Iconic Barn at Grand Teton

The T.A. Moulton barn is an iconic structure in Jackson Hole. The view with the barn in the foreground and the Teton Range as the backdrop is one of the most photographed locales in the valley. Thomas Alma (T.A.) Moulton was among the people who moved to the area in the early 1900s. He spent more than 30 years constructing a barn that still stands today. It’s all that remains of the homestead he and his sons built.

Pier Corner

Set in California at Santa Monica’s westernmost point, the Santa Monica Pier is a staple of this picturesque seaside community. Packed with family-friendly activities, vibrant street performers, restaurants and shops, the public pier also has stunning views and over a century’s worth of history. Here is a corner view of the famous pier.

Santa Monica Pier

Jutting out into the Pacific Ocean, it symbolizes the heart of Santa Monica and is one of the most photographed locations in the world. Constructed in 1909, the storied Santa Monica Pier was the first concrete pier on the West Coast. It quickly gained a reputation among locals as the best fishing spot in Santa Monica. Santa Monica Pier fishing remains a popular activity to this day. It contains an amusement park, concession stands, and areas for views.

Pier in the Distance

Palisades Park is a 26.4-acre park in Santa Monica, California. The park is located along a 1.6-mile section of Ocean Avenue on top of an uplifted unconsolidated sedimentary coastal Quaternary terrace with exposed bluffs, offering views of both the Pacific Ocean and the coastal mountains.

Walking along the park on a hazy morning, one can see a pier in the distance. The Santa Monica Pier is a large double-jointed pier at the foot of Colorado Avenue in Santa Monica, California.

Walkway to Lake Junaluska

The still, serene waters of Lake Junaluska, North Carolina are nestled in a scenic Smoky Mountain valley about 27 miles west of Asheville. A leisurely stroll along the Lake Junaluska Walking Trail that surrounds the calming waters offers priceless views.

We will be posting images from this area from a visit last year.

Hiking Up Roan Mountain Bald


Located on the North Carolina/Tennessee state line, Roan Mountain is actually more of a mountain range about 5 miles long – called a massif – than it is a single peak. Famous for its Catawba Rhododendron gardens with its brilliant purple flowers in spring. Grassy Ridge, along the eastern flank of Roan Mountain, is the longest stretch of grassy bald in the Appalachian Mountains. These treeless mountaintops offer spectacular views, fields of grass waving in the winds, and an alpine-like hiking experience. Will post images from this vista over the next few days.
