Views from Gore Mountain

I just returned from my annual trip to the Adirondacks to visit family. One evening we went to Gore Mountain for to see a local theater production – which was very fun, by the way – and to enjoy the views. I didn’t want to disturb the actors by taking pictures inside the tent, but here are a couple of pictures from near the top of the mountain.

Travel Theme: Beaches

Where’s My Backpack‘s travel theme for this week is beaches.

It was difficult to decide which image I wanted to share, but decided upon one of my favorite photos from Ohope Beach, New Zealand.  Its atmospheric quality seemed to fit my mood this morning. I hope that you enjoy the photo.

Travel Theme: Bridges

Running a bed and breakfast, I don’t have much opportunity to travel. However, I do get out of town once in a while. When I saw that “Bridges” is the theme for Aisla’s travel challenge this week, I decided to share a photo that I took in Florida while visiting my mother a few years ago.

What I Had Missed

I took the pictures below at Natural Stone Bridge and Caves in Pottersville, NY. (In the second photo, note the size of the person on the right side of the entrance to the cave.) This beautifully scenic attraction is just about 10 miles from where I spent the summers of my youth and I only recently visited it for the first time. It makes me wonder what else I might have missed and, of course, what am I should really get out to see near where I live now. Next post … back to Kansas!
