White Sheep Temple

Baegyangsa

On a rare, good-weather day I caught a bus heading north from Gwangju to Naejangsan National Park (내장산). Despite being stung by a giant insect, that I’ve never seen before or since, it was one of my most memorable days in Korea.

Eyes on the road

Road tripping

Today’s photo wasn’t taken while driving. Instead, this is from the parking lot for the Fay Canyon Trail.

12-photo photomerge of the Grand Canyon's Bright Angel Trail after snow

Today’s photo (a 12-photo photomerge actually) is from our New Year’s Eve hike down Bright Angel Trail after snow fell during the night. We didn’t go all the way down, not even close. But this was a spectacular trail even with limited visibility, and the trail probably wasn’t as crowded as it is much of the time.

Hiroshima Peace Memorial (AKA Atomic Bomb Dome or Genbaku Dōmu)

When I visited the Atomic Bomb Dome in 2013, work was being done on it. The construction was not to bring it back to its former, pre WW2 state; instead, it was to keep it from falling to pieces during an earthquake.

Copenhagen living

Today’s photo is of the neighborhood just to the north of my place in Copenhagen last summer. I found the streets to be quite charming. At dinner time children could be seen playing in the streets while parents drank in the sun at picnic tables in their front yards.

Upon doing a little research I found out that the area (also called Farimagsgade) was built in the 19th Century. All of the houses are fewer stories than what you find closer to the city center. It was thought that no one would want to live so “far” from work in central Copenhagen when these were first built. Now, with Copenhagen’s biking system, these are some of the closest residences to central Copenhagen in which owners don’t have to walk up dozens of stairs and have other people living above and/or below them.

Originally, two or three families lived in each house. Now, only single families live in each unit. I’m guessing the prices are very high, and the cars parked out front attested to the wealth of the residents.
