    Does anyone have a favorite vacation photo or two that you wouldn't mind sharing? Last month hosted a trip to the Canadian Rockies. With a background in Geology, this was the next best thing to the sex I don't seem to be getting. Standing in front of a glacier over a mile wide with valley walls rising 3,000 to 5,000 feet above me really gave me the feeling of being insignificant in a good way.

    Mt Athabasca, on the right, rises to 11,300 feet with the glacier about 6,000 feet. All of these sediments were once lying flat on the sea floor. They have been turned up through plate tectonics and eroded by moving ice and water to form the wide U-shaped valleys. Banff National Park - Alberta, Canada

    Dome Glacier in Jasper National Park - Alberta, Canada along the Icefields Parkway. Two sites are a stone's throw away from each other.

    Getting the photos in the post was a major chore! For some reason the URL button isn't working for me. Someone else's post has been copied with their URL replaced by the picture URL from my photo-sharing site.

    Not a great pic below per se, but when you simply say "favorite" then we can factor in things like memories and emotions.

    Here's my partner this past September, on the historic North Bridge over the Concord River, in Concord, Mass. The Minuteman statue is in the background, because this was the site of a famous Revolutionary War engagement in 1775. The kayaker just happened to be paddling by, so I waited and clicked, a simple snapshot.

    I recently got back from a month in Fiji where I volunteered in a school. This was snapped on one of our weekends off when me and several other volunteers went to one of the islands.

    RJ could use a FAQ.

    Finding the best pic of my travels is difficult, if not impossible, so I took one from each of the three Continents visited outside Europe.

    Not a dumb shit at all; it took me a bit to get it. You can't use one on your computer - you have to upload it to a photo sharing site and then embed the URL for the photo. Royal PITA if you ask me but I guess it saves a shit-ton of server space. icon_neutral.gif
