The Waterfall



This is the Latourell Falls in Oregon. The rocks feature a pattern of joints caused by stress when lava cooled and contracted, creating interesting prisms and columns over which the falls drop. The lower Latourell Falls drop 240 feet, while the upper falls cascade down about 100 feet.
The sights are very impressive, and you can walk behind the falls and feel the water dropping over you. Certainly an incredible experience.

JoJo

Over 14,000 animals are put to death in Houston every year. This is why no-kill shelters such as SACR are so import.

This is in the city of Messey, in the Rhone-Alps region of France. Didn't check whether the barrels had wine in them, but it was certainly tempting.

While driving back from Whistler, BC, we stopped to watch the sunset. Sharing the evening was this totem-like sculpture.

While strolling the winding streets of Piscicotta many cats are to be found. While they allow snapshots, closer encounters are not welcome.



Everlasting love is showcased on the Pont des Arts bridge banister. We were wondering what you do in case of a divorce... Maybe that would be the time to bring out the bolt cutters.
This bridge is found in Paris, France. They say that the weight of the padlocks has threatened the bridge's structural integrity.

Chillin' in an old Texas bar. Or at least one which was built to look old.

This is the Temple of Ceres in Paestum, Italy. It is a fantastically preserved Greek temple, dedicated to Athena.
