This lookout is the starting point for Vulcan Trail. The walking trail follows the old route of the Mineral Branch of the L&N Railroad as it used run along Red Mountain.
The parking lot looks out over the south side of the city.
Can you see that pretty brown church in the middle of the photo? I work about 3 or 4 blocks south and 1 block west of that. (which would be right below the spot where I'm parked almost)
It is located directly below the new man in my week days.
This is what he looked like on Thursday. If you click and enlarge you might be able to see the mantle of snow he was wearing across his chest.
We had a nice dusting of fluffy white stuff over night Wednesday.
Lucky for me, the streets were clear. No ice, so I had an easy drive to work.
Twenty years ago, I made one just like this for myself and one for my sister. A few years ago I found out that my sister's kids loved it and fought over who would get to use it. I hadn't used mine in a long time, so I gave it to the oldest sibling.
Now I'm making one for my nephew and then I'll make one for my niece. Believe it or not, I never get rid of any crafty stuff and I was able to find the crochet pattern I'd used for the original ones.
Yesterday, I spent most of the day crafting to my little heart's content. I was inspired by an empty Bisquick box and this post to make Rachel a little Valentine's gifty.
And yes, these photos were taken in a parking lot. I forgot to snap a few shots before leaving home, so I took a few after I'd picked up a big bag of pink M&Ms for her.
Check out this link for a cute green-crafting idea using brown paper sacks as gift bags.
Happy Valentine's Day everyone!
