Re: Just a

Hi Ejnar,

Yes, it's just a contrail. It looked like it was going straight up, and I was close to this mountain. So, I thought if I walked just far enough to line them up I would get this shot. It worked.
Thank you for the visit to this shot and all the other times you have visited my pages. I appreciate it, Ejnar.
Happy hiking,

Dow Williams

Re: that is a great...

Thanks Dow, What I found out going around in Arches and Zion was that you can hardly ever get a sky clear of contrails. So, why not use them to my advantage. I took this shot from HWY 9, but I had to find a place on the frozen road, with snow covered shoulders, to park and walk a certain distance to line up the contrail and the mountain. I think walking on that road, in those conditions, was more dangerous than leading any of the runout climbs in Tuolumne Meadows.
Many thanks Dow,

Now I don't know where

I'm gonna go, when the VOLCANO blow !!

My girl quickly say to me,
"Mon you better watch your feet."
Lava come down soft and hot.
"You better 'lava' me or 'lava' me not!"

No time to count what I'm worth,
'Cause I just left the planet Earth.
Where I go I hope there's RUM -
Not to worry mon soon come.

(Jimmy Buffett - 1979)

Re: Now I don't know where

Pretty amazing, Larry. I get confused remembering my phone numbers, and you remember a song from 1979!

I cannot remember a single poem.
Isn't Jimmy Buffett the guy who did that song, going like "Living on sponge cake, watching the Sunday....?I have no doubt you remember the rest.

Re: Now I don't know where

"Niblin' on sponge cake,
Watchin' the sun bake;
All of those tourists covered with oil.
Strummin' my six string -
On my front porch swing.
Smell those shrimp,
They're beginnin' to boil!"

(Jimmy Buffett - 1977)

Re: Now I don't know where

Ha, you see what I mean. I can't even remember one line from such a famous song.

Marc some people don't have room for memory since this space is filled with inventions, innovation..

Re: Now I don't know where

Talking about memory, I think my memory back is all filled up since I don't remember a thing any more.

Re: very cool

Thank you Katie. I had to do a bit of walking to get the contrail and the mountain lined up. But, I think it was worth it.

Would you mind if I added this one to my "unusual images" album? It is not every day when you see something like this in Zion. Thanks for posting this one Marc.
