Atlantic City, NJ

 I am linking up with  Oh, the places I've been @ Tablescaper   and check out  Gemma's  Scenic Weekend   And Friday Postcards

These are some scenic shots from our trip to the New Jersey shore and Atlantic City. Atlantic City's boardwalk is famous from back to the days of the popular Steel Pier, a diving horse and concerts. When I was young traveling with my family we saw concerts featuring the Supremes, BJ Thomas  and do you remember the group called 5th Dimension. Atlantic City now is mostly high rise casinos and hotels. There is a pier with a large mall.


The view of Atlantic City  and a gorgeous sky from our hotel room.  The next larger building is the Resorts Hotel and Casino.


The Trump Taj Mahal Casino and hotel on the Atlantic City boardwalk. We were out on the boardwalk hoping to see the full moon.


Next door to the Trump is the Showboat hotel and Casino..



A shot of the full moon from our hotel room at Trump's Taj Mahal .



 A sunrise over the Atlantic ocean.


Since I live in Maryland I could not help but to take a shot of the sign showing Maryland Avenue and the sun rising. We use Atlantic City as a base to stay when we visit the Barnegat Wildlife Refuge and some times Cape May. 


I hope you enjoyed my travel and scenic post.  I wish everyone a safe and happy weekend.

Guadalupe Mountains

 I am linking up with  Oh, the places I've been @ Tablescaper   and check out  Gemma's  Scenic Weekend   And Friday Postcards

 It has been awhile since I have done a travel post, I never really shared all of the sights we saw while visiting New Mexico and Texas.. These photos are from that trip and a stop at the Guadalupe Mountains National Park.





The Pinery trail is located behind the Pine Springs Visitor Center.


The Pinery trail has exhibits describing the vegetation of the Chihuahuan Desert.






The views of Guadalupe Mountains from the visitor center.



Driving along the National Park Highway we stopped and took a look at El Capitan from the opposite side.


The view of Guadalupe Peak and El Capitan. It is the 8th highest peak in Texas.


 Linda Lake is a large salt basin located on the west side of the Guadalupe Mountains National Park.




Not far from the pull out for El Capitan we stopped at this Lake Linda..The layers of blue were very pretty.

I hope you enjoyed my travel post.  I wish everyone a safe and happy weekend.
