Re: A visit to Thomas Jefferson's Monticello

PHeymont ·
Jefferson has always been a fascinating and difficult character, with many sides to his life and work. Aside from the Monticello and other designs, he was also a pioneer agriculturalist, importing many varieties of flowers and vegetables, and improving them by breeding. But for me, the hardest task, mentally and emotionally, is to reconcile the brilliant political and philosophical words with an absolute refusal to even question the institution of slavery, when many others of his time in...

Re: Signs of Pinedale, Wyoming

GarryRF ·
Cant decide. Is that really an Old Cowboy Town ? Or a bit of Disney magic to bring in the tourists. Looks interesting enough to make me want to explore.

It is not only an old cowboy town, Garry, it is a modern cowboy town. If you suggested to the locals that they're a Disney act, you'd be as likely to be hog tied as run out of town. The people here are real ranchers, farmers, cowboys and outdoorsman. Some seasonal help might come to help the restaurants during peak seasons, but they usually don't settle down here.

Re: Road Trip, Day 4: Fort Mason, San Francisco

San Francisco such a beautiful city. I've never been to Fort Mason next time might have to check it out. $45 per night not too bad of a deal considering it is an expensive city to be in.

Very entertaining DrF . I enjoyed looking around another smalltown USA. I presume it's still a working City with 10,000 people living there. Looks like a setting for "Blazing Saddles" - with less horses ! Did you know the Town "Sheriff" got his name from the "Shire Reef" - the Reef being a medieval name for a law enforcement officer of the English King. They had Town Reefs before that. But the Shire Reef of Nottingham got a horse with flashing hooves thrown in with the job. Bit like a...
