Here are some pics I've taken while I'm out and about

Here is Zumwalt Park. It was a rainy day. In the evenings, sometimes there are bands that play there, in the spring the symphony plays there as well... people bring lounge chairs, picnics... good times :)

As you know by the pics I've posted of the snow capped mountains... in downtown, there is a mural of the mountains.


After it had rained the other day, the sun came out... I was driving home and saw this cloud and it had such a glow, I took the pic just before the sun came out. I did use photo-shop in this pic to add the sun rays.

This is The Fox Theater. Opened in 1930 in the early days of "talking pictures," the theater was the grand showplace in town for over 40 years. Going to the Fox was an unforgettable experience. It let you leave the streets of Visalia behind to enter the garden court of an East Indian temple resplendent with wall murals, green trees, and of course, the unforgettable twinkling stars above.



Here is a very old pic of it:


On Feb. 12 they are having an event called "In The Mood" to take you back in time...
