Mt. Nebo Drive 8-16-2017

Posted by Paul On August - 16 - 2017

Today a friend and I drove up to Mt. Nemo and back.  It was spectacular!!!  We left at 8:30 in the morning and got back at 11:30, and that included time to get gas and ask for directions (a road was closed).  It was a pretty winding road so I took the NSX; the road was very nice all the way – parts of it were recently repaved (about 48 hours ago so it was nice and dry).  All pictures were taken with my Nikon D750 and 28-300mm lens; the ISO was set at 800.  Here are the pics…

Winter Quarters

Posted by Paul On July - 31 - 2017

While attending the July 2017 IPMS Nationals in Omaha Nebraska, my son Jared and I took one morning to visit the Winter Quarters Museum across town.  It was here that thousands of LDS saints camped before begining their treck across the country to what is now Salt Lake City Utah.  It is the largest migration in our countries history.  My great great grandmother, Maria Normington was among those who made the treck.  She lost her husband and a baby boy on the journey.  Her story is related in this section, and is well worth reading.
