I’ve recently come across a great blog called Where’s My Backpack?, which includes a Travel Theme challenge as a weekly feature. Ailsa, the blog’s owner, will post a collection of photos on a particular theme, then invite her readers to follow suit. Ailsa’s challenge this week is… Travel Theme: Brown. So, I thought I’d give it a go!
Aside from the fact that my own coat includes brown, I immediately thought of our Journey through the red-brown desert landscapes of southern Utah this time last year. Then I remembered the amazing slot canyons we climbed through in Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument, and knew they would be perfect!
Here are a couple of photos I didn’t have space for in the post I wrote at the time, Scenic Byways & Slot Canyons. I hope you like them.
Ailsa’s own brown-themed photos included a couple of things that struck a personal chord. The first was a photo of her dog, Sprocket… so here’s a return photo of Rich and Sue’s dog, Marty.
The second of Ailsa’s photos that grabbed my attention was of the original Winnie-the-Pooh, who she met in New York ‘not long ago’. Which just goes to prove what a small world it is, because I also met Winnie in NYC this summer. He’s currently taking part in the New York Public Library’s exhibition, The ABC of It: Why Children’s Books Matter, which is obviously a theme close to my own heart. My blog A Taste of the Big Apple, includes a bit about my visit to the NYPL.
