Classic Cars: 1956 Chevy




Just an average day, doing some shopping, and what pulls up next to me but a cherry red 1956 (I think) Chevy.  That guy spent a few weekends on that, eh?  You see a lot of classic cars around here (no salt on the roads in Colorado), but that one was about the most elaborate.

Mayan Pyramids

Pyramids from a couple of places in the Yucatan, Chichen Itza and around there.

That's me, climbing a pyramid. Notice how steep it is, and it's a long way down

Not all the pyramids are in pristine condition, or dug out completely for that matter. Notice how small the people are?

Milan, Italy train station at night


Some pictures I took at night at the Milan train station.  It's a huge, garish Fascist structure which really gives one the creeps at night!

A Walk Down Waldo Canyon

Let's go for a walk up, down and around Waldo Canyon. Wear comfortable shoes, it's over 6 miles and we up over a thousand feet.

This used to be the sea floor. Now it's one of the highest points on the continent. Go figure.

This is about as high as we're going. Downhill from here. Pikes Peak is looking fine.

That's the direction of Colorado Springs. Doesn't look like much? Well....

Don't forget to clean off your shoes before we get back in the car!
