I landed in Salt Lake City and headed over to the lake to camp and enjoy the sunset before I started my long vacation. The sunset was nice and there was maybe 2 others out there to watch it go down. Interesting lake, nothing like it back east and talk about salty water.

Over on the Eastern Shore there is a lot of wildlife to see including waterfowl. Ducks are out and I saw this one swimming in the reeds of a wildlife refuge that I wanted to capture and with the reflection, I thought it better be in black and white.

Last month I had the opportunity to go take a tour of Swannanoa which is located up on Afton Mountain in Virginia right of the Blue Ridge Parkway. It is a wonderful looking marble mansion/palace in an Italian Renaissance Revival style built in 1912. It was built by James Dooley the same family of the Maymont house and park in Richmond Virginia. It eventually was left abandoned and empty for a long time till it was bought by a private party that has done what they can to keep it from falling apart. They hold tours there now on some weekends and anyone can check it out if you are in the area. It is a fabulous property including outside. This is one of the many light fixtures that are inside the mansion with the falling-apart paint and wall paper and the bottom is from the ceiling.

Great Falls Park is located in Fairfax County in Virginia. It is the great falls of the Potomac River and a sight to see.

This plant looked interesting to me so I captured it on my trip to Washington and Oregon. I am not sure what it is but if you know please let me know!
