In honor of the Kentucky Derby this weekend, I’m posting a picture I took almost 10 years ago. This is Danzig; grandsire of multiple Kentucky Derby winners.

Today’s Photo Friday gives your two-for-the-price-of-one! A couple years ago, I got to visit the beautiful city of Sacramento.

This is a picture of barrels of bourbon aging at the Maker’s Mark distillery in Loretto, Kentucky. As beautiful as the building, timbers and oak barrels were, the smell was even more amazing. If you ever get a chance to visit a distillery like this, do it!

The original version of the photo was much flatter with the whites decidedly skewed toward blue … More Photo Friday February 8, 2013 “Seal and Glacier”
I was fortunate to visit these beautiful falls, located in the Columbia River Valley on the Oregon side. Several co-workers and I were in town for a national water quality meeting and this view was a great reminder as to why we all are so dedicated to clean water. I had to take three pictures … More Photo Friday December 7, 2012 “Multnomah Falls”
