This guy has a town and a snazzy museum named after him! A hologram of Buffalo Bill Cody greets you at the door of his museum in Cody, Wyoming. This legendary frontiersman and entertainer of the Wild West days gained and lost several fortunes in his lifetime. To see the entire exhibit for today’s challenge, go to Leanne Cole’s blog.
Click to see full image. This racetrack in Death Valley National Park, California features rocks, not cars! Rocks that tumble onto this dry lake bed creep along and leave clearly visible tracks behind. It was considered a mystery for many years, but scientists now believe they are nudged along by large sheets of ice that break off and slide around after a winter freeze begins to melt. The park requires scientists to bring in their own (comparable) rocks for experiments rather than use the ones that have been cast onto the surface through erosion.
You can still see a lot of rural America while driving down a country road. I love the barely visible light coming through the barn window and the vegetation blocking the barn entrance. It makes you wonder what’s inside. To see all the monochromes in the challenge including a beautiful one by our host, go to Leanne Cole’s blog.
This three-tiered falls in the state of Washington is the tallest in a chain of waterfalls tumbling from peaks in the Cascade Mountain Range.
A light Colorado snow fell during the night and, in the morning, there was a shallow blanket of white on the ground and a gentle dusting on the tree branches. To see all the entries in today’s challenge, go to Australian photographer Leanne Cole’s blog.
This is one last image from Wyoming’s Yellowstone National Park, at least for the time being. Maybe I want to look at something warm because yesterday we had an amazing hailstorm here in Southern California and my yard looked as if it had snowed. But at Yellowstone, regardless of the weather, there are always warm volcanic gases and steam escaping from vents in the earth.
Here is another natural abstract of a hot spring at Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming. Temperatures in the springs promote the growth of a variety of heat-loving microbes, which reflect different colors.
