The Narrows, Zion National Park

The US National Parks are spectacular, and I feel very lucky to have visited a few of them. Happy 100th birthday, and looking forward to seeing the rest someday... #NPS100

Discovery

The space shuttle Discovery, at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Annex (Udvar-Hazy Center) near Washington DC. Well worth the trek out of the city to see this place - a huge aircraft hanger filled with things too big to display in the main Air and Space museum in DC. This includes the Discovery, a Concorde, an SR-71 Blackbird, and the Enola Gay (amongst thousands of other exhibits).

Seeing the space shuttle up close was the highlight for me - a cool bit of history just as SpaceX are ushering in the new era of reusable spacecraft.

Dark Hollow Falls

The most popular trail in Shenandoah National Park? Probably - it's an easy mile or so from the road to get to the falls: a good value walk.

Reflecting Pool, Washington DC

Getting up before sunrise, and peddling across town on a rented bike share is totally worth it when the result is a sight like this. This is the Lincoln Memorial reflecting pool, living up to its name, and doing a good job of reflecting the distant Washington Monument.

The Mad River

Early morning at the Mad River in New Hampshire. It doesn't seem to be particularly mad, at least at this time of year. I imagine when the snow is melting in the springtime it could be a bit more ferocious.

Boston from above

The skywalk at the Prudential tower is pretty cool, especially around sunset. This is the view looking west: Fenway Park lit up brightly; the Citgo sign; the Charles River; and I-90 starting it's 3000 mile journey across the country to Seattle.

Mont Blanc reflection

A self portrait in the Alps, summer 2012. This is from the Aiguilles Rouge, above Chamonix. A nice place to camp, the morning views are not bad at all.

The Grand Bazaar

Lamps hanging in the Grand Bazaar, Istanbul. A beautiful and fascinating place, endless passages packed to the roof with spices, ornaments, clothes.
