Traveling to a “Snowbird” Location

When picking a place to travel to or a “Snowbird” location you have to be ready for it not to meet all your expectations. We have a get-away house in Las Vegas. We went there to get out of the cold; -15 degrees where we are from. I love snow but not for 5 months. I start to feel trapped. Thus a get-away place. Las Vegas is supposed to be warm but there was ice on our pool at noon today. I love Las Vegas but I didn’t expect it to be so cold. I might be looking for someplace warmer yet.

Travel Illusion Photography

Another fun thing we like to do is take pictures that look like an optical illusion. This one was in Bryce Canyon. I got low enough with the camera that when Gaylan jumped you couldn’t see the ground.

I took another one of my granddaughter holding a tree. I did extend the trunk of the tree in Photo Shop so it sat in her hand.
