Thanks for the beautiful pics. One of these summers I'm going to start touring the U. S. of A.

Excellent idea, rbciao! Although I'd recommend visiting the desert regions of the southwest in the shoulder seasons, rather than during the heat of summer. No question in my mind that some of the best scenery in the world is in North America. Ciao!

Re: Gallery: Boulder County Farmers Market, Colorado

What an extravaganza of colours ! That's the type of market I love. All the fresh produce in front of the counter so you can select your own choice. When I'm on the road touring I have to be reminded that I cant cook all those delicious vegetables. There's a few there I couldn't name - never seen them before ! Wonderful display !

Thanks for reminding me of my time in Boulder. The city's been such a pioneer in healthy foods for years .

I love markets...and the history they embody, from those like Basel that have been in the same place for hundreds of years to the 19th century enclosed markets that many cities developed (and some kept!) but I have an especially good feeling about markets like this one, and our New York Greenmarkets that have revived the market tradition in places where it was nearly gone, and made a success of it. What a long sentence!

Re: A stroll through the Betty Ford Alpine Gardens, Vail

Does winter arrive early in these gardens ? Is that due to the elevation? Does it remain cool in the Summer too ? I'm thinking of the likes of Mexico City where it should be tropical but its elevation keeps it cool all year. Lovely photos of the Flora and Gardens. Was it really that empty ?

Thanks for the comments, Garry. Yes, winter arrives early because of the very high altitude. Over a mile and a half above sea level. Summers are very nice -- warm (75-80F) dry pleasant days (no humidity to speak off), and it always cools down nicely at night, so most places don't even have air conditioning. It really was that empty. No more than 6 folks in the garden including my wife and I, and of course not counting the hundreds of birds flying about.

Awesome car DrFumblefinger! A very nice find indeed Thank you for sharing it with us. By the way, if I had to guess the vintage, I would also say 1955.

a bit of rust can give so much character to an old vehicle..and this one is a good example

Wow...that is one tough old car. I can't help but be impressed that this old car is still on the road, especially if the engine looks half as bad as the body. They don't make them like this anymore. By the way Dr Fumblefinger, to answer your above question, I believe this is a 1974 Chevrolet Impala, or at least what's left of it.

Nice of the Bear to tell us to fight back if attacked

If a grizzly attacks you he likely wants to dominate you. Of course, you need to use your judgement on the spot, if you've time to assess. A thin wasted grizzly might...

I don't know what amazes me more...this cocky bear telling us we better be ready to rumble if he comes at you, or the fact that he posed with this sign in the first place

Great article! Laughlin really is so different from Vegas and if you can call any spot with gambling, slow paced, Laughlin is it.

This is a wonderful post. Great pictures. I passed just south of here a couple of summers ago, but I did get to Oatman AZ. See my blog post here . I look forward to getting back to Laughlin and to Vegas.

Re: Arches National Park — One of America’s Finest

Travel Luver ·
I need to get to this Park. It is simply amazing! Besides Arches, what else can one do around the Moab area?

Re: Arches National Park — One of America’s Finest

DrFumblefinger ·
There's a ton of stuff to do around Moab, Travel Luver. There's also scenic Canyonlands National Park nearby, well worth exploring. Off-road biking (bicycle, not motorcycle) is extremely popular. Hiking in the cooler seasons. Whitewater rafting is excellent in the summer. And you're less than a day's drive from your next Utah destination, such as Bryce, Zion, or Monument Valley. One of my favorite spots in the US!
