The annual Bentleyville “Tour of Lights” is in full swing in Duluth right now through December 26th.  This popular attraction draws thousands to the area and every year.  This past week the warmer than usual temperatures have made for even larger crowds.

Time with Trees

After a couple of trips to the big city, it feels good to spend some time away from the hubbub of metropolitan energy and spend a bit of time in the northern woods.

To The Horizon, #2

Another point of view for seeing all the way to the horizon.  This is the view from Mt. Shasta, looking west/southwest, in northern California.  I love the hazy mist that fills the lower elevations, it adds a bit of mystery to the shot.  For me, it instills a feeling that I should put on my hiking shoes and start walking, to see if I can reach the horizon, and knowing that if I walk far enough, I’ll arrive at the Pacific Ocean.

To The Horizon

Much of the western part of the U.S. consists of wide open spaces and driving through these areas exposes the traveler to amazing vistas along the way.  I can’t recall how many times we would crest a pass and see nothing but miles and miles of space all the way to the horizon.  Then you would climb again and there would be another vista of the road going on for miles and miles to the horizon.  Next time I make this trip I intend to stop more often and capture some these amazing vistas.
