Capybara! You ate guinea pig, right? This is their big brother, about 80 pounds big.
 
A cat can love a rodent...

... if the rodent is bigger. 

Puzzle 1: What is this thing?

Puzzle 2: Where do they usually live?

Puzzle 3: Why have they been seen in the wild in Florida?

Kayaking with my brother down the Paulinskill River in NJ on Saturday, I saw this bridge. I tried to get a nice reflection picture, but the kayak rippled the water. Sky was cloudy and undefined too, but I like it nonetheless.

Trip to see Frank Lloyd Wright's Kentuck Knob in Dunbar, PA USA. One of many Wright houses one can tour, Fallingwater, in fact, is about 6 miles away from here and well worth the trip.

While hiking in northern NJ, a bit north of Blue Mountain Lake, saw more than a few of these things. Nice to see that non-pesticide solutions are being researched.

On my way to work this morning I saw a very nice sun pillar. Just a cellphone picture, but it is what I have.

This park is a place I hike and kayak at least several times a week. There are numerous trails of varying difficulties. The Appalachian Trail runs through it for several miles. Many trails intersect the AT along those miles. There is an historic village re-creation at Millbrook Village that has demonstrations several weekends during the summer. Poxono boat launch provides access to the Delaware River for fishing and general recreation. I use it for kayaking down to the gap.

When I visited this park earlier this week, the northeastern US was in near-drought conditions and the falls was little more than a large wet patch on the gorge wall. That said, the gorge itself is very impressive. The layers of different rocks that line the walls are interesting in their own right. Had there been even a small amount of water going over the falls, this would almost certainly have deserved 5 stars!

The details of the miniature structures were nicely done. The many sections, with their own attendant details made looking at it with a friend almost a game. The various levels from which to view the layout definitely gave a new perspective. The overt Christian slant during the presentation, along with poorly recorded music pumped through an ancient sound system were a poor and unnecessary addition to an otherwise nice attraction.
