11 Jun 18 Made some progress with the mailing issue over the weekend. Looks like I'll be moving the service over to MailChimp. Likely will take the rest of the week to work out all the kinks, but then I'll have official mailing of up to 2,000 recipients with up to 12,000 emails per month free of charge and no span crap! Hopefully the mailing one week from today will go out to all at once and in your in-box.
Today's submission is of the Lower Falls in of the Grand Canyon in Yellowstone. There are three locations from which you can photograph these falls with two offering an opportunity to get right down level with the water. Both of these locations were closed while we were visiting so this shot is from the most distant observation point, Artist's Point. I'll share several other views of the falls but I thought I'd start with this one as it provides for a nice overview. As you will note there was still a significant amount of snow and ice remaining in the area of the falls which accounted for much of the closures although, as usual, there was far more closed than need be which I'll illustrate with a humorous shot later. There was plenty of water flowing in the river and over the falls and it was creating its own weather providing an illustration of water in all its three forms, solid, liquid, and vapor. Not a shot you get every day but not all the unusual during the winter months. If you zoom into 100% you can see the viewing platform at river level at the upper right of the image adjacent to the right hand side of the river. If you take the hike down to that platform, I've done it several times, you get a great view of the water boiling over the edge and spilling down to the base of the canyon. Not a difficult walk down but you may want to take it slowly on the return leg. May just have to do that on the next visit this October. We'll see how things go.
