stone carvings of people on a wall

I think this areas is called the Leper King Terrace on the North end of the Terrace of the Elephants in the Angkor Thom complex, north of Bayon temple (Siem Reap, Cambodia). There is a narrow pathway that winds between the wall of the terrace.

Santubong Jungle Trek, Mount Santubong, Damai, Borneo, Malaysia.

Quite a wonderful hike that is very steep as you climb to the summit (the longest steep climb I have ever done, by far). This photo is taken on the trail that runs along the base of the mountain.

View of Glacier National Park, from Bears Hump Trail

Looking south into Glacier National park from the top of Bear’s Hump trail, Waterton International Peace Park. The view is incredible.

This photos is from a magical day during my visit to Glacier-Waterton National parks. I started with a great ranger led hike to Iceberg Lake (I kept waiting for good weather which we finally got). Then I drove up to Waterton International Peace Park in Canada. The scenery at several overlooks on that drive were amazing. I then hiked the Bear’s Hump trail and stayed at the Prince of Wales Hotel which was quite nice.

photo of banyan tree growing over temple entranceway

I can’t remember the temple name, I’ll add it once I have a chance to go through my photos and organize them. The temple is in the Angkor park area, which includes: Angkor Wat, Angkor Thom, Ta Prohm (which is famous for the banyans growing over the temple) and many more.
