The last quarter of 2014 was a challenge. Along with health issues for both my husband and myself, I also had my computer crash. I lost all my pictures. Almost twenty years worth. I watched them disappear before my eyes Needles to say this was very painful. I'm not quite sure exactly what happened, but I had them all backed up on a second drive. They all moved over into a trash bin and I deleted them by accident. I could not find them or see them. My Picassa program on my computer went blank and Adobe Elements was deleted in error by someone who had been working on my computer. I had a computer bug and we were trying to get rid of it. Eventually the computer needed CPR. The beginning of December was a sad time.
I looked for old CD's, DVD's and thumb drives. Anything I had backed up old pictures on. I found some of the pictures I had lost. I have always been religious at backing up everything. That is until we had a third party start to work on our computers. I had about 4,000 pictures so there are a lot to back up.
I decided to take the computer to the Geek Squad at Best Buy. They backed up what was on my computer and my backup drive. Then wiped my computer clean and we started all over again. I added all new program updates and the Geeks added everything that was on my computer prior to the crash back on. Guess what?? All my pictures were still there!! Ho-ray!!! That was one of the best Christmas presents this season.
Tonight I took a look at some of the old pictures from trips taken in the past. Nothing like living old adventures over again. I'm so glad I didn't loose these. I thought I'd share a few with you!
These are both from Canyon Lands National Park in Utah taken during a trip in 2004. If you have not been there I would highly recommend you make time to see one of the wonders of the world.
I'm so glad I have these pictures to remember the art and beauty of Mother Nature. She is the ultimate artist!
Good night, it is time for bed.
More adventures will follow....I love adventures, don't you?
