Very blue pool of water in the forest

The water really is that color blue. See more photos of my visit to the Kuang Si Waterfalls in Laos.

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 a green and yellow grasshopper

I took this photo on the Campuhan Ridge trail in Ubud, Bali, Indonesia. The hike was quite nice short (about 1 km, 2 km round trip) walk. The goes starts with some vistas of rice fields and nature. Then the trail goes into a village setting with quite a few artists galleries for the tourists. At the end of the trail there is a very nice restaurant with great views.

View of Rocky Mountains

Rocky Mountain National Park is as wonderful as you would expect. Amazing views, great hiking. Wonderful place. This photo is from the Calapyso Cascade trail (starting from the Allens Park trailhead), which is a great hike.

photo of a monkey sitting on a bike sign in Penang

I took this photo while walking from Batu Feringgi to Tanjung Bungah. There were some nice views but it probably isn’t very smart to walk it as considerable distances have no sidewalk at all and you have to walk within a foot of where cars and trucks zoom by. And even when there is a sidewalk you have to be watchful for huge holes, feet across and several feet deep, you could easily fall through.
