I’ve Never Seen That But I Have Seen This

P1000512

One of my friends in the UK posted spectacular photos of the ruins of an old abbey. I was impressed and yet a bit saddened. Here in the US we really don’t have anything like that. This country is still too damn young for one thing. We’re also all too prone to tearing down the old to make way for the new. But we do have a plethora of natural wonders. Sights that make your jaw drop and your heart flutter.

This is a photo I took from the lip of the Lower Falls of the Yellowstone River, where it plunges into the canyon it created. Note the mist at the bottom of the photo. That’s created from the three hundred foot tall falls. It’s not even remotely as wide the ones at Niagara but a damn site taller. It’s breath-taking.

So we’ve got places like this going for us and it’s possible that we’ll always have them. Provided Trump doesn’t plow them under for profit…
