    The Grand Canyon is one place I have not seen. Close enough to go there just never have.

    I thought I'd better show some beautiful places in the U.S.A.
    In case anyone thought I didn't care.

    We need one of these. Beautiful pic. We could build one of these with the labor of all our prisoners. With all the prisoners we have and our prisons being full to capacity across our country, we could probably build one in record time.;) .........Just a thought.

    I have never been to Europe or the UK to see any of those castles but I would like too. I imagine a dark cold not very well lit space but never being there I really don't know. They probably are beautiful inside.

    There's a wee castle just along the road from us.
    When the laird and his good wife were alive, they were very nice to us,
    and allowed me to tune the organ and try out new music.
    I was regularly fed and watered after a couple of hours, they loved it.
    The walls were about 12 feet thick.

    That would have been fun. I am glad you had that experience. I should have thought of a music room in castles but never did. I guess we would be more likely to find a music room in a castle than in modern homes over here anyway. A lot of people have pianos and organs are declining I think but they are usually just thrown in a front room and never used.

    I did say it was a wee castle, lots of narrow staircases.
    (not suitable for organ access.) I always played in the courtyard.
    BTW I always had the guards on duty 3-4 Irish wolf hounds.

    That ash covered temple in Japan is exactly what our entire town and others looked like when Mt. St. Helens blew. Everything was covered in ash up to an inch thick and the entire landscape was that gray color.
    I have seen documentaries on the crystal cave in Mexico. I have always wanted to go there and see it but I don't think visitors are allowed. I know it is like over 100*F down there and very fragile. I have worked just outside of Chihuahua for 9 weeks in the mid 90s and didn't know about it then. It is amazing how large those crystals are. Look at the size compared to the people in there. Makes me wish I had been a scientist or geographer.

    It's an odd looking picture, the temple.
    Looks like a black and white picture
    until you see the people with coloured clothes.
    Those crystals are colossal and anyone who goes in there has a time limit.
    Those two pics let us know how small we really are.

    Now there is a place I have been to a couple dozen times over the years. I back in the 70's and 80's we had some good friends who went to college there and stayed for a few years afterwards. Used to make 4-5 trips a year there. It was an eleven hour drive for us each way.
