Alien Brain?


Or giant mushroom?
While taking a hike in the country with friends in Colorado, they showed us these giant mushrooms. They were bigger than any I had ever seen. I don't know what kind of mushroom it is so we didn't bring them home for lunch.

Round Up

Rounding up the herd to separate the cows from their calves can be a noisy business. While visiting friends on a Colorado cattle ranch we watched as the herd made its way to the holding pens where the calves were loaded into trailers and hauled away. Then the cows were turned back out into the pasture.
 A cow will call for her calf for days after they are separated.

This breed of cattle originated in France and is called Limousine.

Astronauts still train here today.

Meteor Crater

The other big hole in the ground in Northern Arizona is Meteor Crater. From this picture that I took, it's hard to tell exactly how big the crater is. To get an idea of it's size, you could fit twenty football fields on its floor and it is sixty stories deep. 


To get a better idea of the size of the crater, I took a picture of a picture in the museum of a view from the air of the crater with the road, parking lot, museum and other buildings on the rim in the lower part of the picture. 

The picture above is of the largest fragment of the meteor that was found. 
This large fragment is on display at the museum.

Flying


Part of Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University's "Wings Out West" air show last Saturday at the Prescott airport, some fancy flying and parachuting was fun to watch but not that easy to photograph.
