Gumbo's Pic of the Day, September 29, 2014: Fall colors in the Rockies

  Depending on where I've lived, my favorite season varies somewhat, but in the Pacific Northwest and now Alberta, I'm very fond of early fall.  The weather (usually) is still pretty nice and generally it's dry.  The shortening days and...

Walking through Central park a couple of weeks ago I came across this beautiful blaze of color. One last tree saying good bye to fall and hello to winter.

October 10, 2016: Fall Colors, Crowsnest Pass

DrFumblefinger ·
Drove through the Crowsnest Pass this past weekend and the fall colors were starting to take shape. Birch and aspen were a beautiful golden, and the tamaracks also starting their fall transition. A clearing storm added some contrast to the beautiful scenery. One of my favorite drives anywhere!

When the US east coast has a severe winter then the folks in northern Europe escape with a cool and dry season. Perhaps we can put all this talk of "Warming" safely to bed !

I enjoy the majesty and power of large waterfalls. I remember a sign but not the location that said something like not to walk on the slippery rocks because you will fall into the forceful currents, then be swept over the falls, and then you will die.

Re: Gumbo's Pic of the Day, August 23, 2015: Victoria Falls - “The Smoke That Thunders”, Zimbabwe

Mac ·
That certainly brings back memories! Sometime in the late 1970's my wife and I were lucky enough to travel to Zambia and drove down to the falls from Lusaka staying at a hotel close by. The next morning we decided to follow the foot path that went down to the bottom of the falls, through the bush, well watered by the spray of the falls. It was only on arrival at the bottom that we were greeted by a large notice saying "Beware of snakes" at which we beat a hasty retreat back to the hotel!

The aerial images give an amazing perspective! I didn't know how narrow that gorge was. Was this a special helicopter overflight or were you lucky enough to get these shots from the window of your airplane?

Grand Escapades ·
The gorge is actually extremely narrow, and it is only from the air that you get a full perspective of the Falls, as you have too much mist to have a full grasp of the whole. Yes, I took an helicopter, and it was an amazing flight. From Zambia, you can also take an Ultra Light Flight, which must be even more amazing. I didn't cross into Zambia and regretted it afterwards. I would also have loved to jump in the Devil's Pool on the Zambian side, but I think there was too much water at that...
