Spending a week with my family in McCall, Idaho.

Both my son and my daughter and their families are here and I am getting some fun pictures. Here are a few from a tubing adventure with my grandson and two of his friends.

My son was driving and has gotten very good at "encouraging" flight.

In the next three pictures you will see what happens when the "encouragement" goes a little too far. My camera takes ten frames per second, this whole scene from start to finish was 8 frames, or eight tenths of a second...

My grandson Callan is the one on the left and the last one out in this sequence.

I absolutely LOVE the expressions on the boys faces, which I can not see well from the boat.

I have an incredible moonrise which I am not sure I captured well and some fun pictures of my daughter's two precious daughters, but she has asked me not to post those, so just imagine the cutest girls ever, at least in this grandfather's heart...

I will try to process those photos tonight or tomorrow and post those that I can. As you might imagine, my computer time is VERY limited while traveling.

Love the expressions! Wonderful photography Wink. Don't think I'd trust your son to tow me however :twisted: The background landscape is breathtaking!

He drives much more carefully with the younger ones and the young ladies who ask him to. For me it is too much fun to fly, but I once broke an eardrum doing so, so we always respect the requests of the riders.

The background is the peninsula at Payette Lake in McCall, Idaho. In the flying picture, you see first the peninsula, then behind them the mountains on the lake on the other side of the peninsula, and then the mountain range behind. Idaho has a LOT of mountains, wonderful for hiking, hunting biking and scenery. If Idaho was as flat as Kansas, it would be a HUGE state.

Yesterday I got some pictures of cliff jumping. By the time the kids are in bed and I have time to process them, I am too tired to keep my eyes open.

Thank you.

Here is a picture of an incredible sunrise about to happen. My sister and I were unloading the dishwasher prior to leaving for Boise and as I came out with an armload of dishes I saw the incredible colors coming through the kitchen windows.

I ran to my truck and grabbed my camera. By the time I could get to the front of the cabin the colors were already starting to fade and within a minute of taking this pictures were already gone.
