PhotoHunt - ROCKS


I actually had forgotten about Saturday PhotoHunt because I have not been receiving the emails about the Saturday themes. It was not until I checked out Jerry's and Palma's blogs that I found out what today's theme was. Thank You, Jerry and Palma!

Early this month, I went to Palm Desert for a week and saw many sights there that were rock-oriented. The Marriott Resort had rock themed landscaping all over... here is a sample of resort rocks. (I actually took this because I was curious about the plant).


From Palm Desert, I went to visit a friend in Alpine, California. Mapquest took me through deserted desert roads... where I was the only human (it seemed that way) for miles and miles... So I would stop in the middle of the highway and take pictures... Not recommended! Some examples of photos -


This must be why they put the sign up. :)



Arriving in Alpine, I stayed with a former colleague who relocated there. Here is part of her 3-acre backyard. There are some rocks there too.


She seems to live in a resort herself... all in all a nice visit to the desert!

Wow-what scenery!
When we went with our son to State College, PA to take him to school, we went through the Allegheny Mts.-rocks all around!

This is a great collection of photos. Looks like you went to some rocky but beautiful places on your trip!

TN Chick's husband has been in the hospital so maybe that's why the theme emails haven't been going out. There's a link to the future theme list on her blog.

Thanks for visiting mine and have a great weekend!

Your friends backyard is beautiful and looks so relaxing. Glad you discovered the theme so you could share your photos with us.

Pretty rocks shots,Eden. Looks like you enjoyed yourself.

Great shots - I'm like you, I'd be stopping and snapping all sorts of pics.

Have a good weekend.

Hi Eden, your photos are great! And I love your friend's back yard. It does look like some kind of resort. Beautiful.

Next week's theme is Utensils and I'm looking forward to everyone's pics then. Should be fun too.

Have a great day today!


Those signs always make me nervous... and what about that slide... a resort indeed! My hunt is up HERE.


Great photos for the rock theme!
