Vietnam War Memorial reflecting visitors, trees and the Washington Monument

Photo of the Vietnam War Memorial in Washington DC. Most of the photo shows a reflection in the shining granite of the memorial. The memorial has the names of those Americans killed during the war engraved into the face (which can be seen in the photo if you look closely).

If you look closely you can see a reflection of the Washington Monument.

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.

Electrical outlets on a large tree

I spotted this in Luang Prabang, Laos. I couldn’t really understand why.

A few days later I visited the night market which is along this street and they string up electricity for all the vendors. That still doesn’t exactly explain why someone decided to mount an electrical outlet box on a tree trunk but I do believe it was put there in support of the electrical needs for the night market.

Banana leaves on tree

Banana tree leaves while driving up to Fraser’s Hill, Malaysia. For 20 km (more probably) before you get to the small town of Fraser’s Hill you drive through a nice forest.

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.
