I wonder if it’s enjoying the peace and beauty of the setting sun.  Is it full from a busy day?  Has it had its evening meal?  Is it in its home bush or still on its way?  Such questions to be contemplated.  I think I’ll just enjoy the scene for a bit.

Wandering around quite early one morning on the Florida/Georgia border I was watching this small boat racing down the river.  Just watching and waiting until finally he passed through a small patch of peekaboo sunlight.  Luckily I was ready.

There’s nothing like hiking with a full backpack on, coming into your destination spot for the evening.  After a full day on the trail, the feet are tired, the shoulders are tired, the legs are tired.  But the day has always been great.  The spectacular untouched vistas of the high Sierra in eastern California are second to none.  It’s such a pleasure to be there, hiking along well maintained but rugged trails, the air pristine at 10,000 feet.  What a treat!  Here, we’re coming into Lake of the Lone Indian in the central Sierra.

Setting up a tripod inside the casino was a bit tricky.  As soon as I was spotted I was told No!  Can’t take photos of people gambling.  Don’t want to incriminate anyone.  No worries.  I managed to get off a few shots inside to no ones harm.

Look.  Up in the sky.  If in the middle of a large cities downtown, you’ll probably have to look through any number of huge buildings.  Never having worked in one myself, I’ve always wondered what all those stories are for.  How much office work does one city need?  And these buildings are tall and many.  So many financial, legal and insurance people I guess.  Good for them, but I’ll stay street level in the cities and get up high in the mountains.

It’s summer.  Time for backpacking the high country, wherever that is for you.  For me, that almost always means the mighty high Sierra that runs along the eastern border of California.  For those who’ve never been, it’s so hard to describe the beauty, ruggedness and majesty that lives in those mountains.  Here, we’re approaching the Rae Lakes basin on the eastern side of Kings Canyon National Park, looking down from the almost 12,000 foot Glenn Pass.  An amazing stretch of country and the Rae Lakes area is one great place to make camp and explore.

With a good friend being in Denmark right now, I thought of my time in Copenhagen.  Wandering around in that beautiful city is so easy and rewarding.  With statues and architectural art everywhere it’s not hard to need some time to get around.  Even though the city is entirely flat and perfect for walking.  This statue depicts C. F. Tietgen, one of Denmark’s early industrialists.  He looks good with blooming tulips.

For a golfer, there’s nothing quite so spectacular as golfing in Ireland.  I mean Wow!  The terrain is difficult and spectacular, the people friendly, the music alluring and there’s fresh Guinness.  And did I mention the golf?  It’s the best ever.  Here we’re at the infamous Ballybunion in County Kerry.

So nice in any situation, Austin’s Zilker park is a great place to roam around in.  When you’re with your sweetie and the suns winding its way down and the city gets hugged by the suns late rays… well, life is good.
