Ron is Famous

Or at least his cute little butt is.  Ron wrote up his RV emergency escape idea and submitted it for publication in the Escapees magazine.  Well, we received our copy today and there he is on page 55 in the Tips column.
The article is shorter than my post here and only has the one picture.  But what a picture!

Also in the same magazine, Diana and I each have a picture in the Viewfinder section.  Diana's is actually the featured picture and takes up about 2/3 of page 48.  It's her amazing picture of House on Fire, an ancient ruin that she posted last October here.  Here's her picture.

My picture was bumped to page 73 and is Ron standing under the 40-foot high pheasant along the Enchanted Highway in North Dakota.
The Enchanted Highway is a 32-mile stretch of otherwise ordinary road with these extraordinary giant sculptures that seem to spring up out of the surrounding fields.  I blogged about it way back in September of 2009 here.  I think it might be the best roadside attraction I've ever encountered.

This month's Viewfinder theme was oddities and I think both of these certainly qualify.


  1. Well, that's pretty special. I'll have to look that up. Those pictures are cool, especially the house on fire. Congratulations.

  2. How fun. I can hardly wait to get my copy. We loved the Enchanted Highway. And not very many people seem to know about it.

  3. Looks like Ron has put his best foot forward...

    And to think we knew you before you became a famous world class photographer! :c)

  4. WOW I know 3 Stars!! I love that shot of the House on Fire its amazing, but not as amazing as that HUGE pheasant!! What a fun shot.

  5. I'm really impressed--three photos in the magazine from 2 sisters. You are both amazing!

  6. Wow ... all three of you in print. Congrats due to each of you.

  7. Congratulations!!! My copy of the Escapees Magazine arrived today. The pictures are amazing. You all should be very proud!
