Rocky Mountain National Park

Had to go to Denver on business but had a chance to finally visit Rocky Mountain National Park.  Took two hikes, one 3 mile (near Bear Lake) and one 4 mile (Wild Basin).  It was lovely as the trees are starting to change color.

Locust Point, Fells Point – Baltimore

A Monday hiking group had decided to have a walk from the Korean War Memorial today.  I took the Metro and bus to the starting point. Paul gave a brief talk about the memorial and then the group hopped on the harbor commuter and we went to Locust Point where the UnderArmour Headquarters is located. We checked out the immigration memorial and then took another boat ride to Fells Point.  We began our two mile walk along the harbor, followed by lunch.  Here’s a few photos from today’s excursion. I didn’t bother to take any photos of the mother Canadian goose with her two goslings, sorry.

Visiting Relatives in Ohio

It’s been almost thirty years since the last visit!

Minneapolis Zoo

It was over 90 degrees. The enclosed tropical rain forest was cooler than the regular part of the zoo.

Camels were in the lake.

 

Sea Dragons are neat.
