The Green Line

The green line is Indian Garden as seen from the south rim of the Grand Canyon.

Since it is Memorial day I am posting pictures of the Grand Canyon Cemetery where there is a memorial to the people who were killed when two passenger planes collided over the canyon in June of 1956.

The cemetery is located behind
The Shrine Of The Ages where
I took this picture. I didn't know
that the ray of sunshine was so
bright until I uploaded to my

It's A Dog Day lll

Sunday at Woofstock 2014 there was lots of dogs playing at the Prescott Valley Civic Center.

These two young Afghan Hounds were excited to be there.

And one of my favorites,
a Papillon, also known as a
Continental Toy Spaniel, was
happy and very friendly.

It's A Dog Day

Sunday was "Woofstock 2014" at the Prescott Valley Civic Center. There were demonstrations, adoptions  and lots of dog fun.

Face painting for the kids, this little guy looked good as a tiger.

Jake was there, he is one of Prescott Valley Police Department's canine officers. Jake is a Belgian Malinois and very handsome.

More dogs tomorrow!

Room With A View

The Firehouse Kitchen was a great place to watch the bike race a couple of weeks ago, it was close to the finish line, and they have good food too.

Guard Duty

This pretty male oriole likes to hide in the lilac bush and wait for other birds to come to the hummingbird feeder and then jump out at them and scare them away.
I guess he thinks it belongs to him alone. Sure is fun to watch but I thwarted his attempts by adding
another feeder.

This is the beautiful Mother's Day card I received from my son and daughter-in-law.
What makes this more special is that my daughter-in-law makes these cards herself!!!

Happy Mother's Day!

Driving To Alaska....Minter Gardens

If you are ever close to Hope, British Columbia, and have plenty of time for a long walk, go to Minter Gardens. If you like flowers and beautiful landscapes, you wont be disappointed. 

Our last day in Canada we had a long walk at Minter Gardens. What a beautiful place, even in the rain. 

Two months and 8000 miles after leaving home, we made it back home once again.
 We did this trip to Alaska in 2002. We enjoyed this trip and always planned to go back but so far haven't.
But we still can hear Alaska calling us back.
This concludes the "Driving To Alaska" series.
