PhotoPOSTcard: Sunrise at Oxbow Bend

Last updated on October 11th, 2020

The mountains at Grand Teton National Park are big and bold and in your face.  They rise straight up from the valley floor with no rolling hills to soften their approach. One of the most popular places to see the sunrise in the park as it brightens up this jagged skyline is from Oxbow Bend on the Snake River.

Thanks for visiting.

PhotPOSTcard: A Zanzibar Sunrise

Last updated on October 13th, 2020

We ended our tour of East Africa with two days on the island of Zanzibar, off the coast of Tanzania. After almost two weeks of driving through game parks and seeing so much wildlife, sitting on the beach for a day felt like I had been transported to a different world, even though it was just a short flight away. I love to watch sunrise and sunset on a beach. Since our hotel was on the island’s east coast, in this case it meant getting up early to see the Zanzibar sunrise. Definitely well worth the early morning wake up call.

Thanks for visiting.

This is Africa: A Hot Air Balloon Safari in the Masai Mara

I have a huge fear of heights and I was not sure if I would be able to handle the ride without getting a bad case of vertigo. I was really torn, because this would be a once in a lifetime activity and there was no turning back once it started.

PhotoPOSTcard: Bear Lake in Rocky Mountain National Park

Last updated on October 27th, 2020

Bear Lake is a popular, easy half mile hike in Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado. Towards the end of September, the mountains around the lake start to glow as the aspens change their color from green to gold. The scenery is particularly beautiful in the early morning.  Going early also has the added advantage of avoiding the majority of the crowds that flock to this part of the park to hike the many popular trails in the area.

Thanks for visiting.
