Remember I am using a point and shoot and/or iPhone4 for my pics. I dream of taking pics with a real camera one day.

John,

Your photos initially were not showing up, but I checked 'em out through the links I could see, they look great. [ I've found that after making a post, I have to edit and update the topic, then the photos magically appear. Looks like Bob has fixed it for you, man that guy is fast! Maybe it is something buggy with photobucket, which I also use.] Did you hike all the way down the treacherous parts of Goat Canyon for your shot of the trestle? Jim

It is great to see such a variety of photos, it really shows the diversity of activities everyone enjoys out in the desert.

I like the photo of the trestle, makes it it look huge (well it is really..) and the photo of the tire with the inside of the Jeep window reflection...

Great photos TR! You don't see many BH photos from *above* the animal! What general area did you see the BH? Hope your health improves and you get back out there soon. - Jim

Daren, you got me. It is actually a moonrise! I mis-spoke.

Jim, can you believe it, it was on the Palm Canyon trail. I was looking for an easy "walk" to take my wife on.

Fixed
Think it is a bug with photobucket.
If I hit edit and save without making any changes the pictures show up.

Check now

No problem.
I am looking into some sort of solution.
For now after you post , click edit and then save.
That seems to fix it smile
