Thought it’d be fun to share a few photos from a recent trip to Arizona. We flew into Tucson and spent a week in the South of Arizona. One of the places we managed to go and see was Saguaro National Park. The Park is named after the Saguaro Cactus which is the largest cactusContinue reading “Saguaro National Park, Arizona”
Took a trip earlier this summer to Virginia on the east coast of the USA. Thought it’d be fun to share a few photos from a day we spent in Washington DC. Washington is the Capital city of the USA, named for the first president George Washington.
Thought i’d share some photos i’ve taken over the last few years at a few different places around the USA. There’s not really a theme of the photos just a very random bunch which i thought i’d like to edit.
Taken a little while but got around to editing more photos from the Ruby Valley. I’ll share some images of the wildlife we encountered at the National Wildlife Refuge. I’ll do my best to identify the birds (with help from the National Geographic’s Complete Birds of North America book & the Audubon App) but i’llContinue reading “Ruby Lake National Wildlife Refuge, Nevada”
Took a Summer trip to Hagerman National Wildlife Refuge in North Texas. This is the first time visiting in the Summer and it didn’t disappoint. We arrived at the refuge at around 630am in time to watch the sunrise which was impressive to say the least. As always there were plenty of birds and otherContinue reading “Hagerman National Wildlife Refuge, Texas”
I thought i’d share a few photos from a recent trip to San Antonio. San Antonio is around 250 miles south of DFW. It was founded in the early 1700s as a Spanish Mission and Outpost. Whilst visiting you can definitely see the influence still of the Latin style architecture all around the city. SanContinue reading “Spanish Missions San Antonio, Texas”
This is probably one of the stranger places i’ve visited since moving to Texas. El Reno is a small town about 20 miles West of Oklahoma City. The only reason i’ve heard of it is due it suffering one of the most violent tornado’s in recorded history. In May 2013 a complex of thunderstorms developedContinue reading “El Reno, Oklahoma”
Having survived the worst of the big chill in Texas these last few days, we took a trip down to White Rock Lake to get out of the house and enjoy some fresh air by the lake. Unsurprisingly given the recent conditions the lake looked rather different to usual with a sheet of ice stretchingContinue reading “White Rock Lake , Texas (Winter Storm)”
Having spent so long in the DFW metroplex over the last few months, we decided to take a trip to East Texas and Caddo Lake State Park. Caddo Lake is a large lake and bayou on the state border of Louisiana and Texas, around 3 hours east of Dallas. It’s named after the native americanContinue reading “Caddo Lake State Park, Texas”
We decided to take a brief trip away from Elko for a few days. Due to Northern Nevada being so remote our only real options were to either head west to Reno, East back into Utah or head north into Southern Idaho. We decided to head north and go into Idaho. The journey to BoiseContinue reading “Twin Falls & Boise, Idaho”
