More Photos from our Hikes
Goshen Swinging Bridge
All I can say is this bridge is old and way too high to suit me! This is the first time I have been with the family while shooting it, though I have posted shots of it from a different perspective in the past.
This is what it look likes as you start across.
It does not bother the kids at all, and Eloise loves it!
These wires are rusty and old!
You all know how I love to photograph simple and mundane gadgets, nuts, and bolts that do big jobs. I was determined to get these shots even though everyone else was walking ahead of me shaking it more and more with each step. Buddy had to lead a hike up on another mountain, so he did not get to go on this adventure.
I think this shot tells it all....yes, I was white knuckling it. Somehow I managed to pull off this shot, but my legs were trembling at the time. Gripping a swinging bridge with one hand while clicking the shutter of a Canon Rebel XSi with the other one leaves much to be desired.
The Hike up above our House
(This is going to make you all laugh!)
To get to the gate-fence I posted for "Friday Fences," you have to cross Kerrs Creek. Since we have had so much rain lately the water is up, I didn’t have the option of walking from rock to rock to get across. They were well under water. Here we go....

Buddy took this lovely shot, God bless him. You see Eloise and the guys waiting for me on the other side and not coming to Mom/Baga. It was our bachelor friend who came to the rescue, but it backfired. He grabbed my right arm, and I screamed in pain...the old arthritis did not like that movement at all. It took me quite a good bit of time, but I did finally get across, and I DID IT BY MYSELF, THANK YOU VERY MUCH!
When are my male children aged 39 and 46 going to get the message their mother is now 72 and CANNOT do all the things she always did in the past with a smile? This was pure torture and my legs were black and blue the next day.
