Seven Falls

Last week I promised to show you the actual waterfalls at Seven Falls, so here they are - I wish it had been a sunny day but we had visitors in town so couldn't choose when to go. The first shot is near the top.
Here's the same spot, looking from above.
Taken from across the canyon, here's a close-up of the upper series of falls.
And finally, the entire impressive set of waterfalls - last week's photo looking up the stairs was taken at the very bottom. There are 224 steps to reach the top.
One of these days I'll go back at night as it's lit up. Admission is $14.00 for adults, $8.00 for children. Visit Our World Tuesday to see lots more photos from around the world.

Hawaii 1997 Revisited (6)

The Pearl Harbor memorial, a very sobering reminder of why we must avoid conflict whenever possible.

Loopy Lightning

From a storm a few weeks ago - I've already posted one shot of it, and this is the last one worth showing you.

Seven Falls

Recently sold to the famous Broadmoor Hotel, Seven Falls is a well-known local tourist attraction.
A few years ago the trails were destroyed by a flood but were completely rebuilt. If you want to climb to the top bring your high-altitude lungs!
It's a beautiful place, and next week I'll show you the actual waterfalls.

Vegas Oddity

For the last of my Las Vegas photos, here's one of the strangest things I saw (and that's saying something) - a display in the Crystals shopping center with lots of LED numbers and mirrors. Here's a view from above.

Here's the inside of the Venetian hotel in Las Vegas. You can sense a theme...

The first weekend of September there's a hot-air balloon festival in Colorado Springs every year. I didn't make it to this year's festival but here a few leftover photos from last year's liftoff.

Bellagio Fountains

My favorite of the free casino shows in Vegas is the Bellagio fountains.
They pulse in time to music.
They go very high at times.
I recommend making time to see them while in Vegas.

This was a remarkable hotel swimming pool, complete with grottoes and hot tubs.
