Do you try to capture your memories and adventures so that you can remember them from time to time, or do you just focus on the task at hand without stopping to record your travels?
I used to live moment to moment without thinking twice in my younger years. Now that I am getting older; however, my camera is never far from my side. Jenny and I often schedule an adventure just for the purpose of taking photographs these days. It has become a passion you might say.
As travelers, it is important to document our memories so that we can relive and share them later in life. You can start a journal or even fire up a free Blogger site. Save and photograph all your souvenirs. It is also recommended to keep a journal that you write short snippets about your adventures in.
With a free Blogger account you can virtually document and share your travels in real time. Then you can have the photos printed and make travel books that display your experiences and show off your souvenirs.
These are great to set out on your coffee table for guests flip through your pages when they visit. It is a guaranteed way to strike up a conversation and also make you appear more interesting.
I have taken to shooting photos of every little escape we can come across and would like to share one with you. These photos are from Vedauwoo Park in Wyoming. We only had a couple hours before Jenny had to report for her shift at the hospital, but I was still able to squeeze in a quick Jeep tour within the wilderness park.
Vedauwoo is taken from the Arapaho word meaning “earth born”. As you can see it gets it name from the odd rock formations that are popular with climbers in the area.
It was well below freezing with wind gusts over 50 mph, but I had to get her out for the shot. Sorry honey!
Like a trooper, I made the frigid climb up so that Jenny could get some shots of me as well. It is the memory that counts. Some day we will look back on these photos and remember the time we had.
