I’ve been browsing through my Flickr accounts recently. It makes me marvel sometimes just how many people have viewed some pictures, and how others (including some of my own favorites) have hardly been touched. That’s ok. But I thought it might be fun to do a post with the most viewed / most liked (and therefore best?) pictures I’ve posted on Flickr expressly for sharing on this blog. Enjoy!
Actually, my absolutely most visited, most liked picture isn’t a picture at all. It’s a map I reposted…a map of Bisti Wilderness Area, with GPS coordinates, and totally written in German:
And the second most visited are of my camera:
And of course, there’s always pictures of van screens:
But I won’t bore you with those pictures. So, without further ado, here are the more scenic favorites.
Best Pictures on Anne’s Travels
A child’s bedroom at Genesee Country Village in Mumford, New York
A waterfall cascades out of a glacier on the side of Mount Baker, Washington. This picture was taken from “Camp Keiser” (aka, a rocky hillside meadow) at the end of the Ptarmigan Ridge Trail.
The Big Balanced Rock in Chiricahua National Monument, Arizona
Well, I wouldn’t have said this was my favorite, but I guess someone likes it! Taken from the Chasm Rim Trail on the north rim of Black Canyon of the Gunnison, Colorado, the picture features the famed “Pained Wall”.
An urn turned fountain at the Willowood Arboretum in Morris County, New Jersey
Ah! The West Side of the Tetons! They’re such a spectacular range, from both the Eastern, more popular side, as well as the Western side only visited by the locals. This picture was taken from the Table Mountain Trail.
Located along the rugged River Road in Big Bend National Park, Texas, the Mariscal Mine processed mercury ore mined from nearby hills for more compact transport.
A garden gate in Willowood Arboretum, Morris County, New Jersey
One of my favorite adventuresome hikes in the past few years, the route overland to Coyote Gulch, and then wading down a stream in a peaceful canyon is an unforgettable experience. Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument, Utah
So this picture is just funny: we’d pull the sand away from the side of the sand dune, and these wacky shapes would appear, almost like Bryce Canyon made of white sand! The problem was that people would see the picture and be sure we’d discovered the greatest new sight of the west…but really, this “canyon” is little more than six inches high. White Sand Dunes National Monument, New Mexico.
A loom at the Genesee Country Village, Mumford, New York
Buttermilk Falls in Mendham, New Jersey. This falls is quite close to the old Seeing Eye breeding facilities.
