ... so we have been there done that, kind situation. So the price we paid I would have thought the campground would have been in better condition. & it was such a letdown that it was not that great. 
VERY SAD FACE. : (
These shots are great & they were FREE to s…

Point Lookout State Park, Maryland & area lighthouses

Where we stayed: Point Lookout State Park, Maryland

Fort Lincoln, located within Point Lookout State Park. The only original part that is still at the location is the white barrier wall, all buildings are new, I guess the weather and winds are rough on fort. 

Here is a vlog from that day of the sunset view from the state park & a coastline view from Fort Lincoln. I can so see why the fort was so in needs of repair, the winds there are so violent.

Cove Point Lighthouse
I will say that Maryland has pretty tough lighthouses to get to up close, usually you can get better shots, instead of through fences and all that jazz, but at least you can sort of see them? RIGHT??! Thanks for stopping by today. Hope you are well. Enjoy these views. Plan a trip soon, such a gorgeous area of Maryland. Beth  ( :

Grayson Highlands State Park & VA Creep Trail, Virginia

I was going to do 2 separate posts for this camping trip but it was only very quick weekend trip back in July of this year. Enjoy the vlogs from that day. We had a ball, such a great trip!!
1st part was our hike on Wilburn Ridge. 2nd day was our bike trip on the VA Creeper Trail. I think one of the most uncomfortable parts of the trip is riding in a huge van with people you have not a clue who they are... you just know that you are going to all be riding the trail. They van you up the mtn & you bike back to Damascus, VA. It is a 17 mile bike trip. Very easy. Not too much work at all.
One of our favorite state parks to camp at in VA is "Grayson Highlands State Park". We love this area 'cause you have the opportunity to bike the "Virginia Creeper Trail". Yes, we did make another hike adventure to "Wilburn Ridge". If you click each those names it will take you to our previous trip back in 2015. We took this trip in July of this year. What we love ab…
