Scenics by Jake

These photos go back to about 1976 or so.That is my little boy who is now all grown up with a daughter who is older than he is in this shot.
I can not be totally sure where this is,but it would have been in the USA as we were coming back from a trip to the Denver,Colorado area.


The Grand Tetons are truly grand in every way.This photo was taken back around 1969 or 70.


Again I am not sure of the location,but I love the shot.


Since Jake did some travelling before I came into his life I really have no idea where this is,but I liked how he framed the scene with the out of focus leaves.


This is Lake Louise in the Canadian Rockies.From the smoky look,I'm guessing that it was when he travelled through there in 1971 with a friend.

Memories are good,but each day is a gift from God.

Thank You God for blessing me much more than I deserve.

  5. I love your pretty new February header! The first picture is beautiful with the shadows on the mountains. The tall trees and their reflection are my next favorite, just gorgeous. And those flowers with the mountains behind them. The mountain on the left looks like it goes straight UP!

  19. How wonderful that you have all these great photos from your husband. He certainly was quite the photographer and it seems to have rubbed off on you and your son. Keep snapping and enjoying life.
