Have any vacation photos that depict that special or unique moment you were there? Please share.. I am sure we've got plenty to spread around  :)

Unique for me would be that we even went.  I don't get to go on vacation much.  We went to Yellowstone in July.

Yellowstone is cool :)

I'd have to have my wife post some of our trip across the country, and also on our roadtrips and camping trips if we still have them around.

I love Yellowstone.  That is a waterfall just south of Old Faithful.  It was beautiful.  Pictures don't do it justice.  I am thinking of taking the short one back next year and taking a couple of days to explore.  Unfortunately we only had one day this year.  You can't even begin to see it all in one day.

My dad used to drive from CA to Wyoming every other year to take us to Yellowstone.  We'd spend a few days there just to see the scenes and stuff.  Great place.

Also went to Yosemite a bunch, there are some awesome rock formations and waterfalls in that park as well.

Jess and I took the boy camping at Shasta Lake a couple times, also wonderful natural beauty.

So.. this will take some explaining.

I went to the Burleigh Horse Trials (Meaning I have been to every 4 star trial in the world) however, the night before I'd stayed up until about 5 drinking Creme De Menthe and Pernod. So, I lay down on the grass and decided to have a nap. Well, I was out like a light in some sort of wonderful semi-coma.. and whilst I was asleep some horrible bastard put the dog on me.

So, this is me asleep at Burleigh with a dog on me.

You know I love it!  (because I'm a pig lover.)  I also LOVE Lake Tahoe.  Where is that golf course located?  I used to live close to the lake (In Carson City) but it's been a few years since I've been there.

I figured you'd like it since you're fond of pigs. The mini-golf course is on the California side between the Lake recreation area and the outlets. We always go while we're up there. We vacation there every summer for a week.

I love it too, and have been going every summer for the past 8 years. It's a lot nicer now that they've built up the area. The heavenly Village is awesome and of course the Lake is spectacular.  the mini-golf course is where they have this little cheepie kids carnival rides place.

Thanks.  Yeah, it's totally awesome.  Alot to do there, whether it actually has to do with the falls (stand peering at them, go underneath them (on the Canadian side), or boat right up next to them (Maid of the mist on the United States side).  Clifton Hill has wax museums and Ripley Believe it or not Museums.  There is a Hard Rock Cafe and a Planet Hollywood there.  Two gambling casinos, Marineland (which is kinda like Sea World)  and a live butterfly "display" plus tons of restaurants.  I love love love Niagara Falls (at least on the Canadian side.)  On the United States side, there is less to do, but none less fun, there is an aquarium, a Native American Indian museum, a wax museum, plus shopping outlet mall nearish, also I think you can tour the hydro electric plant (although I have not done so yet.)  I like going in May because the weather is pretty nice and the flowers are in bloom.  I think they should pay me to advertise for them.  lol

It will be so hot if you go during the summer.

Yeah, that is true. Anaheim is pretty hot and humid during Summer, too. I was at Disney LAND in 1989, which was 18 years ago - I am guessing you were at Disney World  :) Well, maybe I can do an Autumn vacation, as that's how it's looking anyway. Thanks for the tip :0)

Yes, in August!!  It was terribly hot and crowded.  I think fall and winter are great times to go, try to avoid school holidays like Christmas break if at all possible.

Thanks Erin. 

9-10 would be a great age.  Megan and Hunter had fun but they couldn't ride all of the rides and we didn't even bother going to Epcot.

Start saving now!!  ;D

I love Disneyland. Cool pics Kristen. We haven't been there in about 3 years. Last time we went, Diane and Julie said I could not have any coffee unless I rode the Tower Of Terror with them first thing in the morning, so of course I rode it because I'd do just about anything for my morning coffee, and after we rode it, they bought me a souvenir commuter mug which I promptly filled with coffee.

This is the return part of the trip. We essentially made a big loop around the country (I-55, I-40, I-17 to Phoenix, some highway to I-8, I-5 again, Highway 101, I-5, and I-80).

Somewhere in the Sierras on I-80.

Jason and Papa fishing at the Moss Landing beach. Jason was unsure of what to do with the perch. They were small anyways. :D

This is the return part of the trip. We essentially made a big loop around the country (I-55, I-40, I-17 to Phoenix, some highway to I-8, I-5 again, Highway 101, I-5, and I-80).

Somewhere in the Sierras on I-80.

Metaphor, the tree of Utah. Right after you pass the Salt Flats (equally cool, but my pictures didn't turn out), you'll see this tree pop up out of nowhere.

Those are awesome pictures, Jess. Seems like you had a great time. I especially like the pics at Monterey Bay Aquarium. I've always enjoyed looking at pics of sea creatures/undersea life/etc....very interesting. ;) O0 8)



I love the Monterey Bay Aqaurium. been there a few times and if you are there for the sea otter feeding, that's quite cool.  nice pics Jessica. did you guys happen to swing by Carmel while you were in the area? the beaches there are awesome. 

I do too. I haven't been there in ages. The first time I went, was 21 years ago this month, when I was 6. That was my very first vacation. That whole area (Carmel, Monterey, etc.) sure is lovely; it's just a long way away (300+ miles) from where we've lived.

I'm not enthralled with the Aquarium because 1. I've seen it eleventy million times, 2. They've really screwed up how cool it used to be, and 3. It's extremely expensive. Jason, however, had an awesome time because he's never seen it before, so seeing him excited about it was rewarding in itself. We got stuck at the penguin exhibit for an hour though, due to his infatuation with "Happy Feet". :D I do like the views from the outside of the Aquarium. Nothing like seeing the whole bay all at once.

Didn't make it to Carmel this time around. We had three weeks to visit family and friends and that definitely took all our time, considering how large our families are. ;D

Yeah, road trips are quite fun, but you definitely need the stamina to drive all that way. On the outward trip, I managed to drive a little bit for Rice, but I have issues driving a manual transmission. :P The way back I didn't drive at all because our car was packed to the brim with gifts, food, and a new pet, so I couldn't adjust the seat.

i've always been incredibly bored by castle and cathedral tours, but these guys found a way to spice it up: make you think you're going to plummet to your death! you go up and through all these little narrow staircases and over rickety wooden walkways suspended at least five stories over the ground while the tour guide tells you the story of how the entire structure has disastrously collapsed only once, and that really not that many people slip over the edge and fall every year. the number of untimely deaths of tourists here is really quite manageable. it was sorta half tour, half thrill ride.

the water was really warm...but it was cold on the surface.  We had a great time until Bode chaased ducks out into the middle of the lake.  Then I swam after her because I was worried about the motorboats.
We raced back to shore.  She is fun in the water.

Thanks Philip and Michael.  :)

I always love your vacation photos, they are always somewhere exotic that I will more-the-likely not be going to in my lifetime.  So it's kinda cool traveling by internet.  I don't think I've ever seen a bad photo of you!  :)

Newport Aquarium was pretty cool and surprisingly busy for a Tuesday afternoon during school hours. 

That's so cool that you were there before too Michael.  We don't usually travel too far from home, as I am a homebody and don't like being too far from my comfort zone.

These are not really vacation photos, but just a few pictures I took while we were out walking recently.

For those of you who like to see some mills... ::)

First three were all taken on February 9, 2008, in Alkmaar (about 40 km north of Amsterdam, and 40 km south of where I live). It was a relatively warm day, although you can't tell from the pictures. The second pic shows my brother and sister (posing!). The three of us went for a walk of about 7.5 km, starting and ending at one of the local train stations.

Two more from another walk... Those were taken just north of Alkmaar, on a very cold and windy winter's day (February 16, 2008).
This time we went for a 10 km walk (our usual stretch), but the surroundings were a bit disappointing. So not a lot of pictures were taken that day. :( Ah well, at least you get these two. ;)

The first one has the dunes in the background. (Behind them is the North Sea). The second one shows a lake in a former sand quarry that we were walking round about. I do like that one... :)

...And here's a third set. These ones were taken May 3, 2008, when we were walking in the city of Hoorn and the neighbouring village of Blokker. It was another 10 km walk, and the weather was just fine.  :) Unfortunately, my pictures didn't all turn out the way I hoped them to, so there's only three for you to see.


http://www.fileden.com/files/2007/2/17/785141/Hoorn01.jpg

Between Hoorn and Blokker.
You can't see it, but on the red and white sign it says "Alkmaar" and "Amsterdam".
(Just to give you an idea of where Hoorn is  ;))

Thanks Cat. :)

To be honest: those first two pictures don't really look like the actual pictures... I don't have a digital camera, so I had to scan them, and they always turn out different that way (I dunno... more intense, or darker or whatever). Luckily I have some tools to enhance the pictures, but it didn't turn out too well for the first two. The blue skies are still way too blue. The rest of the pictures are more like the actual pictures.

Thanks for sharing your walk with us Henk.  They are beautiful pictures.  I LOVE windmills, although I'm sure they lose their novelty if you grow up with them.  lol 

The lake/sea picture and the town street picture are lovely.  I love brick streets, they are very hard to come by in America anymore.
The mama duck and ducklings are darling!  We have a few families of ducks here currently although I have not been able to catch them on film as of yet this year.

Thanks for sharing your walk with us Henk.  They are beautiful pictures.  I LOVE windmills, although I'm sure they lose their novelty if you grow up with them.  lol 

The lake/sea picture and the town street picture are lovely.  I love brick streets, they are very hard to come by in America anymore.

Somehow people (particularly in US) seem to mix up the two countries quite easily. I know there's a lot of similarities (both are in Europe, both are on the North Sea coast, both are kingdoms, both are small countries) but it's no fun if you're living in either one of them.
Here's the difference: Denmark is where they make dreadful cartoons about Islam, The Netherlands is where they make dreadful movies about Islam. ;)

I apologize, I did not mean to insult you (if that was considered an insult?)  My memory is getting worse and worse for places.  I almost said Holland but I knew that wasn't right.  I'm afraid I never did learn anything in school about your area of the world. 

Please accept my apology.

I still maintain that your pictures are beautiful...wherever they are from.  ;)  ;D

Actually, I just realized why I screwed up.  I have another accquaintence from another message board (the 80s xchange) that is from Denmark.  So I think that is why it was stuck there in my mind.

...And here's a third set. These ones were taken May 3, 2008, when we were walking in the city of Hoorn and the neighbouring village of Blokker. It was another 10 km walk, and the weather was just fine.  :) Unfortunately, my pictures didn't all turn out the way I hoped them to, so there's only three for you to see.

Between Hoorn and Blokker.
You can't see it, but on the red and white sign it says "Alkmaar" and "Amsterdam".
(Just to give you an idea of where Hoorn is  ;))

The official name is The Netherlands, but it's often referred to as Holland. I don't really mind what you call it - as long as you don't confuse it with Denmark. ;)

Philip is also right though. Geographically, Holland is only a part of The Netherlands (two of our 12 provinces, to be exact).

My sister was STOKED to go to her grave and then see her handprints.  She is incredibly obsessed with Marilyn and has an impressive collection of memorabilia.  This trip was definitely a high point for her.  Now I just need to get my hands on an actual signature for her collection and she'll be all set. ;D

And thank you for the compliments about my family.  Alicia (my sis) doesn't think she's good looking at all.  She had a lot of problems when she was younger with teasing and self esteem, so she's pretty scarred emotionally. :(

I LOVE Reno.  It has a small town feel, even though it's full of casinos and stuff.  The scenery surrounding it is lovely, especially when the Sierras are covered with snow.

There sure is.  It's way the hell out on River Road, and it's called Wild Things Animal Rentals/Vision Quest Ranch.  It used to be known as Oxton Kennels, but that changed in 1985 or so.  It is a very cool place to visit.  The animals are loved and very much spoiled, even the "mean" ones. ;D  It sucks though....their oldest lion, Josef, just died.  He was the model for Mufasa in "The Lion King".  We got to see him before he died and he was a very beautiful cat, but you could tell that he was getting up their in years and just not feeling good. :(

There sure is.  It's way the hell out on River Road, and it's called Wild Things Animal Rentals/Vision Quest Ranch.  It used to be known as Oxton Kennels, but that changed in 1985 or so.  It is a very cool place to visit.  The animals are loved and very much spoiled, even the "mean" ones. ;D  It sucks though....their oldest lion, Josef, just died.  He was the model for Mufasa in "The Lion King".  We got to see him before he died and he was a very beautiful cat, but you could tell that he was getting up their in years and just not feeling good. :(

Here's the link for them:

Hey Cat!  In 76/77 we drove from Wash DC to Vegas. My mom had been in the country for about 7 years at that point but still didn't know a lot.... she saw the arch and my dad told her it was a bridge we were going to have to drive over.... she totally freaked out!  I was in the back of seat crying because she was so convincing (in her fear that I got scared too.)


;D




here's a pic of my daughter, me, & her friend (our adopted daughter for the week) on a beach at South Lake Tahoe. the sand was hot and the water icy cold. this was taken just before the  girls went riding on jet skis Sea-Doos

Mike,

You're like me... I wear shoes to the beach too!  ;D



Great pics Brigette. I lived in Vegas twice (once when I was 5 and again from 4th grade ^ to 7th grade.  We went to Hoover dam a lot. Apparently my folks felt the need to drag me along every time we got company.  I hated it!  But the rest of your pics are great O0

did you chow down on any oysters at your place?

About this pic: It was taken inside the Orleans Casino shortly after my family and I saw Don Rickles perform, which was definitely a high point in my life.

My co-workers and I had this running gag where we jokingly referred to the coffee shack where we hang out at during our breaks as "The Blue Oyster Bar," after the gay bar where the characters in the Police Academy movies always accidentally walked into. My brother and I saw that sign and I just had to. I immediately texted it to my work buddies, and after I got back one of them told me that when he received it he was laughing so hard he was in tears.

super cool pics. these are the kind of get togethers that sophomoric movies are made about. I still have yet to get some White Castle. you guys must have had a crazy good time hanging out.

I'm assuming you're referring to Harold & Kumar Go To White Castle? To be honest, after we each ate several of those potent little gut bombs, it was more like a Cheech & Chong movie, you know, when they're rolling in Cheech's Impala and they're sparking up and these huge white clouds of smoke are billowing out the windows?

Well, after those sliders settled in and started working their magic, I'm sure my Crown Vic looked like that going down the road, except the clouds coming out of the windows were brown.  :o :o :o

But yeah if you get a chance you should definitely try some. I should warn you, once they start kicking in they're not for the faint of heart. As a matter-of-fact when I was heading out of St. Louis towards KC, I stopped at a White Castle and bought 10 of those bad boys, and they're just now starting to take effect. I look forward to spending a good portion of tomorrow sitting on the terlet.  :P

geez, did you guys go down to the subterreanean level of Chicago on that dark pic of Andy  :o

Actually that was in the subway, which I didn't know Chicago had.

so is that 2nd pic 1060 West Addison  ???

Can't remember what street that was.

I was kind of half-wondering if you were gonna say something.  ;)

But yeah it's funny, because after I dropped Andy off in St. Louis I suddenly thought to myself, "You know, Cat just posted some pics of the Gateway Arch on inthe00s a while back and I really ought to double back and take the ride to the top and maybe get a few pictures, not because it's something I'd been wanting to do for a really long time or anything like that but because it would be the perfect opportunity for me to steal Cat's thunder."

I posted those photos on Flickr and someone commented on one of them saying at first they thought that a tragedy happened there-so it is possible. However, I don't think they would have put a sign saying "Local Wildlife" if it is a memorial. They probably would have had a plaque honoring the person if such a thing happened there-but you never know.

I'm willing to bet that someone put up a sign and a few stuffed animals  and then regular passerbys deposit additional animals to help it grow....wonder what happens to them in inclimate weather tho.

Yeah, I was driving, taking photos, eating and talking on the phone all at the same time.  ;)  Ok, ok, j/k. I don't drive anymore so, no I was not driving. I'm sure I "drive" (excuse the pun) Carlos crazy when I keep opening the window to take photos. They come out so much better than going through the window/windshield. But I think when I shot that one, we were stopped in traffic.

Thanks gibbo

It's not granite, its a soft sedimentary rock that is easily eroded by the wind.  The rocks form strange shapes by the action of the wind and weather.  This is a generic description of Badlands - called that because not much grows there and there is little water.  The page contains a link to The Badlands National Park which is where that photo was taken.

The Badlands looks like a place I would like to visit some day...  There is a similar place in Australia called the "Bungle Bungles' (Aboriginal name) but the rock looks different....
They both look like another planet.

I didn't get a chance to take a lot of pictures on our trip (can't really call it a vacation), but here are a few:

This was on our way to California in the mountains east of Bakersfield.  The snow was coming down a lot harder than you can see in this pic.

This was on our way back home.  Taken at a rest stop in the Mojave Desert at sunset.

Okay, these next pictures are for Badfinger-Fan.  I did this side trip especially for you, and we timed it just right, because we left Flagstaff super early, but got to this destination just as the sun was coming up. :)

Well, I'm standin' on a corner

If you ever happen to go through there again, you just need to find the bit of Route 66 that goes through downtown Winslow.  You can't miss it at all.

Alright, I finally got off my lazy ass and put pictures from Denver and Colorado Springs on my Photobucket.  Here you go :D

Giant blue bear peering into the Colorado Convention Center.  As you can see from the traffic lights to the left of him, he's a pretty big fellow, about 40 feet tall.

The Capitol building.  The dome is covered with real gold. :o

Jason riding a buffalo at the welcome center to Garden of the Gods Park in Colorado Springs.  By the way, we ate bison burgers while there.  Very very good.

Garden of the Gods Park and Pikes Peak behind it.

Rice and boy posing for me on some rocks we climbed in the park.

Balanced Rock.  Seven hundred TONS of rock perched precariously on this little itty bitty stump of rock.  It's been like that for thousands of years.

we took to bus out to the Vegas sign and there's a small parking lot and there were several other people there doing the touristy thing like us
http://i28.photobucket.com/albums/c235/badfingermike/FabLasVegas.jpg

we stayed at The Mirage. right behind us is the volcano that erupts every night. it was pretty cool  8)

here we are getting ready to go inside to see the show
http://i28.photobucket.com/albums/c235/badfingermike/LOVE.jpg

our first night we had dinner at The Range inside Harrah's across the street from the Mirage. Lady Di had a filet mignon and a lobster tail  :o  and I had a huge prime rib. we had a 2nd story window table overlooking the Vegas Strip.

More great photos, Mike.  Tell me, how was "Love"?
thank you Shannon. so you haven't seen LOVE?  it was fantastic, I highly recommend it especially if you're a Beatles fan.  here's a taste of LOVE  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a50NE4pYjGU&feature=related  but here's the kicker. the Donny and Marie Osmond show was much more energetic, more audience participation and interaction. they are so so good and the theatre is small so you're really close to them. still, I would see LOVE everytime I went to VEGAS  8)  it's cool because they play Beatles music non stop at the front of the theatre/box office so everytime you walk by you're hearing Beatles tunes.


great pics mike! Glad you guys did spend some time together on the trip  ;)
thanks Q  ;D  well, I had to this time or there would be no 26th  ::)  and I treated her special, ordered room service with her favorite wine (white Zin)  8-P  and some chocolate dipped strawberries and I gave her a nice little bracelet which she hasn't taken off since so I think she likes it.

this was our 2nd night, dinner at a romantic restaurant called Canelletto, inside the luxurious hotel "The Venetian"  we started with some crispy fried calamari and then both ordered a dish that was like a seafood lasagna filled with crab, shrimp, & scallops. it was good. as we ate, a group of opera singers asembled nearby and we were treated to wonderful singing. the ceiling is an artificial blue sky with clouds. made me feel like I was in the truman show.

Oooh!  More great pics!  Did you wander around in the Luxor at all?  I lived in Salt Lake City when they were building it and rumor had it that it was cursed....several workers were killed during construction of the hotel by accidents and what not, as it was supposedly being built on an ancient Indian Burial grounds.  When it was finished in '93 we went to check it out over a long weekend and stayed in one of their Spa suites.  It was a gorgeous place!  I heard they renovated it in '07 so it's totally different now.

Hubby is from Hong Kong.  Some of his family still lives there.  I'd love to go and visit, but I'm terrified of flying. :P

Awesome pictures, by the way. :)

Thanks,
It's a long flight too. About 12 hours from L.A. or San Fran.

Maybe There's some room to build one between the igloos and empty beer cans (need to ask a USA bank for $ first tho)

lot of trees, grass and streams, and very few people.

Peace and quiet.

Funny you say that, Q, there was actually a t-shirt you could get in the shop that says "Paddle Faster....I hear banjos!!"  I almost bought it!  It was a GREAT time-I have to remember tonight to write a great review for that shop...

www.smokymountainrafting.com

The guide, sitting on the back of the raft, was the MOST knowledgeable guide I have ever met-he knew everything about the area we were in, had rafted in all but 2 states himself, and also works as a Fishing guide in the Florida Keys every summer.  Talk about the life!  He literally gets paid to play all day. Matthew and I WILL be going back to do that again.  If anyone on the board here lives even remotely near Gatlinburg, TN, this is a trip worth making!

As promised...here are some pictures from my vacation. This is just a selection - I took about 70 pictures in all. As you all know (I assume) I still don't have a digital camera, so I have to scan my pictures and enhance them afterwards because a lot of the quality of the pictures gets lost in the process of scanning. This is the best I could do with the equipment I have.


First, here's a picture of the village of Stokkum where we were staying. I should've picked a more sunny day...

So....where's the pic of your face plant?

I went for a nature walk down a similar treacherous path...and I was wearing a cap. I was watching so intently where to place my feet that I didn't see the 6 inch wide vine hanging down  over the path. My cap obscured it ....I whacked my head big time....and I still ended up on my backside!

How long have you been a sailor ?

All my bloomin' life.

Me mother was a mermaid.

Me father was King Neptune.

I was born on the crest of a wave

And rock the cradle of the deep.

Seaweed and barnacles are me clothes,

The hair on me head is hemp,

Every bone in me body's a spar,

And when I spit, I spit tar.

It seems you are an old salt who only needs a cool XX beer to properly steer  :D

It was in another winter, after a great snowstorm,
I carried my fifty carcass onto a top of a mountain hut.

a creature you better never know,
and said come in I'll give you slaughter, little worm.
