As I scrolled through the over 300 blog posts here the frequency at which yellow showed up in my photos amazed me.  I tried to pick a few where yellow was fundamental to the composition and in some cases clearly associated with the subject.  “Sulphur Vent and Zuti may be found by clicking on the “Croatia” menu button in the header above.  Union Pacific’s colors are a frequent sight in Houston.  The city was a rail center before oil wis discovered at nearby Spindletop.  Likewise, Marcia what photographed in Houston.  The pedicabs were just outside the Quarter, in New Orleans;  there is a menu button above for those popular photos.

South of Kona there are a series of nearby beaches.  Place of Refuge is a Pu’uhonua o National Historic Park and it is adjacent to Two Steps Beach, a popular snorkeling and scuba diving spot.  Further down the road is Hookena Beach Park where I photographed some locals and their boats.

Willow Waterhole is a flood control project on 290 acres.  There are two ponds with the larger one portrayed here.  Over 1 million yards of earth were removed during construction.  A side effect of this dig is a beautiful park and wildlife habitat.  Learn more here.

The weather was just right, so I went over to a nearby pond and took pictures of reflections on the water.

The view of Emerald Bay is visible from the road.  Van Sickle Park is right behind the Marriott.   The socks are manufactured by Sock it to Me, a company owned by a young woman I met on my last trip to Kauai, early in 2014.  Number 8 is typical of the older cabins around Tahoe.  If you visit Lake Tahoe when school is out, expect to see a lot of children.

Heavenly is the main ski area at Lake Tahoe.  In summer the trails are strewn with rocks and logs.  Tons of snow must fall before the slopes are open.  A gondola runs from right next to the Marriott to the 9,150 foot level and a chair lift adds about another 1,000 feet.  Further small elevation gains are possible with a short hike.

To reach lake Angora follow a complex set of directions from South Lake Tahoe.  The final turn is not marked and the first 100 yards of that road looks impassable.  Along the way signs warn the parking lot may be full.  You will need $7 in cash or a check to place in an envelope for parking.  Follow that with a short hike up the hill and you reach Lane Angora.
