Evie Mohrfeld: A question of our journeys
As I trip through my photo albums, I am finding some photos where I have failed to record information on the back. Some have taken me a while to recognize, but it has been fun reliving our experiences.
I thought it might be a challenge and fun to guess what state, country, special site or day trip and event the pictures might be capturing. No prize, just a challenge to test your memory.
