Weekly Photo Challenge: Refraction 10-22-14

Here is my entry for this weeks photo challenge “refraction.” Rainbows are an optical and meteorological phenomenon that is caused by both reflection and refraction of light in water droplets resulting in a spectrum of light appearing in the sky.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Signs 10-05-14

Here is my entry for this week’s photo challenge. I ran across this one while doing the coast to coast walk in Auckland. It seemed to me that it was made for circulars.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Endurance 09-20-14

Here is my entry for this week’s photo challenge “endurance.” After completing a five-day 39-mile trek through the Andes Mountains I was looking a bit worn out and dirty, as were my hiking boots. The last day of the hike was more challenging due to the fact that it rained over night. It didn’t affect the climb up very much, but it was a steep and muddy descent down the back side of the mountain. As evidenced by the dirty seat of my pants I ended up on my butt a couple of times. But then again our professional guide landed on his three times.

Weekly Travel Theme: Edge #3-01-14

Here is a third entry for this weeks photo challenge “edge.”  Costa Rica is well-known for its canopy tours. They are located all over the country. Almost all of them are over the tree tops. But the one located at the Hacienda Lodge in the Rincon de la Vieja National Park in the Guanacaste region, is a canopy tour over a canyon. As you prepare to start your tour, you are on a big wooden deck, just like in your backyard. After you are strapped in all you do is lift your feet, drop over the edge and you are off. Immediately your stomach drops as the cable sags a little on your first zip line. When we reached the first platform it was the size of an oversized picnic table which was bolted into the side of the canyon wall, about 300 feet above the canyon floor. We then zipped to our next platform, which you see in this picture. We then had to use the U bolts at hand and foot levels to move along the edge of the canyon wall to get over to the ledge that our guide is standing on. Then came the fun part. You see that rope the guide is holding? Now grab that rope and swing across the canyon to the other side. Then climb up the U bolts to the next platform.
