rim ride photo mania

ok. so. i have about four billion pictures from the rim ride gathering this weekend. i figured someone (at least one of you) would like to see them.

the thing is, there are the rim ride participants, each with their rich experiences, and their amazing stories.... all i have of those brave individuals are pictures (posted here) and my personal experiences of our lucky encounters. click the links below the pix to get their most incredible stories and experiences.

i do also have my own veryspecial rim-ride to 313 story + pictures, which deserves it's own story... i guess ;-) but i'll save that for tomorrow night when i'm wasting evening time in texas. i will post my story and my own days worth of pix tomorrow....

how about i just post pix of the non-event-event, and call it good? all you participants, feel free to take any pix you want!

Thanks! Without my camera on the ride I don't have very many photos. Although Kerkove did take a big one of my butt :)

Ed said...

Darling, you were my inspiration and I thought of you often while I was out there.

Your pix are the best I've seen of the event, including the people and not just scenery. I can't wait to see the rest. Puppy dog overflowing the chair and DH's hair-do crack me up.

NICE! It's all about the little things.

I have no idea what the hell I mean sometimes.

It was great to see you. Thanks for posting all the photos. I didn't receive any via e mail if you sent some my way. I think I was actually as giddy as I look in those pictures!

Grizzly Adam said...

I don't know if I was getting into the zone, or falling asleep. :) I like it though, nice picture!

Lynda Wallenfels said...

Adam - it looks to me like you were saying a prayer.

Special sure is one way to describe it... Jj - if I knew Half of what D was thinking, half the time he actually Was thinking - I'd probably have opened the car door and kicked him out, sometime when we were going 60 down a desert road in the middle of nowhere, by now...

ignorance is bliss.
