Skiers & Snowboarders on Westridge at Snow Summit, this past Sunday, over 4 miles from my front yard in Fawnskin:





I don't care what you say, Mtngoat John, this is fun!


4 miles Our houses in Idaho are only 2.09 miles apart. Rut Roh

Nice shots Roger!!

Thanks!
Good thing there are like 1,000,000 (maybe more) trees between us!
And I also don't have a drone that can lift this camera.

Those long distance shots are impressive, Roger! What make and model if I may be so bold?

Thank you! They don't always come out that great. Sometimes it's too hazy or there's too much heat/atmosphere shimmering to get pictures that clear that far away. But I can't wait to see more bald eagles!
For the first time in about 15 years, I went with a non-Sony camera. This is the Nikon P1000. I just couldn't resist the 125x optical zoom after R pointed it out to me.

Excellent choice. Did you use a tripod with the shots?

Thanks y'all!

Cap'n Crunch - yes on the tripod for the night shots, no for the ski resort daytime shots, and I don't specifically remember on the ones down by the lake, I think so on the first 2, but maybe not on the duck.

Don't blame me! I was left unsupervised!

I am not a flatlander but I do have a flat head.... forgot where I was going with this. Anyway, have a great Sunday everyone. Oh, I know, visit the Museum, sit in the shade with a cool sarsaparilla, and have a nice time. Yea, that was it.

From the other side of the coin: I was driving DTH, going the speed limit and had a line of cars in front of me. A old jeep came up on me very fast so I planned to use the next turnout. He didn't give me time to get there and he passed (illegally) on a curve only to nearly rear end the next car in line. He screamed at me as he went by. Did he have a woman in labor in the car? What on earth could be important enough to risk a head on collision? This isn't the only time I've had this happen over the years but it's usually a sports car. For those of you that flash you lights at me when I use the turnout for you...thanks! I always say" ahhh...you're welcome!" out loud. My dog probably thinks I'm insane. She could be right.

I drive the Idyllwild road from Palm Desert, faster than most. I am more comfortable on mountain roads than freeways, but if someone is behind me, ill gladly let them pass, or ill pull over.

Tlingit! I just think we all need to obey the law! If you want to drive slow, then pull over! That’s all

wolfman If you go to the CA DMV webpage you can obtain the information for Driving laws in 103 languages!! When you go into a DMV office to pick up a Driver's Lic handbook, you can barely find an English one but they have one for every language listed. In each of those books there is clearly stated about the turnouts. Just like you and I if we have California Driver's License we are signing off to knowing all these laws and nowadays anyone can get a license. SO maybe during busy season some more CHP monitoring is needed which also generates income for the State so people get the message. To put a sign up with all the languages would obstruct the beautiful views of the mountains. If a poll be taken I would bet that 99% of the people who speed up etc speck only English! Can I mention!fanit dumb drivers again?
