Saying Goodbye to Summer and the Milky Way

Saying Goodbye to Summer and the Milky Way

I think it has become a bit of a tradition on POTW, around this time of year, for me to bemoan the end of summer.  I think this is also a signal that I'm getting old and crotchety.  🙂  It's not that I don't LOVE the fall here in East Tennessee, it's so beautiful......

Where the Great Wall Meets the Sea

Okay, last picture of the Great Wall of China... for this year at least.  🙂  Last week I mentioned that its common for people to think that the Great Wall has a beginning and an end, when in fact, it has many beginnings and endings.  Last week's Picture of the Week...

The End of the Wall

Last week I was discussing the epic journey that my friend Teddy and I took over two days on the Great Wall in the Zhuizishan region of the Wall (as best we can tell, Zhuizishan encompasses several "sections" of the Wall, which are perhaps a bit hard to define... so...
