Have you been to NYC? It’s pretty dirty. Trash pickup is a mess. It’s not really anything they can do, its dity because its so crowded. Buffalo doesn’t have the crowds. It is a lot easier to keep things clean. Buffalo itself, as within
This is an award winning photo and I think some credit should be acknowledged to the photographer. >[Bruce Omori](http://www.hawaiireporter.com/hilo-photographer-receives-award-from-smithsonian-museum-of-natural-history/123), owner of Extreme Exposures Fine Art Gallery in Hilo, received the Windland Smith Rice International Award for his lava photo titled “Volcanic Vortices,” which will

>Not sure if you are aware of this, but basically all serious photographers do post processing I am very much aware of this, which is why I don’t like much modern photography. I have been a photographer for over 20 years and I think
There’s a lot of camp grounds, trails, and other outdoor recreational areas that have been built up around Portland due to its large population. There are a lot of options. If you are dead set on swimming, the Clackamas river dumps in to the
No quite the opposite actually. There is only one venomous spider native to NZ – [The katipo](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Katipo). Recently some australian spiders like the red back have become established after coming over on ships and the like but in terms of native flora and fauna

K see the light shining through the hole in the rock? Look to the very top, and then a teeny bit to the left. Do you see the point that scoops back out to a smaller point? That looks kinda like a sea lion
CA is definitly ok solo. (I’m a woman and travel around CA solo a lot) The national parks are ….national parks. Clearly marked paved roads, ranger stations, lots of info. And they are used to catering to an international crowd not just Americans. I
He thought the idea whereas 1000s of climbers did not. At the time in April of 2006 it wasn’t against the law. It just wasn’t done because of wink wink nudge nudge gentlemans agreement with NPS. Clint Eastwood climbed the Totem Pole when Eiger
Just from my personal experience speaking politics with people in VT-they are more approving than most might be. That being said, I don’t like approval ratings because they don’t capture the extent to which those being polled approve. Do I think Obama lived up
For anyone who might know the answer: Would it be allowed to kayak, or in some other way ‘boat’ on this water? I have this feeling like I *have* to do this at some point in my life; hike 12 miles up to this

I spent 4 months there last year as a grad student. I lived in McMurdo station, which is the largest station on the continent (and I happened to work in the tallest building on the continent – a big high bay on skis). A
Yup, but the crowds only happen if you let them. If you make an effort, you can avoid them by going early/late in the day or on some of the lesser known trails. I didn’t get away on too many lesser known hikes, but
Ya, except that it was a province of South Africa… and was represented in Parliament. To cut a long story short, the UN put Namibia under South African administration but South Afrixa decided rather to incorporate the country as a province. ” The Mandate
The waterfall on the right is apparently called “Cascade du violon/de la scie” or ” Violin falls / Saw falls “.

I know that it’s possible to get rid of the watermark like that, but you have to think, anyone can crop the picture easily, basically everyone knows how to do that. Removing a watermark the way you did, most people won’t go to that
Having been to that spot, it’s not really possible. There are large boulders all around, so you can’t just keep walking back and getting the same vantage point with the mountains through the arch. To illustrate, there’s just this one ledge you can stand
It is the area in the United States that consists of Washington, Oregon, parts of lower British Columbia, and the pan handle of Idaho. What makes the PNW what it is is the Cascade Mountain range that splits Washington and Oregon down the Middle.
The basic way to do it is to go somewhere with little to no light pollution and shoot RAW (because you will need to do a lot of editing later and need all the data you can get). Put your camera on a tripod
This is San Josef Bay! I have a story about this bay. I grew up about 2 hours east of this bay and one Saturday, when I was 8 years old, my parents decided to take the family for a hike to this bay.
I did this two summers ago with some friends. Absolutely incredible. The sunsets on the ocean were almost as unbelievable as the foggy hills. We had to be mindful of the tide. I loved the parts where we had to time running across stretches
