Eleven Mile Canyon, Sunday Selections

Photos from our camping trip - Eleven Mile Canyon, Colorado - Labor Day weekend:




My husband thought I was silly for taking a picture of thistle. But, I don't care that it was just a thistle. It's beautiful, right?







Taco Bell for lunch on the drive home!


Of course, here is a photo taken by Parker. I always love finding these masterpieces on my phone after he has been using it.

Menu, Taco Bell


I have linked up with Frogpondsrock for Sunday Selections!

Did you catch any fish? And what sort of fish would be in that creek? We are keen anglers though this year I have been too busy to wet a line. Living on an island we are never far from the water and the spouse has been doing a bit of saltwater fishing lately. Thanks for joining in this week. cheers Kim ps the thistle is a lovely purple. It is nice to admire them in a photo, rather than in my lawn :)

I'm with you on the thistle, I really like that picture! And I love Parker's picture too :) I'm all about kids taking control of the camera, it opens up a whole new world:)

The thistle is lovely! I have a folder on my computer entitled Flowers and Bugs. And it's got lots in there. Of course, the photos of your family are lovely, too. Especially love the photo of the Taco Bell menu. He's got his priorities!

OH these pictures are just beautiful! And the thistle is purplish pinkish so of course it deserved to be photographed.

Looks like you guys had a great time!

You take the best camping trips! How beautiful. Oh, and I love Parker's photos too. Do I see a possible photojournalism major in his future? If not, I can definitely seem him becomming a future blogger :)
