A Fair to Remember
Last Friday, I entered this picture of Mt. McKinley in the Amarillo Tri-State Fair. I still get goosebumps thinking about our flight in a small plane and the miracle of seeing the mountain at all, much less capturing this image. Mt. McKinley in Alaska is the tallest peak in North America.
The judge awarded a 2nd place ribbon; prize money gets divided among all entrants. Yippee.
But I also entered in the Portrait category. When my daughter told her husband that the picture of them did not win, he said, "This was not a Fair to remember."
