My Week of Randoms ~ Sticks and Stones and a Partial Eclipse


Tree branches run amuck 


Interesting driftwood


Steel Creek Park
We camped here back in 1979 & it sure has changed
Couldn't see the creek for all the trees
But I still love the rock formations- beautiful


Strange rock building that we saw a photo of at a local Western Sizzler & just had to go find the original buildings.  There are two, side by side.  Some say this was a hotel cabin...I don't know- just thought they were neat buildings.


This is my sad attempt to capture the total eclipse.  We just don't live in the right spot for it, but I did get a partial view.  I was here for the one in the 70's and it was much better- at least it was a full one and I guess I will probably never see that again.

  1. Lovely pictures! I hear that if you traveled quite a way, you could see a total eclipse somewhere in the world every year or two. :-)

  2. I did not even go outside so yours is better than mine. I was glued to the TV watching the eclipse. I love those rock cliffs and I have been amazed when I visit somewhere that it has been 30 or 40 years since I was last there and it is almost unrecognizable because of tree growth

  3. Those rock formations at Steele Creek Park are gorgeous. Doug and I might have to check that place out. Was the small stone building there or closer to your home? That would be neat to see, too. The twisty branches and driftwood also made good photos.

  9. That's a pretty picture of the partial eclipse. I didn't dare look up for fear of damaging my eyes, but I did go outside and notice it getting darker during the morning hours, very strange.....and part of our history. Wonderful random pics. Pictures of this and that are my favorite posts.

  10. I love your eclipse picture. I stayed in a building like that once when I was a kid. In Oklahoma. It was a motel. I have never slept so good in my life. I still remember it. The rock kept it cool and so quiet.
    I love that place you camped. That is very interesting formations. The next eclipse is in 2024. I bet you see the next one too. :) Have a lovely day.

  11. I have never been to that park - but the rock formations are awesome.
    We had a 97% eclipse here and a lot and I mean quite a few people drove 90 minutes to see the full eclipse. sandie

  13. Such fun and interesting photos! I adore the stone building! My imagination runs wild about what it might have been used for!

  14. I love those rock formations, too...and of course I love that building out of stone. I love anything made with rocks.

    You did better than me on the eclipse...a big old cloud covered it up at my house!

  16. You will get another shot at a full eclipse in April 2024! And again in 2045, if you're feeling optimistic. :)

    I like all your photos, but especially that first one.

  17. Loved all of your randoms - and am blown away by the cliffs and the wood.

  18. No need to apologize about my selfie remark.I just do not have a camera that would make one.

  19. It got dim here in Portland, but not dark.

  20. We have to get out and see different things.

  23. Neat pictures! I like the rock cliff and the stone building. I watched the eclipse on TV because we had only a partial eclipse here too.

  24. Love that rock house. Hang in there. In just 7 years a total eclipse will go right over Arkansas.

  25. Any eclipse photo attempt is better than none, Teri, which is what I got. Thatsaid, we did see a bit of it in MA where we were visiting and someone lent us glasses.It was pretty amazing, the little we did see. Rock formations are always interesting expecially over time.

  26. These are all amazing photos and that last one, are you kidding...it is wonderful!
    Thanks so much for commenting on my post and you becoming a new follower. You have made my day!

  27. Your pictures are always beautiful. I love a home built of rock. We used to drive past one going to my grandma's house when I was small and I will never forget how it looked.

  28. Nice shots!
    Thanks for visiting!

  29. It looks like a good place, and your eclipse pic was fine.

  30. A joy to visit. I loved the old stone building, it would be lovely to find out more about it. Thank you so much for your visit, hope you visit again soon.

  31. Beautiful shots! I love your eclipse picture. We had a lot of clouds the day of the eclipse, and I didn't get anything good. We were at 91% though.

  32. Terrifically interesting photos - such composition. I love the stone house - things like that really fascinate me, I always make up stories about what went on in the little houses.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I think your eclipse shot is really neat! I also liked your branches shot and the cool old stone house and those rock formations are awesome! Good job! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  34. You took a really good photo of the eclipse...that's about the coverage we saw here. I love seeing that twisted piece of driftwood and the old rock building! Wonderful photos my friend!

  35. You have some beautiful pictures. It was too cloudy here to see the eclipse, but that's okay. With my poor eyesight, I wasn't about to look up anyway. Steel Creek looks like an amazing park.

  36. prachtige foto,s en ach de zonsverduistering is schijnbaar niet voor iedereen weggelegd.

  38. Well if it's any consolation we saw none the eclipse here in the UK. We weren't due to get much but it was too cloudy anyway.

  39. interesting stuff today...i have always wanted a fun piece of driftwood for my gardens. i think your image of the eclipse is great, it was a no show in my part of new jersey!!!

  40. Wonderful and interesting photos. I didn't dare look at the eclipse....but the shadows were cool! I like the rock building. Hope your weekend is nice. xo Karen

  41. Beautiful photos. I love old buildings like the ones you found (how on earth did you find them from a picture?). We saw 80% of the eclipse here -- your picture is great! I took some and they are 'ok' but at least I captured it!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Your eclipse picture is better than mine ... no apology needed. You'll probably see another one Terri. I'm the same age as your mother would be -- OK a whole year younger -- so when I say 'once in a lifetime' (for anything, not just the eclipse ....) it is quite probably true!

    The stone buildings are wonderful. Someone worked hard to create those.

  43. Nice shots - I have never seen much of an eclipse at all. I think there is a visible one in Australia in about 12 years!
