These doors are typical doors in buildings constructed in the mid 1800’s.

The doors on a saloon should be swinging doors. Maybe these doors at this saloon in Sutter, CA once were.

We started with a bathroom. It only seems appropriate to end with one. This is the public restroom door in the town of Placerville.

Krista at WordPress has chosen the topic “Off-Season” as the topic of this week’s photo challenge. Here in the Sierra Foothills this June, we are experiencing weather that is not typical and is off season. June is usually hot and dry. Well, we have the heat, but we have had rain. Here are some photos taken recently of this odd off-season weather.

Since these off-season storms have blown through, we have returned to clear sunny days and hot temperatures. Today will be in the high 90’s. We are melting here!

Have a great Friday and thank you for stopping by! Be well… ^..^

Lingnum Draco over at WordPress has chosen the topic “Vivid” for this week’s photo challenge. So, let’s head into my world of what vivid means to me. I hope that you enjoy the photos!

When we were on the “Big Island” of Hawai’i, these little guys stuck out with their bright colors.

There are lilies that grow around the area, and the contrast in colors fit this week’s challenge too.

Michelle W. over at WordPress has chosen the topic “On the Way” for this week’s photo challenge. She asks that we, “Share a shot of something you saw, did, or experienced on the way: a photo not of your destination, but of an interesting thing along the way. Show us something stunning others might have missed, or find some unexpected beauty in a mundane moment. Maybe we can all start looking at the in-betweens a bit differently!”

Ready for some shots taken on the way? Let’s head out.

The first thing that came to mind was the flight we took to Hawai’i. There was an amazing storm happening on the ocean and this view is with us being up in the air at 35,000 feet.

The next that came to mind was the day on our cruise we headed into Glacier Bay.

As we drove up Highway 5 in the central valley of California, on our way home from a trip, the mirages on the road were amazing.

On our way to Red River, New Mexico we drove by the Rio Grande.

Celebrating the birthday of a very good friend, we made our way on this special day to Yosemite National Park, a park he had never been to before. On the one lane road, I snapped this photo. El Capitan is center left, and Half Dome in the center.

This last photo was on our way into Red Rock Canyon near “Lost” Vegas. The beauty of the mountains had us stopping many times on the way. The colors were amazing!

Thanks for coming along! I hope that you enjoyed my photos of being on the way! :) Be well… ^..^
