Zion Nation Park Snapshots II   2 comments

Zion National Park--2 blogOur road trip in late April took use through Zion National Park. This was the fourth time in the park, however, unlike the others, we didn’t spend time in the park. The snapshots were acquired by stopping along the route through the park. (Click or touch, depending on your device, to see the images in a slideshow format.)

“Your photography is a record of your living – for anyone who really sees. You may see and be affected by other people’s ways, you may even use them to find your own, but you will have eventually to free yourself of them. That is what Nietzche meant when he said, ‘I have just read Schopenhauer, now I have to get rid of him.’ He knew how insidious other people’s ways could be, particularly those which have the forcefulness of profound experience, if you let them get between you and your own personal vision.”

– Paul Strand

Passing Through Sedona On Way To Monumant Valley   1 comment

Sedona Snapshots (April 22, 2018) by kenne

A week ago today we began a short trip that would take us to several places we have been before, the exception being Monument Valley in the Navajo Nation. Heading north on I-10, we took I-17 north to Flagstaff out of Pheinox with a little detour over to Sedona and the Oak Creek Canyon. After a brief stop in Sedona, we began the beautiful drive on the twisting Oak Creek Canyon 89A highway.

Our next stop was Flagstaff, just long enough to top off the gas tank, before heading on the Tuba City located in the Painted Desert on the Navajo Nation, where we planned to spend the night and check out the old Tuba City Trading Post.

White Mountain Road TripJoy and Kenne in the City of Rocks State Park, New Mexico, July 28, 2012

Let’s go

Let’s go, let’s go,
The road is waiting.

Let’s go, let’s go,
Time is wasting.

Let’s go, let’s go,
The heart is yearning.

Let’s go, let’s go,
The brain is questioning.

Should I, should I not
Should I be, should I act
Should I, should I
Being or doing?

Let’s go, let’s go,
The pipes are playing.

Let’s go, let’s go,
The light is dancing.

Let’s go, let’s go,
The child is calling.

Let’s go, let’s go,
The brain is questioning.

Should I, should I not
Should I be, should I act
Should I, should I
Being or doing?

Let’s go, let’s go,
Tomorrow is awakening.

Let’s go, let’s go,
The times are changing.

Let’s go, let’s go,
The wind is pushing.

Let’s go, let’s go,
The brain is questioning.

Should I, should I not
Should I be, should I act
Should I, should I
Being or doing?

Yes! Yes! Yes!
Let’s go, let’s go.

Some Moments May Not Be Worth Capturing!   4 comments

New Orleans Trip_2014 12 27_0388_blogHow much longer before we will be there?

New Orleans Trip_2014 12 27_0389_blogI’m not having fun! I’m tired! I’m hunger! Let’s stop now!

New Orleans Trip_2014 12 27_0399_blogThis is not where I wanted to eat! I don’t like the food! 

New Orleans Trip_2014 12 27_0400_blogI will disrupt others trying to eat. Time for a selfie.

and give attention to know understanding.”

Goin’ Up To Cripple Creek To Have Some Fun   Leave a comment

Cripple Creek, Colorado (June 16,2014) — Images by kenne (Click on any of the tiled images to see larger view in a slideshow format.)

After leaving Ft. Collins, our next planned overnight stop was to be Colorado Springs. However, as we neared the Pike’s Peak area, I noticed a highway sign to Cripple Creek and thinking, “goin’ up t’ Cripple Creek, goin’ on the run; goin’ up t’ Cripple Creek t’ have a little fun.” So, we took the highway around Pike’s Peak over the Cripple Creek, an old mining town with probably more casinos per captia than anywhere in America.

Maybe we will do Colorado Springs and Pike’s Peak some other time.

I got a gal at the head of the creek
Goin up t’ see her ’bout the middle of the week
Kiss her on the mouth, just as sweet as any wine
Wraps herself around me like a sweet potatoe vine

Goin’ up t’ Cripple Creek, goin’ on the run
Goin’ up t’ Cripple Creek t’ have a little fun
Goin’ up t’ Cripple Creek, goin in a whirl
Goin’ up t’ Cripple Creek t’ see my girl

Girls up on Cripple Creek about half grown
Jump on a man like a dog on a bone
I’ll roll my britches up to my knees
An’ wade in ol’ Cripple Creek when I please

Goin’ up t’ Cripple Creek, goin’ on the run
Goin’ up t’ Cripple Creek t’ have a little fun
Goin’ up t’ Cripple Creek, goin in a whirl
Goin’ up t’ Cripple Creek t’ see my girl
