I’ve already written a bit about Taos Pueblo in an earlier photo post so I don’t need to repeat myself. It’s an interesting place because the Native Americans who live there have done so for hundreds of years. It’s not a reservation in the sense that they were forced onto this land after losing the […]
The Cabot Trail makes a 185-mile (297-kilometer) loop around the eastern part of Cape Breton Island, passing in and out the Cape Breton Highlands National Park. It encircles almost the entire island, leaving off only the northeastern most points. Since Cape Breton–and all of Nova Scotia–is very narrow (an average of only 128 km wide) […]
We were zooming along the highway between Santa Fe and Taos, just admiring the clouds when this scene sort of just jumped out at me. The tree was alone in the scene, as was the mailbox and the shabby fence. And the tree had a strange white stripe down its trunk. I thought maybe it […]
I think this photo of a fence at Taos Pueblo looks better in black and white. What do you think? Here’s the color version to help you decide. Taos Pueblo, btw, is a centuries-old Indian community. In many spots, it’s amazingly preserved for buildings made, essentially, of mud. The same people live here who lived […]
We’re visiting again our old friend Forbes on his Horse Mesa Ranch in northeast New Mexico. It’s a burgeoning tradition that we mount the ATVs and drive straight up the wall to the high plateau, where you can get a 360 degree view of the landscape you’re on, and beyond–all the way into Colorado. It […]
We spent two days on Grand Manan Island in the Bay of Fundy off the New Brunswick coast. I wish it could have been longer. Of course, we say that about so many places we visit. But in this case, it was just one view after another. Every little jaunt in the car, and every […]
You would think we’d know better, after years of traveling. But we jumped on the chance to visit New Brunswick for a week, not allowing ourselves enough time to stay and do everything we wanted. One short week in New Brunswick was just enough to show us why we want to return. But one short […]
L’Acadie, (English: Acadia) established in 1604, was the general name of the French controlled colonies in what is now Canada and the US. During the multiple colonial wars between England and France of the 17th and 18th Centuries, the French area of colonization was repeatedly occupied by one side and the other. In 1713, what […]
Driving along the Cabot Trail, mostly through the Canadian Cape Breton Highlands National Park, you’re greeted with postcard perfect scenes around most every turn. Like this one. The side story to this one is that we almost got killed right before we stopped to shoot this. It seems a guy coming from the other direction […]
Wondering what to do in Philadelphia, besides mop up after the Democratic National Convention? We are kicking off a new series of interviews with friends about their hometowns. Since we are always hoping to get helpful hints about cities before we visit–and we are frequently asked for tips and recommendations about specific cities–we figured we’d […]
