Thanks Cheryl. Yes, it's cold here, -10C (14F).

Brrr, that's cold! We're still at our daughter's in OH and the temps are in the mid-upper 30s. Stay warm, and safe travels when you do get to leave for home.

That poor squirrel looks like someone grabbed him and stuck most of his tail into hair bleach. Maybe they thought he'd make a cute blond.

Throwing a couple of photos at you.

First is one from 35 years ago, 4 wheeling up in the Colorado Rockies:



Then one from this last summer north of Cody Wyoming on my way in the back door to Yellowstone Park:



And one from our trip to Africa in 2014 - helicopter view of Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe:

Wonderful pics Rick! I'm pretty sure I've been on two of those roads.

The second one is about 20 or 30 miles north of Cody. I drove up through Red Lodge, Montana, then over the Beartooth Scenic Highway and into the NE entrance to Yellowstone. A couple more from that drive:

Looking down from above a scenic overlook on the Montana side:

RP, those are poster-worthy shots! You could probably sell them to a travel agency.

Thanks for the comments. I've been shooting as a hobby on and off for 40 years. It's so much better now with digital images that I can develop on my computer instead of having to send them in for processing.

A couple more from Africa:

A herd of zebra crossing the Chobe River on the border between Botswana and Namibia. I'm on the Botswana side in Chobe National Park. Note the native huts in the distance.



This one is a leopard. We spent nearly an hour there shooting from several angles. The leopard wasn't going anywhere because it was guarding an impala carcass that it had taken the day before.

RP, the picture with the zebras has what looks like a cheetah or some other cat in the background running to make a catch. Or he is being chased by a lion. Beautiful pictures. Very talented.
