Rock Art of Africa

#259 Rock Art of Africa

Rock art is found in almost every state in America and almost every country throughout the world, but the Southwest United States, Australia, and Africa are particularly rich in sites. In Nambia, I was told that a nearby mountain had 20,000 panels, most of them not recorded or photographed. The easiest countries in Africa to […]

The Faroe Islands

#257 The Faroe Islands

Close to Iceland and Scotland, the Faroe Islands are a group of beautiful far north pearls in the North Atlantic. A number of flights a day reach the area, which only has 50,000 residents. Bring money, as the Faroes are mostly associated with Denmark and Denmark prices are high. A car is very expensive but […]

The Empty Quarter, Saudi Arabia

#255 The Empty Quarter, Oman, Saudi Arabia

Yes, I am a desert guy, and this list reflects that obsession. This post, as we count up to 301, highlights one of the largest wilderness areas on the planet outside of Antarctica. People live only on its outskirts, and the Rub’ al Khali, as it is known in the region, wasn’t crossed by outside […]

Nitmiluk National Park, Australia

#254 Nitmiluk National Park, Australia

This park of canyons, waterfalls, and ancient rock art is at the very top of Australia’s Northern Territory. Access is by hiking, boating through “gorges,” and helicopter. I was lucky to visit after a very active wet season. There are only two seasons here, wet and dry, and there were many waterfalls flowing dramatically from […]

The Mississippi River, U.S.A.

#253 The Mississippi River, U.S.A., Part 2

Continuing from last week’s post of the Missouri/Mississippi River system, I will focus here on great vistas and photo opportunities along the Mighty Mississippi. The river is also home to a number of sites including ancient Native American cities and structures. Several great view points of the Mississippi can be found in the state where […]

The Etretat Cliffs and Normandy Coast, France

#251 The Etretat Cliffs and Normandy Coast, France

The often stormy Normandy Coast, has, of course, its place in history. Anyone visiting the Normandy Beaches and cemeteries cannot help but be moved greatly by the remembrances of war there. My father was based in Britain but was not sent over for the invasion, otherwise I might not be writing this now. Like the […]

#250 Fish River Canyon National Park, Namibia

#250 Fish River Canyon National Park, Namibia

Often called the Grand Canyon of Africa, Fish River Canyon is indeed a deep gorge, and could probably be the deepest such feature in Africa. It is in no way comparable to our own Grand Canyon in size or beauty, but is still a very interesting landform. Several roads lead to the rim in Southern […]
