Low Down On Kaw Point

 Went on a photog-safari today with some new friends.  Took them to Kaw Point.  Water is very low  
                                                 there too due to the on-going draught.
 All the bank showing in these pictures was under water last spring. Above, Kaw on the right, Missouri River on the left.

DUMB + Vehicle + DUMB + Speed = DUMB

 Some genius managed to drive clear through the Thomas Hart Benton Memorial last night.  These are iron fences folks... he/she/it had to be going 80 or more to get through both..  Tore up everything.

 Truck (I'm assuming here) parts are all over the place as well as a lot of tools.

 The Parks Department had just finished repairing the fence from another driver's fence encounter.

Two Mansions On Norledge

Martha Matilda Scarritt Jones Home.  1890s  Designed by Root and Siemans. 

William Chick Scarritt Home 1888.  Under renovation. A rare brownstone home in Kansas City.  Stones came from a quarry in the northeastern United States.  This is how the home looked right after construction with brand new copper and a slate roof.

Sledding By The Museum

 Sledding the bluff on the west side of the Kansas City Museum has always been popular.  Today lots of folks were there.  
 Above, a casualty of fatigue... part of sledding a hill is you have to climb back up.  Julian Peterson rested/passed out after reaching the top.   Below, my friends the Petersons... long-time Scarritt Renaissance residents.... Joey in  back and, left to right, Julian, Aleena, and Cheryle.   All survived.
                                         Below, Aleena... relaxing/resting/pre-coma.

                         Above, the tree figured prominently in many runs.... closer shots later.

 Above, goggles help,   below... so does maintaining control..  By the way, no one was injured while I
                                 was there... despite what some of the pictures look like 

 Series of three.... good form all the way to the ground.

 This bunch was out of control prior to starting.   Also, when videoing a group sled... there are good places to stand and not so good places to stand.

 Here is one of many near-misses with the afore-mentioned tree.

 Above, the point at which one sees the tree.  Below, the point at which all hope is lost.

 Sideways seldom works well with thin snow.  

 Above, the skyline from the hill-top.  Below, during the best wipeouts.. all you should see are feet.
          All shots, Nikon D800, 24-70mm lens, or, 70-300mm lens.  ASA 400, F11, focus continuous.
