Ranunculus Flower Fields - Carlsbad, California USA

 The Carlsbad Flower Fields are ablaze in color.
Ranunculus flowers are candy to the eyes!

 The multi-color section!

 Delightful pinks!

 The red section has been invaded!

 There is a very nice view of the ocean, too.

 This is supposed to be the yellow section...oops!

 These young girls were having such a good time!

 There are so many photographic opportunities here.
Unfortunately the season will be over soon...May 1st.

A tractor carries people through the fields as an option to walking.
Children really like the wagon ride!
I am all ready looking forward to returning next year!

Almost to Te Anau - South Island, New Zealand

 The day was dark and cloudy with a few showers along the way.
It's been a full day of driving with incredible scenery every inch of the way.
These photos were taken from a moving coach with tinted windows...ugh!

 We started in Dunedin and are now very close to Te Anau where we will spend the night.
There are many river beds to cross, some with lots of water and others with very little.

 The scene changes around every bend in the road.

 I wonder where that road goes...

 more sheep!
 and, wide open spaces.

 The mountains are getting more and more bold and beautiful!

 The colors change once again.

 LOVE these trees!

 and, these trees too.

We have arrived with plenty of daylight left.
Our hotel is across from the lake and we are ready to get into our room and get out and walk!

Watching Nighttime Choo Choos - Cajon Pass, California USA

My little grandsons, Chase 5 years and Noah 2 years old.
We are on a bluff overlooking the railroad tracks that carry freight trains over the Cajon Pass in Southern California, USA.
We like seeing the train lights glow on the sides of the hills as they round the corners at this location.
