Rainbows and Smiles - Favorite Travel Photos

Posted on April 24, 2015 at 8:19am 2 Comments

TGIF! I'm thinking about springtime in Crested Butte for some reason. This is one of my all time favorite photos. I took it on Elk Avenue in bustling downtown CB. 

There was one year I drove to Colorado 5 times. I have a habit of going back to places I love. I've never been to WY, ID, MT, or even UT. I'd like to do the national parks tour there. Meanwhile, possibility is this weekend, at least Saturday night may do some camping in Wekiva Springs, …

Hi Mike, thanks for sending me that article. I realised the situation was getting pretty bad, but not to that extent. I have a BBC news app on my phone that is my main source of news at the moment, and there is a section specific to Latin America, but none of this has even had a mention. Just goes to show that even large, international news sources are following the Correa line, which is appalling.

It's hard to believe how far its escalated. I fell in love with Ecuador when I was there and its awful to see what's happening to it. Not sure what we can do to help other than trying to make more people aware?

Thank you so much for introducing me to your wonderful Zoobird, Mike I am so lucky that I met you at the hostel. Please keep feeding me more precious information about Portland and life.

Hi Mike! I know, our Galapagos trip really was wonderful wasn't it? It's such a shame what's happening there at the moment, to think that the next generation might not get to see what we did. What horrifies me the most is how little the world seems to care, it's been a week and still not even a mention in any of the news here.

Hopefully we can get some support behind the Galapagenos!

Thanks for sharing this page with me, it looks like an interesting space, but it might take me a while to figure out how to use it properly! :P

Thanks, Michael!  I followed links from the pics of the stingrays, but did that mostly because I liked what you said about yourself.  I love to have similar birds  "in my space".  :-)

Thanks Mike.  Took a little bit to sign up since you told me about it but happy I did.

Several years ago a gathering of international stone masons met in Barre Vt for a weeklong symposium.  I'm standing under an arch built by a novice so I couldn't wait for the race which started under the arch to begin.

Building walls without mortar is my new passion.  The long standing passion that brought me to this site  is bicycling.  Are there any cycle savvy members here?

Hey brother!  I joined this crazy site just to try to tell you about Nahko's tuning for "Black as the Night"....it is OPEN D  DADF#AD  and then just strum the drone open, and use an E shape for the other main chord.  Watch his hands in the vid once you tune to Open D and you'll grasp it real quick.  Let me know if you have questions!  I BELIEVE IN THE GOOD THINGS COMIN'....
