  1. These are gorgeous pics. Wow! And to me, what they really show is your sense of adventure and free spirit! You are an amazing woman Suanne! Thanks for sharing!

    1. Thanks Debra! I sure do miss you. And looking forward to hearing more of *your* adventures. Hugs, Suanne

  2. Awesome captures of the gorgeous skyscapes, Suanne. Can't wait to be out there, with you, again!

    1. Thanks Cyndi. Scratches for Stumpy ... and I'll be seeing you on the road!

  3. Wow. I enjoyed all your photos, but, I have just got to see more sunrises. They are a rare site for the late riser, like me. But every time I've made the effort it felt like such a beautiful adventure into an new world.

    1. Thanks! I love sunrises. It's typically my quite time to start my day; so, taking photos is not usually on my agenda. But, I sure like remembering them when I do get to taking a picture. I'll have to do better in the future.

  4. Your video of living out of your Prius totally inspires me. Love and huggs. Sandy Saint John
