Not knowing exactly where or when we will be this holiday season— it’s the Age of Covid— I decided to simplify my blogging life over the next two weeks by posting National Park and Monument photos Peggy and I used in two family calendars we designed for this year. (And likely used in blogs. Grin.) The pictures come from trips we took in 2019-20. Plus, I’ll slip in the slightly PG rated Christmas Card we sent out this week featuring the Corral, Chorale, Choir. I designed and drew the card several years ago but decided we needed a sense of humor more than anything else at this point in time, so I reproduced it. I will continue with my Blog-a-Book Tuesdays with stories I’m putting together for It’s 4 AM and a Bear Is Standing on Top of Me.
With out further ado: Calendar photos, starting with Crater Lake featured above. I’ll be posting six or seven photos with each blog.
That’s it for today. Next Tuesday it’s back to blogging my book. On Wednesday, it’s time for the Christmas Card featuring Cow Girls. Christmas Eve, I’ll be posting more National Park calendar photos.

See you next Tuesday — I’m off to reclaim Princess. With luck, I’ll be home by then! I’m not even taking my camera: this is a delivery, not a cruise.
Good luck, Linda. May Princess run like a charm. For many years to come! –Curt
She’s got a 2015 engine now that seems fairly perky. So far so good — tomorrow’s the run for Houston.
By now, you should be home safe, assuming Princess behaved. 🙂
She didn’t. She’s in the Toyota ICU. I am home, however. I have learned that Elijah is the patron saint of auto mechanics, because he took a flaming chariot to heaven. I’m hoping to avoid the flames, although it will be heaven to have Princess back.
Oh no. Not the Toyota ICU! Our only problem was a miscreant rat that insisted on gumming up the works of our heater. $200 to Toyota fixed the problem. We have heat again without the flaming chariot.
I’m home. Princess is home. All is well, and a hundred dollars and changed covered it. I think I finally can relax — a bad battery cell was causing some blinking and flashing and weird behavior. Santa came early!
It is amazing how iconic those parks are. Simply viewing the partial shot of Crater Lake, I thought to myself, “Hey, that is Crater Lake.”
Millions of photos floating around out there. That’s for sure. There are reasons! 🙂 Crater Lake has the advantage of being a little over two hours away from where we live. As are the Redwoods. –Curt
That will be one calendar with a difference. So many wonders and the photos are so beautiful we can all feel as we been there.
Lucky recipients and may Peggy and you be able to continue enjoying nature wherever you go.
Thanks, Miriam! The calendars are always appreciated. They make great gifts. Hard to go wrong with the beautiful national parks for inspiration. 🙂
We certainly plan on continuing to enjoy what Mother Nature has to offer as long as we can! We are still going strong. –Curt
Beautiful shots, Curt. I think by using your RV, you and Peggy got out more than most people in 2020. But I hope you are really set free in 2021.
I hope all of us are set free, Ray. 🙂 Thanks. –Curt
Can see why you included them in your calendar.
Thanks! Appreciated. –Curt
Wow, what great photos. Love the idea of making a calendar.
It’s fun, Peggy. We used to make one every year using the Apple ap. But then Apple did away with it. I discovered there are a number of other companies that provide the same option. And I’ve found one that provides similar quality. –Curt
Gorgeous photos, Curt!
Great calendar shots. Great shots without it too.
Some of these I’ve seen, some I wish I could see. All lovely. Thanks for sharing.
And best holiday wishes to you and Peggy!
We had fun creating the calendar, Rusha. The very best to you and Bert as well!
A lovely calendar they will make. Best wishes of the season to you and Peggy and your whole family.
And the very best to you and your family as well, Sue. –Curt
That is one beautiful calendar..be well Friend. Merry Christmas and here’s to 2021
Amazing photos Curt, as always! I have nominated you to a Travel Challenge, not sure if you are interested, or having time, but I thought maybe Peggy can give you a hand🙂 If not, that’s all ok!
Merry Christmas, and to many more wonderful posts in 2021!
Hi, Christie. Haven’t been on the Internet the past few days but I check it out. Thanks! Not a lot of time now so I will have to see what is involved. A very Merry Christmas to you and your family! –Curt
Indeed, this is the busiest time of the year😊
Take care, Christie
These photos are exceptional.
