just this last weekend went for a little solo backpack/fly-fishing trip to a small backcountry lake nestled in a valley between 13000 ft. peaks in the weminuche wilderness, not too far from Durango. Right now, because i'm thinking about it, i'd have to say that its one of the most beautiful places i've been. but i'll be staying in a farmhouse in the bavarian countryside in three weeks (with its own private lake to boot), and that might just blow my mind...so i'l have to post back then i guess.

Toughie....


I'm with Bill on the Caribbean. Jamaica just kills me. Haven't been back in 3 years but I just love it.

I'm also a huge fan of S.V. AZ, down in Jimmy Beam's neck of the woods. (Biased on this tho, my mom lives there and built this house with it's back to the Huachuca Mtns, with an amazing pool in the backyard and a well stocked bar. There's nothing like checking out the Milky Way at night in the pool with a cold beverage and listening to the coyotes howl up in the Mtns... I never seem to visit mom enuf. )

Hands down tho, it has to be Table Rock Lake, Southwest Missouri. Shell Knob/Viola specific. THAT is God's country. Amazing hills, an unbelievable lake, and outstanding people. I mean the water is like GLASS at sunset, and is a perfect temp all summer long. And the really good part? Nowhere NEAR Branson...

Riding up thru Wyoming and into the Tetons on my bike has got to be one of the most awesome sights.

Sheesh, do we only get to pick one? I simply can't be done.
Here's the top five that blew me away so so far. Not in order, that would be asking too much.

1. Hawaiin Islands- take your pick
2. Giza
3. Schwarzwald
4. Sedona
5. Glacier National Park
and Puerto Rico ain't so shabby either.

You know, I thought I liked people around here, but now.

I hate you all.

Don't worry, that's just the jealousy talking. Man, someday I'll be able to travel like that...

It's very hard to pick one, but I'll go with Thunder Creek Basin near Park Creek Pass in the North Cascades of Washington.

One of my children was even conceived there (After 18 miles of backpacking that day, no less. Dang, I wish I were still young!)

I'll probably go with Algonquin Park in Ontario, a wilderness the size of Rhode Island with canoe trails. The actual scenery, while beautiful, isn't stunning like the Rockies or Andes, but the night sky 100 miles from any light pollution was the most amazing I've ever seen.

Seeing the Northern Lights one night on the way to the Chairman's Canadian stomping grounds (Alberta) was pretty spectacular, as well.

Ecuador was beautiful in places, and a trip to Chile/Argentina is pretty high on my list of future places to visit.

I've been to a lot of places, but one of the most beautiful sights had to be the first time I saw the Badlands of S.D. I had no clue what to expect, and when I walked up to the first outlook spot and saw the hugeness, I was humbled. Pictures do it no justice.

Hawaii has also been nice to my eyes. Maui especially, where I had the best snorkelling ever.

Other places I've liked:

1. St. Thomas and St. Bart
2. Antigua - Our Honeymoon!
3. Niagara Falls
4. The first coochie I got in
5. Whale watching in San Diego at sunrise
6. The flower market in Amsterdam
7. Mardi Gras in New Orleans
8. The delivery room when my son was born
9. Wrigley Field.

Its not a natural wonder, but one place that Ive been to that really took my breath away was Parc Guell in Barcelona. It was supposed to be a master planned community for the rich, but was never completed. It was designed by Antoi Gaudi, but he only completed the roads, the marketplace area, and three houses. The whole park looks over the city of Barcelona and the Mediteranean Sea.

some (not my) pics
