Register Cliff, Wyoming





"Register Cliff", Wyoming". I hope you can see the signatures, for once what we call today "graffiti" is art & a true masterpiece of all the folks who were traveling the "Oregon Trail". After reading the signs there we found that the black hole in the shot there is where they would keep their items to keep them cool, a fridge of sorts. Beth ( :

That kind of refrigeration wouldn't travel very well, though . . too bad we can't send some coolers back in time for those brave people . . . maybe some peanut butter, and . . what else would be pack for them? Wouldn't it be super fun to send a 21st Century Care package to those travelers??? How surprised they would be . . and, would they have fun imagining people of the future visiting the idea of them in their cool cave . . . love & love, -g-

How fascinating that people have been writing there names on things since way back when. Proof that graffiti is NOT new. ;)
What a fascinating place that must have been to visit. So cool to see those Oregon Trail connections.

Hi Beth...

I just read your comment/question regarding photo watermarks. I use a software program to make them. Paintshop Pro. I can design my own with graphics and text then save them as PSP tubes then...use the same over and over again.

I'm sure there are free sites out there that will allow you to make a watermark and save them to your computer to copy and paste into your images.

And....don't let anyone dishearten you about the use of a watermark/copyright. They're YOUR photos. And the purpose is to discourage stealing or using an image on their site that isn't their's to begin with.

This would be really interesting to see in person. Reminds me of "Newspaper Rock," one covered in Native American petroglyphs. I think it's in Utah.
That's really interesting! The US is so much earlier colonised than Canada.

The Loveless Cafe, Nashville, Tennessee

"Fried chicken and biscuits have been a part of Loveless Cafe’s history for more than sixty years. In 1951, Lon and Annie Loveless began serving them out the front door of their home to travelers who passed by on US Highway 100, the then primary route between Nashville and Memphis, Tennessee." (for more info about the cafe "see here".

"The Loveless Cafe", (615)-646-9700, 8400 Hwy 100 Nashville, Tennessee. We are 40 feet from the tip of our F150 Ford pick up truck to the end of our Casita travel trailer ... so getting in there took some work, you can be long but side to side you better not be too wide ...they got it packed in there folks. There is a big back parking lot but still, Watch yourself!! The wait to get into the restaurant was like almost a 2 hour wait, Beth doesn't wait for food. HELL NO! We got it to go and it was quicker than you would have wait if you waited in the restaurant, just saying!! We got not sure of the proper name, it was chicke…

Briery Creek Lake, Farmville, Virginia

Taking a break from our trips, to talk about a recent kayaking trip. We have had so much rain here in Virginia in the month of May. It has been so green. The funny thing is how the weather folks keep saying we are in a drought??! WHAT??! So on Monday May 9th, we took a day trip to "Briery Creek Lake", Farmville, VA. At this area there was a sign about "Trophy Largemouth Bass", so if you are fan, you might wanna check out. We are not fisherpeople, just love the kayaking experience. It was a gorgeous day! I was trying to get the picture of the osprey, the water was thinking otherwise, but I did ok... in the video below you will hear birdies, I did try to capture the osprey, but the silly bird stopped singing, it was such an interesting sound. chirp? tweet? Why does nature not working me with me, please?


Please enjoy this vlog of that day. Thanks, for stopping by, hope you enjoy the trip. Beth ( ;

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  ( :
