“Waves of Sand” by Scott C.
The picture is of the afternoon light on the Great Sand Dunes in Southern Colorado. The great sand dunes are the tallest dunes on the North American Continent, rising to 750 feet. The wind drops grains of sand at the base of the Sangre De Cristo Mountain range, which contains six 13,000 ft. peaks in the area. A creek runs at the base of the sand dunes during wet weather and kids have fund building sand castles or sliding down the dunes. The camp grounds contain showers to get the sand off. Bring boots for your dog or plan to carry it, because dogs do not do well on the hot sand.
“Like Sunrise on Mars” by Alison C.
The picture is sunrise over Goblin Valley, Utah. The dusty landscape is filled with hoodoos large and small. Since it is a state park, visitors can actually climb around the rocks and hoodoos, and children enjoy games of hide seek. It is off the beaten path, and a real jewel in the natural resources of Utah. A project called the “Mission to Mars” project is kept near the state park. Educators, scientists, students, can go there to experience what life on Mars might feel and look like. The Mission to Mars was created by educator and long time Civil Air Patrol volunteer Col. Barrainca. It can be very hot in the summer at Goblin Valley, with little to no shade, but the star gazing is beyond compare. Spring and Fall visits to Goblin Valley are very pleasant.
“The Bluebell Woods” by Kerry M.
Trying to think of my favorite photo from any traveling I have done proved to tough, so, I tried to think of my favorite place. I love England. I love trees. The woodlands in the South of England are so beautiful, so comforting in a Winnie the Pooh sort of way (quite literally) I ended up with this shot. Near where my family are from in Hampshire, the bluebells explode over the forest floor each Spring. It’s like a Fairyland. It really is this pretty! Amazing on a small island that has been populated for so many hundreds of years, that so much Nature manages to not only survive, but thrive. So, my favorite travel photo is of my Spiritual Home.
Entry # 4
“Phewa Lake” by Becky K.
This photo was taken last year at a lake outside of Pokhara, Nepal.
“Surfer’s Paradise” by Tonya Z.
This is a photo of myself at Surfer’s Paradise. That day was awesome!
“Dutch Windmill, Alphen aan den Rijn, Netherlands” by Veronica
This photo was taken in Alphen aan den Rijn in The Netherlands in December 2012. We were living there at the time and I was riding around on my bike with my new camera trying to catch pictures of pure Dutch-ness. I think this picture qualifies. I hope you like it too.
“Sand and Salt” by Cassie C.
“La Laguna De San Carolos, Panama” by Erin C.
This is a picture of La Laguna De San Carolos, Panama in 2013.
“Parents in Redwoods” by Kerri C.
Picture of my parents walking hand and hand in the Redwoods at Lady Bird Johnson State Park in CA.
“Near Ghost Ranch, Abiquiu, New Mexico” by Wendy M.
I had never been to New Mexico before. My friend that I was visiting graciously drove me around half the state, so I could take it all in. She stopped at my every whim, so I could take photos and this is probably one of the best from that trip. Absolutely stunning scenery!
“Hórreo and Roses Along the Camino de Santiago” by Wendy S.
Very hard to pick a favorite, because so many of my beloved photos are small details that are great because of the stories they tell…but on first glance might not make someone else think “travel.” So, we’ll go with this one. I took it while walking the Camino de Santiago with a group of teenage pilgrims. Hórreos are used for grain storage, and are a common sight in Galicia. What makes this one uncommon are the roses and ivy.
“Silver Falls, Oregon” by Eli F.
This picture is of Silver Falls in Oregon.
“Sad Hill Cemetery” by Chris D.
This picture shows the area around Carazo, in northern Spain. The final, climactic scene of the movie, The Good, The Bad and The Ugly was filmed here. They converted a cow pasture into a graveyard featuring several thousand burial mounds with a large stone circle in the middle.
“Bourbon St.” by Steven S.
One of the local characters on Bourbon St. having some interactions with some bar staff.
