Happiness

Is there really anything better than being 2 years old and riding a carousel? This is what pure, unadulterated happiness looks like.

Hanging Out at the Oakland Zoo

Normally I wouldn’t post a photo of a zoo animal, but this Gibbon at the Oakland Zoo was just too much to pass up.

The Bear’s Tooth

The Bear’s Tooth is the mountain that gives the Beartooth Highway it’s name. Charles Kuralt called this America’s most beautiful road, and I think I would have to agree. It is well worth the extra drive coming into or leaving Yellowstone National Park.

Million Dollar Cowboy Bar

Touristy? Sure. But a whole lot of fun too. A must stop bar in downtown Jackson, Wyoming. Don’t miss the saddle bar stools in the background.

Old Faithful Inn on a Cool Autumn Night

There aren’t a lot of rooms in the world that evoke such emotions in me as the main lobby at the Old Faithful Inn in Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming. Its massive fireplace and the warm glow of soft lights on polished wood make me feel cozy even in a big space.

Early Morning at Swiftcurrent Lake

This is one of my favorite shots. The air was so cool that morning and the water so still. This is across Swiftcurrent Lake in Glacier National Park, Montana.

This is New Castle Presbyterian Church in New Castle, Delaware. New Castle is a gorgeous little colonial city on the banks of the Delaware River.

Cherry Blossoms on the Tidal Basin

The annual blooming of the cherry blossoms along the tidal basin in Washington D.C. is a beautiful time to visit the city. This is a photo of the Thomas Jefferson Memorial with cherry blossoms in full bloom.

Roadside America

One of the coolest little out of the way attractions in the country. Roadside America is a giant miniature village located in Shartlesville, Pennsylvania. I can’t imagine going to see this place and not smiling. This is one of my favorite sections, a small country church.

Glen Echo Neon

My mother remembers going to this Maryland amusement park as a child. Now it is a quiet place to walk, sit, read or take an art class. The signs, the carousel and a few other reminders remain from its past life.
