Long story short, I found myself in Oslo, Norway, with a Eurail pass and a week to spare before my flight back to the U.S. It was midsummer (June 27-July 3, 2015) and my only plan was to get all the goodie I could from my train pass. I found all that on the Bergen […]
This photo was sort of a byproduct of the shoot where I got this shot. As I was walking down the hill towards the car, the sunset was still gleaming behind the clouds. And though this is Joshua Tree National Park, this was the only Joshua Tree in the vicinity. Of all the places I […]
At the invitation of the Breckenridge Colorado Tourism Office, we visited this Rocky Mountain ski town in September 2015. It didn’t take much convincing. We’re big fans of hiking, fall colors, mountains, and small town history. In fact, this could be the start of an annual pilgrimage for us–a dose of fresh mountain air with […]
As we hiked around the Hidden Canyon in Joshua Tree National Park, we were struck by the various scenes posed by the bright sun and the dramatic clouds. And of course the trees. And the shadows provided by the bright sun as it got through the clouds. And, we got a couple other shots while […]
On my own for the day, I decided to hike the McCullough Gulch Trail south of Breckenridge (CO) because of the promised reward: waterfalls at the top of the trail. This was one of several trails recommended by our hosts, the Breckenridge Tourism Office. (The others lead to Mohawk Lakes and Blue Lakes.) If you miss […]
[Editor’s Note: At the invitation of Breckenridge Colorado Tourism, Travel Past 50 returned to the Breckenridge Distillery–and a bunch of other Breckenridge sites–in September 2015. During this visit, and since we published the initial story a year ago (below), we learned a thing or two about the Distillery’s experimental ways. Our passionate tour guide, Taylor, […]
I had some time to kill today and so drove up the Boreas Pass Road from Breckenridge, Colorado to get a view of the town from above, its ski slopes, and maybe some of the brilliant yellow aspens that have just turned. I found a nice place to pull off the road and get a […]
Kris got up pre dawn this morning to do yoga. And since I’ve pretty much sworn off doing anything resembling exercise until I’m wide awake, I decided to head out with the camera to see what sunrise in Breckenridge looks like. Well, this is what I saw this morning, and if this is indicative of […]
We haven’t seen many clouds since we began this western U.S. National Park odyssey. So we were excited when we drove up today from Los Angeles to Joshua Tree National Park. The clouds just kept building as we traveled east in to the mountains. And lo! I think we even saw some of them dropping […]
Since we’ve been traveling, I’ve done some bold (for me) things. I’ve hiked 120 km in the Guatemalan jungle. I’ve climbed Cradle Mountain in Tasmania. I’ve hiked most of the way up an Andean mountain outside Quito, Ecuador. (An incoming storm persuaded me that going the rest of the way would be pretty stupid.) And, […]
