Pipestone National Monument may win my award for the biggest surprise (next to Chaco which blew us away). I did not expect the beauty this park has to offer. Yes, there is a backstory of the stone quarried for use to make pipes, and I do not mean to downplay that; however, the beauty took me off guard. The waterfall, even more so. I came upon the scene at a time of day when it was a little dark, so this is a 5 image blend to really bump up the shadows.

 

Let me know what you think.

Fort National

is a fort on a tidal island a few hundred metres off the walled city of Saint-Malo.

 

The great military architect Vauban had it built in 1689 to protect Saint-Malo's port.

 

The fort was originally called Fort Royal.

 

In 1789 the fort's name became Fort d'Îlette or Républicain, then Fort Impérial and, after 1870, Fort National.

I had no idea. Still relevant today if less romantic these work horses move product across nations, bringing me shtuff from all over the world. (K-She 95 still lives on in my head 'shtuff')

I was politely informed that this is port of Tacoma property and as such photography was illegal so I didn't get the night shot I wanted, but this'll do. :)

The Pena National Palace, popularly referred to only as Pena Palace or Castelo da Pena, is located in the village of Sintra, parish of São Pedro de Penaferrim, municipality of Sintra, in the district of Lisbon, in Portugal. It represents one of the main expressions of 19th century architectural Romanticism in the world, constituting the first palace of its kind in Europe.

 

On July 7, 2007 he was elected as one of the Seven Wonders of Portugal.

Arches National Park: the world’s largest concentration of natural sandstone arches. A paved scenic drive leads to many of the major viewpoints within the park. The park’s rock formations delight the eyes, make these giant sand stones a great view of the surrounding landscape. The photo was taken at one stop along scenic drive.

This river there in Yoho National Park drops out of sight and through the natural bridge being cut into the rock.

Early morning captured from under the trees there at Glacier National Park as a brief rain shower passed through as the day was breaking. Really neat to listen to the patter of rain on the lake surface in the otherwise silent morning by Lake McDonald.

Yosemite National Park is in California’s Sierra Nevada mountains. It’s famed for its giant, ancient sequoia trees, and for Tunnel View, the iconic vista of towering Bridalveil Fall and the granite cliffs of El Capitan and Half Dome.

It's not in the 'Times' best seller list, but an article I wrote on supporting a person with autism through Christmas, was considered worthy enough to get published in the members magazine. The fact that it was published is gratitude enough to know that someone somewhere may find value in it.

 

Sadly, this is not visible on-line and so I cant share the link, only the link to the 'National Autistic Society' ...

Take care everyone, and thank you all for your endless support and encouragement.

Tucked into the northwest corner of the state lies Colorado National Monument. A huge park full of granite and sandstone monoliths rising straight out of the earth to meet the sky. As the last rays of sun cast across the plateau, the rocks turn a deep red ominously framed by the dense smoke on the horizon.

Today is National Camera Day, how are you going to celebrate? Think of the difference that the camera has made in the world. It can be used for good, to shine a light upon things that have never been seen or it can be used for bad. How has the camera influenced your life? What do you think of our image-saturated culture?

The National Monument on Calton HIll, Edinburgh. Taken about 10:30pm.

A detail from my brother-in-law and sister's vintage jukebox-size radio, showing their and my childhood radio stations in southern Michigan. These days, I love NPR, but now that we live so close to the border, I can't get it on any of my radios (have to listen via computer or cell phone - or drive a couple of miles south). But I can get CBC (Canada) and now I love that, too. Very nice to learn about Canada, as well as get a different perspective on world and US events.

A pretty view there taken while traveling along the Icefields Parkway.

Thought I'd put this here to shine a light on NATIONAL BEER DAY.

Each year on January 29th, National Puzzle Day recognizes how exercising our brains with puzzles is just one of its many benefits.

 

Whether it’s a crossword, jigsaw, trivia, word searches, brain teasers or Sudoku, puzzles put our minds to work. Studies have found that when we work on a jigsaw puzzle, we use both sides of the brain. And spending time daily working on puzzles improves memory, cognitive function, and problem-solving skills.

 

The one I'm working on now. I thought last winter that one was bad this is hard too. But it gives me something to do. Little by little I hope to finish it. Not a quitter! People should not buy others difficult puzzles!!!! But I think will rewrap this next Christmas and give it back to my friend. He He.

Yosemite Not just a great valley, but a shrine to human foresight, the strength of granite, the power of glaciers, the persistence of life, and the tranquility of the High Sierra. First protected in 1864, Yosemite National Park is best known for its waterfalls, but within its nearly 1,200 square miles, you can find deep valleys, grand meadows

The sign pretty well describes her too.

But ever so loved.

Redwood National Park is located on the northwest Pacific coast of California, between the cities of Klamath Glen on the north and Trinidad on the south border or the park. The Park is situated along a long, narrow stretch of northern California coast, nearly abutting Oregon.
